Hot cocoa for 2

I'm working on getting all the recipes I usually enjoy all fall/winter long perfected before my kids start begging me for them. This was delicious!

1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 c palm sugar
1/4 c pasture raised heavy whipping cream
1- 1 1/2 c almond milk

Pour all ingredients in sauce pan on low- medium heat. Bring to slight simmer and remove from heat. Enjoy

* Add 1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract for mint cocoa

pumpkin coffee creamer

So I stopped drinking coffee for a few months because of all the mystery ingredients that are in coffee mate (the flavors I liked anyways) so my wonderful mother who also eats a paleo diet ran across this recipe, modified it a bit then made it. This recipe is so yummy you will have the urge to put a straw in it and drink it plain. Sooo delicious!!! 2 cups pasture raised heavy cream (full) ½-3/4 c canned pumpkin 4 tsp pumpkin pie spice 2 tsp cinnamon 2 Tbs vanilla 2 Tbs maple syrup Blend well, add to coffee Raw pasture raised heavy cream is paleo. If your not into dairy of any kind then try this recipe with mimic cream (nut cream) or coconut cream! Its absolutely delicious!!

Fall is in the air...

One of the things I use to really look forward to about fall was Starbucks pumpkin spice latte... Yummmm but after starting eating the Paleo way I realized I can't drink that yumminess anymore! Noooooo but I created a Paleo version. Obviously doesn't taste exactly the same but its pretty damn good! Especially with a pumpkin cupcake, donut or apple spice cake! 1 shot of espresso 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut sugar 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree 1 cup hot almond milk Mix all ingredients together and pour into your favorite coffee cup and enjoy the taste of fall! pal
