Healthy Peppermint Hot Chocolate

So, in the spirit of the holiday season, I decided to make some hot chocolate this morning. Here's my recipe:

2-3 tsp cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups raw milk
2 tbsp raw honey, or stevia if you are trying to cut the calories
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
dash of celtic sea salt

Mix together cocoa & salt in a large mug. Warm milk, honey, and flavorings in a pot on the stove, just until it's warm so you keep all the nutrients alive in the honey and milk. Whisk the milk into the cup with the cocoa. Serve!!
