Heavenly Minty Hot Cocoa…from the garden!

I am absolutely in love with this new drink that I tried out yesterday! It’s so rich and soothing – I’m probably going to be all over it in the winter, but it’s also pretty perfect for right now as a bit of a summer thunderstorm seems to be sweeping by.

What I did is I picked some fresh peppermint and spearmint from the garden and then steeped them in hot water. If it’s for a regular mint tea, I would leave them in there for just a few minutes, but for this drink, I actually let them steep in a thermos mug for an hour to get the flavour nice and strong.

Then, I heated up some soy milk and made half a cup of a very light hot cocoa drink (about a quarter as mild as I would normally make it), and then topped up the glass with the hot mint tea. Try it!! It’s insanely delicious!

      I’m going to try it with a bit of coffee this morning instead of cocoa, I’m guessing that’s going to be really good too!
