  • 4 cups 960ml unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons ground cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 12 oz 340gr high-quality semi-sweet chocolate
  • Pinch of salt
  • ½ cup heavy cream heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • In a medium pot, simmer the milk with spices over medium high heat for about 5 minutes. Stir in the chocolate until it’s melted. Remove from heat and add a small pinch of salt (it sharpens the flavor nicely).
  • While the milk is simmering, whip the heavy cream with sugar using an electric mixer until hard peaks form.
  • Divide the hot chocolate into 4 cups. Top with dollop of prepared whipped cream. If desired, decorate with slivered almonds and chocolate curls. Enjoy!
