Incorporate ginger into your diet with this sweet and not-too-spicy hot chocolate with a hint of ginger. Perfect for cold winter nights or as a light dessert.
Heat the milk and water in a medium saucepan. Once it comes to a simmer, reduce heat slightly and whisk in cocoa powder, sea salt and ginger. Whisk vigorously to incorporate. Once the cocoa is hot enough for your liking (about 3-5 minutes), remove from heat and add vanilla extract. Stir once more. Take your ginger candies and rub them along the rims of your serving glasses or mugs. Eat or discard; Pour in hot cocoa and top with coconut cream, whipped cream or marshmallows.
