I’ve wanted to create a white hot chocolate recipe for just about as long as I can remember. When bought at a coffee shop or elsewhere, white hot chocolate is generally one of those uber sweet drinks made with far more sugar than my system can handle.


After creating a bunch of Paleo Christmas Cookie recipes this past month I’m all baked out and I’m ready for easy dessert recipes that are also not quite as sweet. When I make white hot chocolate for myself I omit the honey from the recipe; for the boys I leave it, as they want their treats sweet. Making homemade hot chocolate is so easy that even my boys have been doing it for years; another one of our favorite recipes is for Mexican hot chocolate –it will seriously warm you up with its spicy goodness.


ingredients
1 cup water
1 ¼ cups coconut milk
1 ½ ounces raw cacao butter
1 tablespoon honey
8 drops vanilla crème stevia
pinch celtic sea salt


directions

  1. In a medium saucepan combine all ingredients
  2. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer
  3. Continue simmering until cacao butter is melted
  4. In very small batches, blend in a Vitamix
  5. Serve frothy whipped white hot chocolate in mugs
  6. Enjoy

Makes 2 servings

  • Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.
