Minty Hot Cocoa

Minty Hot Cocoa
Make this warm cup of cocoa for a rich, satisfying treat that is lower in fat and sugar than traditional hot cocoa.  It is also dairy free and has no refined sugar.  To change up the flavor, skip the mint tea and add a dash of vanilla or almond extract.  Substitute a different non dairy milk or dairy milk for the almond milk if you like.
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 peppermint  tea bag
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon honey
pinch of sea salt
Warm the almond milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat with the tea bag.  Add the cocoa powder, honey, and sea salt, and stir to warm evenly.  Do not boil.  When drink is hot, remove the tea bag and serve in a mug.  Make 1 serving.
