Sifted Cacao + Coconut Sugar & Almond Milk (paleo, low-carb, and low-glycemic!)

I love this recipe because it's;
and low-glycemic!

We've been using this recipe at Sifted Tea holiday events and it's a hit!! Tastes like hot chocolate, smells like hot chocolate, doesn't FEEL like hot chocolate because you'll be LIGHTER & LESS BLOATED after drinking this (Cacao Tea is a natural anti-inflammatory beverage, and acts as a slight diuretic). No acidic burn, and no belly bloat from far too much sugar and artificial ingredients. We've got (3) ingredients for you:

Sifted Cacao Tea (buy here)

Unsweetened Almond Milk (or milk beverage of choice)

Coconut Sugar (I like Big Tree Farms organic)

1) BOIL water to a minimum of 195 degrees. Anywhere 190-212 is great for Sifted Tea.

2) steep tea: we do a minimum of 5 minutes --- ratio is 1 heaping tsp per 1 cup water, or 1 heaping tbsp per 'tea pot' or french press (3-4 cups water). Use a metal tea infuser, a cup with an infuser filter in it, a pour over, stovetop percolator, french press, or loose oversized tea bag.

3) add almond milk: for one serving I do just a splash! Use a nespresso frother if you like foamy milk, or a foaming wand.

4) add coconut sugar: 1 tsp goes a long way. I like to sprinkle it on top for a foamy latte experience, or stir it in for a 'sipping hot chocolate' that'll leave you proud and happy. :) 

I like to use coconut sugar because it's unrefined, and has a low glycemic index so you won't feel that crash after eating it (who wants to give this to their kids instead of the white table sugar?! *hand raised*). It slows down how fast your body is absorbing the glucose.

FYI, your ratio to brew Sifted Tea is the same as any other tea - just be sure to use BOILING HOT water, 190-212 degrees. And use a method that allows the tea to breathe - teapot with a metal strainer, a tea ball or infuser, french press (plunge it a few times to aggitate the husks!). The list goes on.
RATIO: is 1 heaping tsp per 1 cup water, or 1 heaping tbsp per 'tea pot' or french press (3-4 cups water)
