Description

The Pure Hot Chocolate Experience

This Unsweetened Hot Chocolate powder can be used to make the original Aztec recipe with water, cinnamon, chili and honey. Or just add to hot milk and sweeten as you like to make thick, creamy hot chocolate the delicious European way.

Chocolate is actually based on the Meso American word Xocolaltl (shoko' lot-all) which is an onomatopoeia (word that sounds like the meaning) of making the chocolate drink. Xoco (means bitter but also sounds like the frothing of the chocolate drink using a molinillo) and latl (means water but also sounds like pouring of water from an earthenware vase or olla pot). So the word chocolate is based on the words the Aztecs used for making their glorious hot chocolate.

How To Make Hot Chocolate with Cocoa Powder

California style hot cocoa recipe: Whisk 4 Heaping Tablespoons Hot Chocolate with 8 ounces of hot almond milk and 2 Tablespoon honey. Whisk to homogenize with liquid and froth. 

Our gourmet hot chocolate is unsweetened and made from extra dark cacao. It has a light red hue when frothed due to the cocoa bean type.

Ingredient: Organic Cocoa

Made from exotic cacao we have sourced Fair Trade USA - Ethical Trade.

Hot chocolate options:

Our unsweetened dark hot chocolate is made from pure ground cacao solid chocolate with no sugar - make a slurry and then flavor with honey and spice. Serve frothy by whisking or shaking. It can be stored in the refrigerator once made (shake till frothy and pour).
 
We recommend using a mix of 1:1 cacao powder to raw brown sugar. Use a mix of 3 TBSP per 4 oz of milk. Serve frothy. It will take mixing to get the powder to suspend in the milk (this is due to raw cocoa butter). It tastes wonderful and is a real delight.

Cacao Powder is the same as Cocoa Powder.

Both are common names for the concentrated powder made from cold pressing cacao nibs extracting raw cocoa butter and leaving a low fat brown fiber cake that is ground into powder. This powder is known under FDA terminology as natural process cocoa and in the gourmet chocolate world as Cacao Powder. The powder is a concentrated food made exclusively from the seeds of the cocoa tree. it is sugar free, vegan and has a strong flavor due to the alkaloids and antioxidant value.

Santa Barbara Chocolate Cacao Powder is Natural Process (meaning it is not alkalized and is just pressed cacao nibs ground to a powder). The cacao benefits include no extra processing, 100% organic, Fine Superior cacao flavor and low fat but still full of all the healthy nutrition you would expect from a raw superfood.

Flavor profile: Fine Flavor Cocoa is floral and bitter dark with prominent chocolate notes, mild fruitiness and slight acidity.
