  • 2 cups Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Tahitian Vanilla Extract
  • 5 Tbsp Honey
  • 3 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 tsp Grass-Fed Gelatin
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt


  • Combine the cocoa powder, pumpkin pie spice, gelatin, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the almond milk and vanilla over medium heat until scalding (not quite boiling).
  • When the milk is heated, add the honey and whisk until combined.
  • While whisking constantly, slowly pour in the cocoa powder mixture. Never stop whisking. If you do, you'll wind up with grody lumps.
  • After you've poured in all the cocoa powder, continue whisking just a little longer to ensure it's all mixed and no lumps remain.
  • Serve hot, topped with paleo marshmallows.
