    Mexican Hot Chocolate | stupideasypaleo.comToday is the 5th anniversary of my 29th birthday, so I’m kicking up my heels a bit with this Paleo version of a classic favorite. Now, before you go all, “But what about your philosophy of not Paleo-ifying treats?!” rebuttal, let me assure you: this one is completely sugar free and is meant to be a treat, not your everyday drink of choice. If you don’t like the idea of adding the spices, you can leave them out and certainly, if you have homemade almond milk or something else yummy kicking around, you can substitute that instead. This one’s pretty rich and is meant to be sipped and savored.
