Sugar-free, Dairy-free, Gluten-free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

In attempt to fight off a sore throat, I stopped and bought some peppermint tea on my way home. I’m not a big fan of teas, even one as plain as peppermint tea, so I started thinking of a way to doctor it up.

Since I’m also on a no-sugar no-dairy no-gluten fast right now, it requires being content with simple ingredients in order to enjoy something indulgent. Well, this one really hit the spot!

I created this peppermint hot chocolate by adding unsweetened cocoa to the steeped peppermint tea. Then I added a fair amount of agave nectar to taste. I topped off with a splash of unsweetened soy milk. Okay, I have to admit that the marshmallows aren’t sugar free but if it makes it any better, I didn’t eat them!!

To others I’m sure this drink would be bland in comparison to Starbuck’s, but for me and my special diet, it was yummo!
