Holiday Peppermint Hot Cocoa Directions

1) Blend all ingredients other than Minty Marshmallows in Vitamix or other high-speed blender until ingredients are thoroughly combined and hot cocoa is steaming when blender lid is removed, about 3 minutes. 
2) Adjust stevia to taste. 
3) If your blender doesn’t heat hot cocoa sufficiently, transfer to a saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat.
4) Simmer for 2-3 minutes, turn off heat and pour hot cocoa into two mugs.
5) Top hot cocoa with Minty Marshmallows, if desired.
6) Serve and enjoy!
