A Simple and Delicious Hot Chocolate Treat for Earth Day

Earth Day is Sunday, April 22 and this year’s campaign is to End Plastic Pollution! 300 million tons of fossil fuel based plastic is sold each year and 90% of that is thrown away, destroying our food, our water and our health.

Here is a recipe for a delicious, vegan drink made with earth-friendly ingredients. This chocolate treat will give you energy for whatever planet-saving project you are doing this Earth Day, like picking up plastic trash and recycling!

“Save the Earth” Hot Chocolate

1.5 Tsp. Organic Dutch Cocoa Powder
Our Agostoni brand cocoa powder comes from organic cocoa farms that don’t use toxic pesticides, which harm pollinators and lots of other living things.

1 Tsp. Organic Cane Sugar
Organic cane sugar from the Native Green Cane Project in Brazil has 23 x more biodiversity than conventional sugar cane farms in the same region.

2 Tbsp. Organic Coconut Milk Powder
Sustainable organic coconut plantations avoid use of synthetic fertilizers that would have polluted soil and water.

Directions: Add ingredients to your favorite mug (not a disposable cup!). Mix ingredients with a fork or spoon. Add 8 oz. hot water and stir.

Power up and get out there and take care of our earth!
