Do you ever go in phases with your food?

Like, you eat the same snack everyday for two years, and then it fades away and you replace it with another snack for another two years, and the cycle goes on and on.

That’s me to a T.

I ate an apple with peanut butter every single day for, I swear, five years. Now? I don’t remember the last time I ate that for a snack. The same goes for hot chocolate. I remember one Winter I ate it every night as my dessert. It’s so nice to just slowly sip in front of the TV with a blanket wrapped around you. I did that for a good while, and for some reason that faded, too.

BUT, and a big BUT… it’s back. It has made it’s way back into my rotation, and I couldn’t be happier.

I wish so desperately that there was more of a seasonal change here in Florida. Some people are probably thinking I’m crazy right about now, but if you’re a Florida native, you totally understand. It becomes Fall and everybody starts whippin’ out the pumpkin and the scarves and the whole nine. I might have my Bath and Body Works pumpkin candle flickering, and my house may smell like Fall, but when I walk outside I am instantly drenched in sweat.

So, guess what I do?

I turn down the A/C, crank on the fan, get a little chilly, make some Almond Milk Hot Chocolate and grab a blanket. Instantly, it’s Fall!

I love this version of hot chocolate because 1) it’s dairy-free and regular milk can wreak havoc on my stomach, 2) it contains cinnamon which adds an awesome aroma and spicy note to an otherwise overly sweet treat, and 3) I simply feel better knowing I made it myself and it didn’t come out of a package (not sayin’ I don’t enjoy those little hot chocolate packets, though!).

    Okay yuuuumm. I don’t know why I’ve never made hot chocolate with almond milk. This sounds delish. And perfect for the cooler temps we got going on here haha. I totally go through snack phases too except they usually only last for a few weeks/months. Right now I’m all about smoothie bowls and toast with peanut butter and a cut up banana.

    Oh wow! I love a good hot chocolate (also, those mugs are beautiful!) This is so cozy and makes me excited for the endless afternoons spent inside! I would love the idea of having a nice warm heater, but we live above a pizza shop with an oven, meaning our apartment stays hot AF all year round! Good for electricity I guess though!

    I definitely keep packets of hot chocolate at my desk throughout the fall and winter – but now I really want to try making my own at home one night!

    For now, packet at work it is 😉
