Orange Hot Cocoa

1 c. milk 
1 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla
1 dash cinnamon (approx. 1/8 tsp.)
1/4 tsp. Blood Orange Olive Oil

Pour the milk in a small saucepan over a low heat (it’s important to keep the heat low so the milk doesn't scald). Add the cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Whisk together as the mixture warms (approximately 5-10 minutes). The cocoa powder takes a little bit of time to get mixed in with the milk so be patient! When the mixture is at a temperature you like, add the olive oil and continue to cook over a low heat for another minute or two. Pour into a mug and enjoy! Garnish with a slice of orange if desired.

Note: As you’re drinking the cocoa you made need to stir as the unsweetened cocoa powder doesn't always stay mixed.
