GFCF Hot Chocolate and other Winter Break Wonders

Well, it finally snowed in Michigan, and here we are in New York.  Luckily (?) there is some snow here, and we had the opportunity to kick Isaac outside and let him run around in it today.  He came in to request hot chocolate.  It's his Pavlovian response to playing in the snow.  Grandma Chambers just happened to have some cocoa powder for baking in the cupboard, and I just happened to over pack for our travels.  So Isaac got his hot chocolate, and I got to take a million cute pictures of him modeling his chocolate mustache.

GFCF Hot Chocolate:
Fill normal sized mug with Original Coconut Milk (I only fill it half-way for Isaac)
Heat in Microwave for about a minute.
Stir in a heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder (the kind for baking)
Stir in a small squirt of Agave Nectar.
Double everything I just said if you want a full mug.
Tada! GFCF low-sugar hot chocolate.

In other news, we've had a pretty good visit here in NY.  Isaac finally warmed up to my Aunt Sue- who until recently he would never look at, never mind play with for a whole evening.  Everyone was surprised and happy with his progress, but best of all memories were made.
