Today was Day #4 of Chocolate and Chai Theme Week. And I'm switching from chai flavored truffles to drinking chocolate from Allegro Coffee Company today. Allegro's Organic Indian Spice 30 mix contains "...milk chocolate blended with the ginger and cardamom of classic chai." This flavor is one of several flavored drinking chocolates offered by the company.
I used hot, low-fat (cow's) milk as a base for my hot drinking chocolate; however, I'm sure one could experiment with other milks. This mix does contain dairy -- in the form of organic Fair Trade Certified milk chocolate, and organic milk powder.
