A hot cup of *clean* Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Though they're a regular occurrence, I'm always a tad hesitant to post my - thoroughly experimental - food and drink concoctions, largely for fear of being the only one they'll appeal to (in turn exposing my partiality for offbeat, even controversial culinary combinations). However, this latest little brew has attracted quite the curiosity amongst my friends, leading me to think it might just take the fancy of people other than my peculiar self. 

So, my loves, I present to you a dairy-free, gluten-free, and indeed refined sugar-free liquid variant on the Hershey's classic: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Naturally, you can mix up the ingredients according to your own dietary requirements (or lack thereof), but these are the go-to components of what has become one of my staple warming winter beverages.

You will need:

> 1 tbsp peanut butter - ideally the 100% peanuts kind (Meridian is great)
> 1 tbsp raw cacao powder (I use Bioglan)
> a few generous drops of Sweet Freedom Choc Shot (dreamy liquid hot chocolate made of fruit extracts and cocoa)
> milk of your choice (soya works well, thanks to its slight sweetness)


1) Heat milk in pan.
2) Once the milk begins to warm up, add the peanut butter, cacao powder, and Sweet Freedom Choc Shot.
3) Stir constantly, until piping hot. 
4) Pour into a nice big mug. Think happy thoughts. Enjoy.
