Useful tips for Raspberry Hot Cocoa

If you don’t have any raspberries, make it like we did at summer camp.

We used a raspberry tea bag.

Certainly raspberries (fresh or frozen) are best if you can. But in a pinch? Oh yeah. Delicious.

Just don’t put the tea bag in your Vitamix!

Any high-speed blender will do. This is my Vitamix Pro 750

Warning: Contents are very hot. Watch your face for the steam!

Something about a tall white mug makes hot cocoa taste better. That, and enjoying it under a warm blanket.

The Vitamix S30 I was testing successfully made this drink piping hot.
