Raspberry Basil Hot Chocolate

Prep Time5 mins
Total Time5 mins
Servings: 1 mug


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup basil
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup canned raspberries and juice


  • Place chocolate and raspberries with juice in a heatproof bowl (preferably with a spout), and set aside.
  • Combine milk and basil in a small saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, whisking frequently. (The faster you whisk, the foamier the milk will be.)
  • When the milk mixture looks like it's about to boil, remove from heat and pour through a strainer into bowl over the chocolate, catching the basil in the strainer.
  • Let sit about 1 minute, then whisk until completely smooth.
  • Pour into a blender and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into a mug and enjoy.
