Have you ever had pink hot chocolate? It's pretty awesome.

Ingredients:
3 cups of milk (26 fl. ounces)
100 g white chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup strawberry jam


Directions: Blend the jam and half the milk in a blender until smooth.  Melt the white chocolate into a saucepan with the remaining milk on medium-low heat. Stir in vanilla extract and the blended jam/milk. Pour into mugs and enjoy the light pink-y goodness!


Substitutions:
  • Use an immersion blender and blend the jam into the milk after the white chocolate has been melted in
  • Use vanilla flavoured soy milk instead of regular milk; omit additional vanilla
