The Ultimate Bedtime Snack - A Mocha by the Hearth
The hearth...in my case a soapstone topped wood stove...is perfect for slowly warming the milk.
Making a batch of cocoa separate from the coffee allows for customizing. Some like coffee with a hint of chocolate, some a hint of coffee in their chocolate.
I like a half and half blend.
Don't forget the gelatin in the coffee. Gelatin is high in glysine and "Glycine is recognized as an “inhibitory” neurotransmitter, and promotes natural sleep." http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/gelatin.shtml
Consume your beverage with a little homemade cream of tartar (potassium) capsule and magnesium and you have it made.
