There is something about a cup of hot chocolate that makes winter and Christmas THAT much better, don’t you think? Especially when it is cold outside (which often it isn’t in Texas,) a cup of homemade hot cocoa is just comforting. Our two youngest boys really love hot chocolate, so I have made quite a few recipes over the years. I even love to make Spicy Hot Cocoa for those who love a spicy kick or when I have a cough or sore throat.
I recently discovered THE quickest and easiest way to make a delicious cup of coffee AND homemade whipped cream, and if you own a Vitamix, things are about to get real here. The Vitamix Aer Disc Container will make a HOT cup of cocoa in less than 10 minutes, then you can make cold whipped cream, too, and serve it all together in a matter of minutes.
Vitamix Aer Disc Container
For use with all full-size Vitamix blenders, the Aer Disc Container does all of this:
- whipping, muddling, foaming, and emulsifying
- extracts essential oils from herbs and juice from fruit while preserving some of the texture of those ingredients
- Mix drinks without crushing the ice
- BPA-free Tritan container rotates ingredients for faster, more consistent blending
- container and lid are self-cleaning and dishwasher-safe
- produces consistently creamy emulsions, light culinary foams, and stiff whipped creams
