1/4 tsp sea salt or to taste
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of powdered ginger
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Coffee/Latte Variation: Using the above recipe omit the cocoa powder and 1 cup of the milk, add 1 cup of fresh brewed coffee to enjoy a healthier version of the popular pumpkin spice latte.
To prepare ahead: If you want to have this special drink ready to go for later, simply combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor, blend until well combined, and store in a covered mason jar in the fridge. (Use mixture within 2 days) Then just heat and serve for a relaxing, healthful treat
