1 tbsp maple syrup (or a couple of drops of stevia)
1 tbsp coconut butter, for extra creaminess

On top:

Oat Whip or Coconut whipped cream (I used Kaslink Aito Kaura Vispi)
1 tsp beet powder or pink pitaya powder

Measure the coconut milk oat milk, maple syrup, coconut butter and spices into a pot and bring to boil while stirring constantly. Take off the heat and taste the mixture. Add some of the spices or sweetness, if desired. Prepare the whipped cream in a bowl. Stir in some beet powder to give it a nice pink color. Divide the white hot chocolate into two mugs and top with whipped cream, cinnamon and grated cocoa butter. Serve & enjoy while hot.
