1

Mix the almonds and cocoa powder in a large mug until well combined.

2

Add the rest of the ingredients in order and a tiny pinch of salt, and mix well.

Heat for 50-60secs (watching so it doesn’t rise above the lip of the mug). If it starts to rise to the top, pause the microwave, let it deflate and continue. Heat for a total of two minutes. It should stop rising after the first minute but continue to watch for the final minute.
