4tablespoonscocoa powder(for this recipe, I prefer the Nestle brand or a higher end brand such as Ghirardelli. The Hershey’s brand sometimes has a tad bit of a bitter aftertaste)
Add all ingredients except the water into a blender (a food processor will also work).
Add 2 tablespoons of the water.
Blend until smooth, adding the rest of the water by single tablespoons, as needed, to reach your desired consistency. I also like to stop the blender a few times to scrape down the sides for an even puree.
Taste and add more water and/or syrup as desired.
Some ideas to serve with it are: strawberries, pretzels, banana, pineapple, and apple slices.
