Heat milk on the stovetop (or microwave) until it comes to a simmer.
Add Calm Cacao Superblend, peppermint extract and sweetener (if using) and blend with a handheld frother. *If using dates and/or chocolate: add all ingredients to a blender and blend until completely smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness and mintiness if needed.
Pour hot chocolate into a mug, add toppings if using, and enjoy!
