Okay this literally is my fav! I drink it cold, I drink it hot- I drink it daily! This is one thing I knew I couldn’t give up years ago when I was making all of my healthy changes.
It it was a cold Halloween night and I was left alone to hand out the treats. My husband was a good sport to walk the kids around the neighborhood. I decided I really needed hot chocolate- I was being a good girl and all with not eating any candy.
I brainstormed for a few minutes then got my ingredients out and started blending. I pretty much danced around the kitchen when I tasted my creation. HEALTHY hot chocolate! What?!!! Yes for real. Tastes better than regular hot chocolate and doesn’t leave my belly aching and my sugar levels spiked.
Did you know chocolate is full of vitamins and minerals? Of course you have to choose the unprocessed, wholesome cacao.
It’s a treat, snack, breakfast, dinner, lunch- pretty much anytime food. And good for you!
Happy food. Tastes good and is good for you.
