Snow Day Healthy Hot Chocolate
Hot Chocolate + Snow Just Go Together
But it doesn't have to be an unhealthy treat - it can actually become a nourishing, yet comforting and indulgent treat. Here's our go-to healthy hot chocolate recipe. Instead of being a sugary drink, it's filled with micro-nutrients + minerals our bodies need. Raw cacao is a superfood that is full of magnesium and calcium (more than cow's milk), contains 40x the antioxidant power of blueberries, excellent plant-based source of iron, mood booster, and a decadent treat. Couple that with dairy-free and sugar-free milk and low-glycemic sweetener and you've got a healthy version of a classic dessert.
