Healthy Hot Chocolate – Warm, Sweet and Nourishing


Healthy Hot Chocolate - Warm, Sweet and Nourishing Healthy Hot Chocolate

Craving for something warm, sweet and nourishing?

There is no doubt that pure raw cocoa is super healthy. Cocoa contains beta-carotene, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, chromium and in particular magnesium and many consider it  a super- food.

Hot Chocolate has ever since been one of the favorite drinks. Unfortunately, the pre-made chocolate drinks you can buy in supermarkets are packed with sugar and contain super unhealthy homogenized/ pasteurized milk along with quite a few dangerous additives.

And I know well how hard it is to say NO when your little one takes and says: – Mom, can I have one, please?

Plus I often crave one too 🙂

Well here is a healthy alternative, takes 5 minutes to make it and both you and your kids will love it!
