This quick healthy chocolate is the perfect wintery treat AND holiday gift.

When it’s snowing and chilly out, all I want to do is curl up on my couch
and sip on something creamy and warm.

I love hot chocolate, but traditional hot chocolate is made with tons
of sugar and processed cocoa.  And I don’t even think about reaching
for the diet hot chocolate packets – they’re sweetened
with chemicals and give me a terrible after-taste. PLUS, they don’t even me fill up!

Try my healthified version –
made with un-refined sugar and real cocoa from chocolate beans.

Creamy, sweet AND even a dose of protein so you can drink it in the AM!

Quick, Healthy Hot Chocolate
What You Need:
1 cup almond milk (coconut milk, hemp milk or water)
1 tbs. raw cacao powder
1 tbs. coconut palm sugar
1 tsp. almond flour (optional)
1 tsp. chocolate chips (optional)
2 tsp. shredded coconut (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
1. Heat almond milk in a small sauce pan until light, light boil. (If you don’t have a pan, don’t use a microwave, just use hot water)
2. Mix up all ingredients into a mug and pour almond milk on top and mix
Enjoy!

*Makes 1 serving

For a cute hostess or holiday gift, I love this idea…

Gift giving really stresses me out,
especially when I have a lot of people in my life that I want to thank.
So making healthy, delicious treats
that are easy and super cute is a win win.

Wrap it up the hot chocolate mix in a nice mug + a little plastic treat bag, twine and a set of pretty teaspoons for a creative touch!

Don’t forget a cute note with the recipe on the back.
