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!

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.
Don’t forget a cute note with the recipe on the back.
Happy, healthy and sweet NEW year.
be sweet. be warm. be well.
