Healthy Hot Chocolate

hot chocolate drink: Cup of cocoa with milk on bamboo napkin. Close-up. Stock PhotoIt’s winter time and we are all looking for ways to warm up our bodies. I will always look for something warm, sweet and nourishing that’s healthy and not going to expand on my waistline.

This recipe for a healthier version of hot chocolate is no exception and is adapted from Teresa Cutter, ‘The Healthy Chef”.

Raw cacao is full of nutritional benefits and has been hailed a superfood. I’m am not one to use this word much and even cringe at the sound of it, but this ingredients is a little powerhouse. Raw cacao powder is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the fat. Cacao powder is known to have a higher antioxidant content than cocoa, is also a great source of magnesium and contains iron, copper, calcium, potassium, and zinc.
