This healthy hot chocolate is the REAL deal! Comparable in taste to those powder packets you buy at the store, except way healthier. Cocoa powder and maple syrup give this recipe a big dose of good-for-you antioxidants and minerals.
I started making this homemade healthy hot chocolate to warm me up after a long day of skiing. And once I started, I couldn’t stop. This hot chocolate quickly went from aprés ski to everyday. I couldn’t get enough of it. I still can’t get enough of it!! You know, I’m not a huge fan of the winter. But I’m honestly hoping this cold weather hangs on a little longer so I can continue to enjoy this cozy beverage. Even when the weather gets warm, I’ll probably still be drinking this hot chocolate.
What You Need To Make Healthy Hot Chocolate
Almond Milk – You can use any non-dairy milk you’d like! And if you’re not dairy-free, you can use regular milk instead.
Cocoa Powder – Make sure you use unsweetened cocoa powder. Cacao powder works too, and also serves as a great boost of healthy antioxidants!
Maple Syrup – Maple syrup is one of my favorite refined sugar-free sweeteners. It also contains a ton of antioxidant and a good dose of minerals. If you don’t have any maple syrup, you can use coconut sugar or honey instead.
