Healthy Hot Chocolate
There’s only one thing better than a cup of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day — healthy hot chocolate!
Hot chocolate is something many people, especially children, enjoy — especially on a cold day after school! But there are a number of things wrong with hot chocolate: (1) it contains cow milk and (2) it contains chocolate and (3) often contains refined sugar, and there is something wrong with them all.
Cow milk is extremely mucous forming, chocolate contains theobromine (a form of caffeine), and refined sugar compromises the immune system. Here’s a better solution!
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Heat in sauce pan on low heat setting until warm.
- Make sure you don’t let it boil, or you will destroy the enzymes, thus destroying its life force and some of its nutrients.
