Are you ready for the creamiest, most decadent hot chocolate recipe? My guess is, YES! Not only is this recipe insanely yummy, it delivers a power packed punch of nutrition! Did you know that chocolate in it’s raw form is a super food? This recipe is a win-win and I’ve been excited to share it! My whole family has been enjoying it and I can feel good that I’m not loading them down with synthetic ingredients and too much sugar.
Ok, enough talking, let’s get right into it!
Healthy Hot Chocolate
1 cup almond milk or cashew milk (I like almond)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
***1/8 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
*Cocoa powder will work but it’s not beneficial to your health like raw cacao.
**Regular cinnamon will work fine. I’m learning that ceylon cinnamon is where the health benefits are at and I’m starting to use it instead of cinnamon in the future. I’ve heard it’s sweeter then the regular cinnamon.
***Regular salt works fine too!
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for 15-30 seconds.
- Pour into a mug and heat for 1-1.5 minutes.
- Top with cinnamon (or marshmallows!)
I LOVE this recipe! It’s not too sweet but so satisfying when I’m in need of a cozy drink. You don’t have to use a blender but the blender is what gives it all the creamy froth!
I have aspirations of making my own marshmallows but haven’t ventured there yet. Marshamallows contain gelatin and can actually be semi healthy-the sugar screws them up but by making your own you can omit a lot of dodgy ingredients. Check out THIS recipe if you’re interested.
