I've been enjoying this regularly this season and can't wait for you to try it! :)
I found this awesome healthy hot chocolate recipe from Detoxinista last year, and have been enjoying and adapting it this year with some amazing superfood add-ins! I hope you'll enjoy this as a new favorite this year for Christmas-time! Cacao is a superfood— chocolate in it's raw form that is rich in health benefits!! Cocoa is the roasted form of cacao that has very little nutritional benefits. Check out the graphic below, and swap your cocoa for cacao for brain-boosting and antioxidant-rich power! Superfood Hot Chocolate
1 cup organic almond milk (coconut or oat milk works too)
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 Tablespoon pure maple syrup
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 scoop of flavorless collagen powder (protein to help skin, joints + more)
¼ teaspoon of ashwaganda powder (for stress resilience + calm)
pinch of salt
Blend all these ingredients in a blender, then transfer into a saucepan to heat thoroughly, stirring occasionally until hot. If you don't have collagen or ashwaganda yet, feel free to leave those out and still enjoy the basic recipe for now! Those two ingredients are just additional superfood boosts to add in! I've included links to my favorite ingredients that I get online at Thrive Market— you'll save LOTS on natural and organic foods! Use this link to try it out and get 25% off your first order! I recommend buying organic whenever possible to detox your body from harmful pesticides and additives and protect it so it may function optimally.
One last thing that I wanted to share with you today is a super relaxing playlist that I've been listening to constantly! I've listened to this Christmas instrumentals playlist more than any other Christmas music as it provides instant calm and a sweet festive feel! Grab your hot chocolate + queue these tunes for a refreshing time! You deserve it! :)
