Heart Healthy Hot Chocolate
A cup of quality hot cocoa can do wonders. It’ll give you a dose of calming magnesium, heart protective antioxidants and some feel good “love chemicals” too ( namely phenylethylamine and tryptophan). Revel in the chocolatey bliss…
1 cup almond milk (for added decadence add in a little coconut milk)
2 Tbsp cocoa powder (I like Camino’s natural cocoa)
1-2 Tbsp coconut sugar or xylitol
Heat milk in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk in cocoa powder and sweetener of choice until fully dissolved and at desired temperature. Serve in your favourite mug and enjoy!
