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…

Ingredients

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

Method

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!
