How To Make Healthy Hot Chocolate

Healthy hot chocolate is here, and I think it’s even better than the regular stuff.

Enjoying a big mug of hot chocolate is one of the best things about cold weather. While it’s delicious, regular hot chocolate is typically filled with dairy, processed white sugar, and potentially other preservatives and additives.

Here’s my spin to turn regular unhealthy hot chocolate into a healthier treat!

How To Make Healthy Hot Chocolate

Cook time:
Total time:
 
This healthy hot chocolate recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free.
Recipe type: Gluten-free, Dairy-free
Yield: 2
Ingredients
  • 20 ounces unsweetened almond milk (or unsweetened soy milk, any other unsweetened nut milk or unsweetened coconut milk)
  • 2 ½ tablespoons organic unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup (plus more to taste if needed)
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Warm the almond milk on the stove over medium heat until hot but not boiling, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk to combine (1-2 minutes).
  2. Heat another 1-2 minutes and serve immediately.
Notes
As written this recipe makes about two servings, but it's easily doubled or tripled.

    I make hot chocolate with raw cacao and coconut milk. Is coconut a nut? David Wolfe says that raw cacao is the best food that there is. It is great for arterial health and helping to reduce high blood pressure. It is one of the foods highest in anti-oxidants. I re-tweeted this post to my 43,000 followers.

    As far as spelling: Cacao bean (also cocoa bean,[1] often simply cocoa and cacao; Mayan: kakaw; Nahuatl: cacahuatl [ka’kawat͡ɬ]. Cocoa /ˈkoʊ.koʊ/) is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of Theobroma cacao, from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter are extracted. They are the basis of chocolate, as well as many Mesoamerican foods such as mole sauce and tejate.

    The word cocoa is derivative of “cacao”. Cocoa can often also refer to the drink commonly known as hot chocolate;[4] to cocoa powder, the dry powder made by grinding cocoa seeds and removing the cocoa butter from the dark, bitter cocoa solids; or to a mixture of cocoa powder and cocoa butter.[5][6]

    The cacao tree is native to the Americas. It may have originated in the foothills of the Andes in the Amazon and Orinoco basins of South America, current day Venezuela, where today, examples of wild cacao still can be found.
