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!

    I just made this for myself – roughly half the ingredients (I didn’t measure precisely), using cacao and a little shake of cinnamon. It’s the perfect balance of rich and decadent, perfect for when you’re craving chocolate!

  2. Kim says:

    So after all that, can cacao be used instead of cocoa?? Same taste? I guess i can do my own experiment : )

  3. Kathy says:

    Thank you for the recipe. I made it with dark cocoa and it was delicious!!!

  4. Chuck says:

    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.

  5. Chuck says:

    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.

  6. Pam Howard says:

    Yum! This sounds delicious! My kids are huge hot cocoa fans, add a bowl of popcorn and you have their favorite after school snack!
