This post contains a recipe for the perfect superfood hot chocolate!
There’s something about the holiday season that makes you want to snuggle up with a warm cup of chocolate goodness! This superfood hot chocolate recipe will not disappoint.
Most store-bought hot chocolate mixes are rife with processed sugar and other ingredients that are added for shelf stability. So, you probably experience a sugar rush followed by a crash after indulging in one of these (not to mention you increase the inflammation in your body).
The cool thing about a superfood drink is that you don’t sacrifice flavor but you increase the health benefits tenfold. Sign. Me. Up! I also personally feel like the flavors are way more complex, interesting and satisfying.
I have made this drink many different ways with many different add ins, but consider this recipe a great foundation for the superfood hot chocolate of your dreams.
