As we say goodbye to summer and welcome cold winter days, (I’m still in denial that we’re not in summer anymore) this hot chocolate is the perfect treat.
As I was scouring for hot cocoa mix in my cupboard, I realized that the prepackaged mixes have loads of sugar and not so good ingrediants so I decided to make my own using Cacao. The benefits of Cacao are: reducing stress levels, antioxidants, boosting brain power, packed with iron and magnesium, can help with blood pressure and heart health, the list goes on and on.
I loved topping this drink with Know Brainer marshmallows. It’s UNREAL how these marshmallows have collagen & MCT oil! I try getting as much collagen as I can throughout the day and if I can get it through marshmallows then SIGN ME UP! These marshmallows will be in our Mini box for the month of November.
Healthy Hot Cocao Recipe: combine 1 cup of milk, 2 tbsp of cacao, 1 dash of vanilla extract, 1 pinch of salt, and 1 tbsp of dark chocolate chips into a saucepan. Whisk and heat until chocolate is completely melted through. Add a handful of @know_brainer marshmallows to top it off.
