Healthy Hot Chocolate for Winter Days

There is nothing quite like a nice, steaming cup of hot chocolate on a winters day to warm up your bones. The luxurious taste and feel of drinking hot chocolate that then warms your whole body is exquisite! It is thick, silky and rich tasting!

I think what makes a cup of hot chocolate so satisfying is that there are so many health benefits from drinking it. Skip those store-bought hot chocolate packs, and make your own cup of cocoa using real cacao powder; the higher the cacao content and less processed the cocoa, the greater the antioxidants.

This hot chocolate is thick, creamy and so satisfying. It gives you that warm glow and because of the ingredients used it fills you up too!

Ingredients:

  • Handful of raw cashew nuts
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 heaped tbsp oats
  • 1 heaped tbsp cacao powder
  • Coconut milk

Method:

Blitz the cashew nuts and cacao nibs in a blender with a little of the coconut milk until it forms a paste like texture.

Add in the rest of the ingredients.

Heat the coconut milk and then add it into the blender (there is no guidance on the milk, just use what you feel is right for you. I like my hot chocolate thick so i didn’t use too much)

Blitz until combined and creamy

You can add more milk if it is too thick or more oats/banana if you need it to be thicker.

To give the hot chocolate that extra winter taste add in some cinnamon and top with some squirty cream.

Enjoy 🙂
