Rich & Creamy Vegan Hot Chocolate

Everyone loves a warm mug of Hot Chocolate on a cold Winter’s day and it doesn’t have to be unhealthy either!  Our recipe is made with raw organic cacao powder, which  is much better for you than over-processed cocoa powder. It is a rich source of magnesium and iron as well as antioxidant flavanols and polyphenols. The phytochemicals theobromine, phenylethylamine and anandamine act as a mood booster and help support mental well-being.  Plus the almond milk and nut butters give you heart healthy fats, and a good  dose of vitamin E, which is wonderful  for glowing skin and healthy hair.

Hot Chocolate


250ml Almond Milk (store-bought or homemade)
