Having given up coffee and anything with caffeine in it, I have taken it upon myself to rely on food sources to keep my energy up throughout the course of the day. That means keeping a balance between the carbs, proteins and other nutrients in a delicate balance. However, reality is that the balance may not occur every single day. In my quest for other healthy sources I thought about consuming hot chocolate and herbal tea. In looking through the options for hot chocolate there aren’t many healthy options.
In my quest I found the almost perfect solution and it is using:
- Chocolate bar – 10 ounces
- Almond milk – I cup
- Sugar free pancake syrup – 2 tspns or as needed
As seen in the images above mix the almond milk, chocolate bar and the syrup and let it boil.
Once it has boiled pour in a glass and enjoy!
Do yo have any hot chocolate recipes that are healthy?
