It’s definitely starting to look (and feel!) like the holidays here at Feed Your Vitality! Two weeks ago I told you about our new home in the former Lemp Stable…this week I wanted to show you one of my favorite features here, the beautiful antique fireplace and our comfy cozy couches …it may be chilly and rainy outside, but it’s an awesome perk to be able to work here sitting in front of the fire. And it inspired today’s post…how about some low carb, anti-inflammatory Hot Chocolate to help get you warmed up? Here are a couple of different recipes to try! (Note that if you are a big coffee drinker, you may like to try these recipes without the sweetness of the Stevia as a coffee alternative.)
1 Tbs dark cocoa powder
1 Tbs palm sugar or a few drops of Double Chocolate Stevia
2 Tbs coconut milk pinch sea salt 1 cup hot water
Mix together in a mug!
Peppermint Hot Chocolate
3 Tbs Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Peppermint Mocha Stevia (a couple of drops)
1 tsp Cinnamon
Add cocoa to boiling water and stir well, blending in the cinnamon and Peppermint Mocha Stevia. Stir in the coconut milk and vanilla. Pop it in the microwave to warm it up to your desired temperature!
