Be Well Kitchen: Healthy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Hot Chocolate

By Be Well Health Coach Amanda Carney

Who doesn’t love a warming cup of hot chocolate this time of year!?  Unfortunately, most hot chocolate drinks and powders come loaded with ugly sugars, toxic preservatives and artificial ingredients – all things that we do not want to be filling our bodies with.

Not to worry!  With this warm cup of health boosting ingredients, you can have your hot chocolate without compromising your health! Unlike most hot chocolates, this nutrient-dense drink is filled with tons of health promoting factors, such as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, adaptogens (which help the body adapt to stresses) and fiber!

For One Serving … You Will Need

  • 1 cup unsweetened nut milk (have you tried our delicious homemade cashew milk recipe?)
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of raw honey


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until mixed.

Then, place in a pot over low heat and warm to desired heat

Sip in the chilly outdoors and enjoy!

*In the warmer months, you can blend this drink with ice for a refreshing chocolate smoothie, and for a more filling snack, you can use our Cleanse Shakes.
