It's November, and time for hot chocolate!

It's November 2nd. I'm calling it Christmas time. Crazy? I prefer the term enthusiastic.

Plus over half the stores at the mall had Christmas stuff out today. HOW do they get it out so fast???

But most importantly, this build up to Christmas means hot chocolate. Lots of hot chocolate. Plus if it's healthy, you can drink more :D
Here's my favorite easy recipe:
 Ingredients:
- 2 cups skim milk (or soy, rice, coconut, almond)
- 2 rounded teaspoons 70% dark chocolate cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons healthy sweetener, adjusted to taste (stevia, maple syrup, agave, raw cane sugar)

1. Heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat until steaming, not boiling
2. Add cocoa powder and sweetener and whisk to combine.
3. Pour into favorite mugs

Please note:

Corny Christmas mugs greatly increase the enjoyment factor:
You can spice up your frothy beverage with:

Cinnamon 

Nutmeg

Vanilla

Mint


Happy living,
