Day 10 – 3 Healthier Hot Chocolate Recipes

Winter time is my favorite time of year to enjoy hot drinks, especially hot chocolate!  There is nothing more comforting than snuggling up with a nice hot cup of cocoa when it is chilly outside.  Being from California, it doesn’t get super chilly but for those few days when it is a little cold I love to make these drinks.  Today I thought I would share a regular recipe along with two other flavors that are perfect for this time of year.  These recipes are a “healthier” take on hot chocolate.  These recipes can definitely be altered to make them sweeter, more chocolatey, using the milk of your choice, or even using a different sweetener.  For all of you coffee lovers, you can definitely add coffee to any of these recipes.  So turn on your fireplace, and get your snuggly blanket ready because we are about to make some warm chocolatey goodness.
