My Fave Hot Chocolate Recipe

Christmas is a fun time of the year, but it’s filled with sugar, food coloring, artificial flavors, and a lot more nasties than it needs to be. Just because we want to have fun does not mean we have to trash our health. My favorite hot chocolate recipe is below. The best part about this recipe is it’s so simple. Wellness doesn’t have to be hard. 

Here is a youtube video where I discuss other Christmas treats and alternatives.
