Recipe: Healthy Hot Chocolate

Food Mood Girl Lindsey Smith of Brookline shares a sweet recipe for hot chocolate that will warm you up without getting you down.

As the winter weather kicks in, our bodies start to naturally crave warmer foods and drinks, such as hot soups and warming teas and ciders.

While I am a fan of tea and cider, I also love some hot chocolate in the holiday mix. However, most store-bought hot chocolate is filled with chemicals, additives, and tons of sugar.

So give your body a break and instead, make your own hot chocolate to ensure your ingredients are few and the taste is superb!


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other milk preference)
  • 1 Tbsp. raw cacao
  • 1-2 Tbsp. raw honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


1. In a small saucepan, combine almond milk and raw cacao and bring to small boil.

2. Reduce heat and use a whisk to turn to almond milk a chocolate color.

3. Keep whisking and add in honey and vanilla to sweeten.

4. Remove from heat, pour into mug, and enjoy!
