What a better drink to enjoy on a wintery afternoon than hot chocolate? Well I would say a healthier option of hot chocolate, right? If you are in a pinch you can substitute cocoa powder, but definitely give cacao powder a try, as it contains more good-for-you nutrients than processed cocoa.
One of my clients just made this last week, and she said it was absolutely amazing! Yes, how cool is that? My clients can drink hot chocolate and stay on track, no problem!
