Organic Hot Cacao Chocolate Drink

Hot chocolate. It’s like liquid gold.

I made this hot chocolate as part of a Christmas gift for my Mum and Nana, because not only do they share my genetics, but also my love for chocolate!

Hot Cacao

I made the recipe with raw cacao, which is basically cocoa on steroids and so delicious! It’s  full of flavonoids, which act as natural antioxidants (it has up to three times the antioxidant content of green tea!).

If you’ve ever picked up a box of hot chocolate, you’ll find that they are often full of all sorts of additional ingredients! This recipe is as simple as two ingredients (three, if you add a pinch of salt!). Hope you enjoy!
