With the plummeting temperatures and snowy start to March reminding us that Spring isn't here just yet, we have been enjoying some nutrient-packed hot treats.
Not your regular hot chocolate, this recipe is vegan and 'choca' with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which make it a powerful anti-inflammatory and immunity booster, as well as an antidepressant. It is also great for your skin and your heart alike. Drinking this feels as good as it tastes!
1 cup dairy-free milk (we use oat milk)
1 tbsp cacao powder
1 tsp 'smooth' almond butter
1 tsp maple syrup (or more, to taste)
Pour the milk into a saucepan, and add the cacao, almond butter and maple. Set over a medium heat, stirring regularly, until it is hot and everything is dissolved. Serve in your favourite mug - taste, and stir in more maple if required.
