'Tis the season for Hot Cacao! During the holiday season, our sugar intake goes way up with all the goodies we consume. When we consume too much sugar, our bodies have a harder time fighting off sickness. We see a lot of sickness this time of year. BUT, we still want to be able to enjoy the holiday season, we shouldn't have to deprive ourselves of treats, but there is a healthy way to make almost anything these days.
I decided to make a heathy hot cacao, and my family LOVES it. Instead of Milk and tons of sugar, I chose 3 ingredients that would be allergy friendly, AND beneficial to our bodies. Coconut milk( or almond), Cacao powder, and raw honey.
Benefits of cacao:
-loaded wit antioxidents
