Hot Cocoa Recipe
Homemade Hot Cocoa
Our 3-ingredient homemade hot cocoa is perfect for minimalists and chocolate lovers. Hot cocoa mixes, while convenient, just aren’t as tasty or nutritious as making one yourself. This simple recipe is made from cleaner ingredients than your average hot cocoa mix. Take your milk of choice and warm it over medium heat in a saucepan. Combine with cocoa powder and maple syrup for delicate sweetness and you’re done. It’s hard to go back to the mix once you’ve tried this easy homemade hot chocolate!
Warm milk in a saucepan for 1-2 minutes until warm to the touch.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and whisk until combined.
Pour and enjoy with your favorite garnish.
You can substitute your milk of choice. Regular milk is going to give the most “classic” hot chocolate flavor but this can easily be adapted to fit a plant-based lifestyle. Choosing low-fat, non-fat (skim), or a milk alternative can significantly reduce the calories in this recipe.
Food is for physical wellness, and pharmaceutical products are for mental health conditions—that’s where most of us land when it comes to nutrition psychiatry.
Nutrition is understandably not priority one in the chaotic moments immediately following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), but as soon as the patient is stable, nutrition therapy shares center stage with other key tenets of TBI rehabilitation.
Normally, we’re content to bounce around new and/or controversial theories on nutritional concepts all day, but every so often, we have the luxury of seeing in black and white.
This may seem like a fun-killing exercise at first, but we’re not interested in coddling or pandering to our readers, so let’s get the harsh reality out of the way: most of us haven’t earned the right to binge on vacation.
