Did you know that…

Raw cacao contains antioxidants and minerals such as magnesium, copper, and iron? That's why raw cacao powder is a much healthier choice over chocolate. Cause besides cacao, chocolate bars are mostly full of sugar, fats, and sweeteners. They create flavor, but also make you crave to keep snacking. With raw cacao powder, you've no worries about that!

There is plenty of variation with Healthy Hot Chocolate. Add a mashed half banana and a pinch of cinnamon, for example. Or choose light coconut milk instead of (almond) milk.
