Evening! I can’t resist posting this on a cold, blustery night when warming the cockles is the order of the day.
If you don’t want to load up on calories or send your blood sugar into overdrive, but need a soothing, warming, delicious drink, pop a spoonful of cocoa powder (organic, ideally but not essential – and NOT one of the ready-made ‘hot-chocolate’ drinks) into a mug. Pour boiled water into the mug, then sweeten with Agave nectar if you need to.
Sip and enjoy your antioxidant-packed, low cal, yet satisfyingly chocolatey drink. It’s particularly good when you’re flagging mid-afternoon and craving something sweet but are seeking a healthier alternative!
