This time of year I start craving hot chocolate.  Something warm, sweet and nourishing that’s healthy.

Buy good quality cocoa or cacao powder.

Cocoa contains beta-carotene, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, chromium and in particular magnesium that can help with bone mineralization, muscle contraction and immune function.

Serves 2


  • 2.5 cups almond or coconut milk
  • 1 heaped tablespoon cacao powder
  •  pinch of ground cinnamon powder
  •  1 teaspoon honey
  •  pinch sea salt


  1. Combine all ingredients except for honey into a small pot.
  2.  Heat gently.
  3.  Pour into serving cups and enjoy.
