So I figured I should post this before Spring comes for good and no-one wants to drink hot cocoa anymore. This has been one of my favorite comfort drinks this winter. It's delicious, but also has a lot of healthy ingredients that will keep you healthy while everyone around you is sick! The main ingredient I am talking about is the turmeric. Turmeric helps boost your immune system and also is well known anti-inflammatory ingredient you can add to so many things. Sometimes I'll even add a little to my oatmeal in the morning. Anywhoooooo here is the recipe.
Turmeric Hot Chocolate
2 cups coconut milk
3 tbs cocoa
2 tbs local honey
2 tsp coconut oil
1/4-1/2 tsp turmeric (you choose)
3 drops Ginger oil (or pinch of ground ginger)
tiny bit of salt
The other ingredients that are naturally antibacterial are the local honey and coconut oil. Both have so many properties that help cut through the germs and local honey also helps with seasonal allergies for spring time :)
This is honey from my family's bees in New Jersey.
Put everything in a pot and bring to a simmer just until everything melts and combines and then ENJOY!!!
