[Foodie Friday Recipe] Superfood Hot Chocolate – Two Ways

Warm up & cozy up with a delicious cup of superfood hot chocolate – it just hits the spot on a cold winter night!

A steaming cup of hot chocolate is the perfect way to enjoy a cozy winter evening! These two superfood hot chocolate recipes put a healthy twist on this classic hot beverage, with the addition of “superfoods” like cacao, Goji, and Acai powder. They’re just as delicious, but better for you!

These recipes are great for those who can’t consume dairy or are following a vegan diet, but you can feel free to substitute regular whole milk if that’s more your style. You can also opt to make these beverage a bit more “adult” if you like, with the addition of some spirits to help warm you up even more. 🙂
