Easy Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate

I'm a big fan of chocolate in any form. Especially around this time, I love a good cup of hot chocolate. Of course, I have to find a way to make it just a little bit healthier ...

Cocoa powder is a great source of antioxidants and maple syrup is an excellent natural sweetener filled with electrolytes. Almond milk is also a great alternative for those of you sensitive to dairy!

Ingredients

• 1 cup of almond milk

• 1 tbsp of cocoa powder

• 1-2 tbsp of pure maple syrup (depending on how sweet you would like it)

Directions

• Heat almond milk over low-medium heat

• Add cocoa powder and maple syrup, whisking periodically

• Enjoy!

This is an awesome drink for a cold winter night and a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth!
