There is little else that achieves the Danes' coveted 'hygge' than a crackling fire and a steaming decadent mug of hot chocolate. While I love my velvety potion, thick and gooey, sinfully chocolatey, I also want the guilt-free benefit of a superfood packed with health benefits (if only to ease my conscience).
We know the mood enhancing and anti-depressant benefits Cacao offers, but it’s also packed with nutrients and vitamins and is a rich source of magnesium, iron and antioxidants.
Hot chocolate hardly needs a recipe. Adjust the sweetness to taste, add more of what you like and leave out what you don’t. Experiment by adding a pinch of chilli or a few cardamom pods. Try variations of rice or almond milk. The thing here is, your hot chocolate will only be as good as your star ingredient. As much as possible choose the best quality, organic, low heat processed cacao powder you can afford.
