It’s almost Valentine’s day! You guys know I have an obsession with chocolate, so the holiday seemed like a perfect excuse to develop a decadent recipe.
This is one I will definitely share with my family. I want the people I love to eat healthy and this is a great gateway recipe. Who could say no to hot chocolate?! No one even has to know it’s paleo and so low in sugar! It tastes rich and amazing while also being extremely nutrient dense. The high fat content makes it blood sugar stabilizing, and you can adjust the sweetness of the drink as needed. I thought it was super satisfying with only 1 teaspoon of honey, which adds just 6 grams of carbohydrates!
Share a cup of chocolate love with a significant other, friend, family member, roommate, whoever! It’s time to celebrate living a life filled with all types of love :)
