healthy hot chocolate


My boys woke up this morning needing to go outside.  While I do my best to get them out despite the cold, it’s not what I want to do the instant I wake up.

But one thing I’ve learned about living in cold weather is the only way to enjoy the winter is to just embrace it.  Wow, it feels weird even typing that.  This Texas gal has come a long way, folks.

What is the one universal thing everyone must do after playing in the snow? Drink hot chocolate.

My version is simple and I feel pretty good about giving my boys as much as they’d like.


  • 1 cup raw milk (you can sub for your milk of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon organic dark coco powder
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon grade B maple syrup

Mix all ingredients in small pot and warm over medium heat until you reach desired temperature.  You can use more or less coco or maple syrup depending on your preference.

This made just enough for my boys to share.  It’s a thrill as a mom to feed them fun treats that aren’t bad for their bodies!
