Organic Mint Hot Chocolate

This one goes out to all the mint chocolate lovers. On cold days, cozy up and warm up with this healthy tea-infused hot chocolate recipe.

What's in it for you: 

This 5 ingredient sweet treat is infused with organic spearmint tea to help move your body into relaxation. Bonus - it adds a flavorful twist on the traditional hot cocoa recipe. 

We also used coconut milk to add a rich, dairy-free creaminess, organic dark chocolate chips and raw honey. Products are linked for your convenience (but definitely use raw local honey if you can find it - in addition to the enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, it may help prevent seasonal allergies). 

What you'll need [Serves 2]:

Directions:

  1. In a saucepan bring coconut milk, water, and spearmint tea to a boil
  2. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes
  3. Remove from heat and remove tea bags
  4. Stir in chocolate chips and honey, mixing until melted
  5. Pour into mugs and drink up the goodness.

And if you want to make it boozy.... 

Add the 1 oz creme de menthe to each mug and pour the mint hot chocolate over the liqueur. Stir, then garnish as desired. Enjoy!

Rooibos Tea Latte

This caffeine-free Rooibos Tea Latte is a cozy warm drink perfect for evenings. It's a simple, healthy recipe that begs to be made regularly. Why we love it: Rooibos is perhaps the most perfect tea to use for a latte. Rooibos is unique because the longer it brews, the bolder the flavor without any astringent bitter aftertaste. Rooibos also has a myriad of health benefits, especially around beauty and anti-aging (yes please).
