2 Healthy Hot Chocolate Recipes To Enjoy This Fall


I’m a summer momma and love being outside sipping on cool smoothies. This year I’ll admit that I look forward to cooler weather while enjoying some healthy warm drinks. One of my favorite parts of autumn is snuggling up on the couch with hot chocolate in my cup to help warm me up from the inside out. I also love sitting at the table sipping on something warm while setting goals for the new year to come. During the cooler months, I tend to skip out on hitting the gym. So it is even better when my cup is filled with something healthy that includes chocolate!

Hot chocolate is a fall favorite for many of us. But we know those hot chocolate calories add up quick. So I wanted to share two of my fave healthy hot chocolate recipes to sip on this fall season.
