This hot chocolate has super powers like immune boosting, blood sugar balancing, packed with omega 3’s to make you even more beautiful, antioxidants & flavonoids just to mention a few.
Needless to say I am an obvious health advocate and also shamelessly obsessed with Dr. Oz. Now I don’t live and breathe by everything he says but I do like watching his show to see if I can learn something new. The other day he had on Sanjay Gupta who I never knew he was a neurologist and shared one of his treats he has at the end of the day. He made a “milk” drink & warmed it up with a dash of turmeric, ginger and cinnamon which I thought was pretty interesting and surprised I hadn’t tried this yet considering I put those ingredients in everything. So today I had to try it but made it into a “secret” hot chocolate and I also added a few other of my favorite ingredients. Shockingly, it was good. Really good, and you don’t taste the turmeric or ginger like you would think.
Doesn’t this look like a heart? Maybe it’s saying something… ;)
Especially with all this “flu epidemic” going on I up the ante on my regular routine because personally I’m not a flu shot fan. So for a little extra nourishment, try this hot chocolate, it’s really comforting and delicious.
A teaspoon of turmeric helps the medicine go down! ;)

1 tsp maca powder
