Hot Chocolate That's Tastey and Good for You

Updated on November 21, 2010

 What can be better on a cold snowy afternoon than a nice big much of hot chocolate? Especially if it is topped off with some marshmallows or a big helping of whip cream! Oh my mouth is watering. But if you are on a diet there is a healthier way to indulge yourself this holiday season! And I've got just the recipe for you! And I'll even tell you why this recipe is even better for you than just plain hot chocolate. So lets get started so you can enjoy!

Hot Chocolate (the kind that's good for you)

 What you'll need to get started :

  • 1 3/4 cups pure coconut water
  • One 3oz dark chocolate bar with almonds, broken into pieces
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 32 mini marshmallows (typically about 1/2 cup)

So how do you make it?

Get yourself a small, heavy saucepan and heat the coconut water and dark chocolate over medium heat. Sift in the cocoa, stirring, until the mixture comes to a simmer, about 5 minutes. Divide the hot chocolate among 4 mugs and top with the marshmallows.

Yup it's that easy. And it's tasty and good for you to!

So what makes it so good for you?

 Well by using the dark chocolate you get a bolder flavor and good for you antioxidants. You are also replacing sugar with the natural sweetness of the coconut water, and you are keeping it creamy, without using any dairy products, by using melted marshmallows.
