I was craving hot cocoa the other day, as I came indoors from temperatures down into the mid-teens and I realized that hot cocoa is something I never “allow” myself to indulge in. I make it for my son and his buddies all winter long, but I always have tea. Hmmmm…
That was beginning to sound like denial to me, an unhealthy state of mind, so I set about making a simple hot cocoa in a way that suited my Nutritional Style®.
I used coconut sugar, a delicious sweetener that’s low on the glycemic index, meaning it doesn’t spike your blood sugar levels the way processed white sugar would. It’s dairy free, low-glycemic, and perfect for you Healthy Omnivores, Flexible Vegetarians, and Modern Vegans too.
No more denial for any of us. Time to indulge in a traditional treat, guilt-free.
