Every once in a blue moon a few drops of water fall from the sky in Southern California. I’m told this is called rain. It’s been a while. I have hot chocolate about as often as it rains here… not very often. I used to get those instant packets of hot chocolate from the store. You know, with the little marshmallows and stuff? Have you ever turned one of those suckers over and read the ingredients? Wowza! The good news is you can make a much healthier version at home with very few ingredients.
Here is a delicious recipe for dairy free, refined sugar free paleo hot chocolate.
