Healthier Hot Chocolate

Is everyone is ready for the holidays? I can’t believe we are two days from Christmas. I love this time of year. Everyone is a little nicer and I love all of the pretty decorations. As I am writing this I am sitting by our beautiful Christmas tree wishing I had a mug full of this super easy healthier hot chocolate. I love drinking hot chocolate by the tree with a good Christmas movie.

This hot chocolate is just 3 ingredients and can be made in the microwave or on the stove top. It is super easy and sweetened with date paste to make it a little healthier. If you don’t have date paste you could also honey or maple syrup. I found date paste at a local health food store.

This is our first Christmas as a married couple and I feel like that makes it extra special. We are hopping around between our two families this year. We are so lucky to have so much family near by that we can spend the holidays with. What are your Christmas plans? I hope there are merry and filled with family, love and joy.
