This is a flavorful sugar-free creamy hot drink perfect for the mornings and is a fantastic alternative to coffee. Not only does cocoa powder mix easily with hot liquids for instant taste but it also contains many minerals such as iron, zinc and magnesium which is essential for a healthy immune system. Cocoa powder provides a good source of anti-oxidants and fiber benefiting our digestive health.
The combination of coconut milk with the vanilla and cinnamon gives a lovely warm taste and cinnamon is a super spice that not only satisfies our tastebuds but is one of the healthiest spices around. It reduces risk of heart disease, lowers blood sugar levels and fights against inflammation. And these are only to name a few!
