During the holiday season, there’s nothing like treating yourself to a sweet cup of hot chocolate. While chocolate, with its antioxidants and caffeine, is actually great for the brain, the sugars that often accompany this store bought delight are not. In order to satisfy your sweet tooth AND maintain healthy brain function, sometimes you have to think outside of the Swiss Miss box. This winter, leave the sugar at the grocery store, and try a sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free hot chocolate recipe. Whether you’re hosting a yankee swap, or watching a Christmas movie with family, this quick recipe makes a delicious pick-me-up for all!
