I am beyond excited to share this!! So for me giving up refined sugar for the month also meant giving up chocolate. Now it’s not like I go off the deep end stuffing my face with chocolate all day, BUT I do enjoy a good piece of chocolate or something chocolatey almost every day. I swear it has something to do with my pregnancies, because before that chocolate was never really on my radar. I mean after my youngest daughter, Layla, was born I think I baked a new batch of chocolate chip cookies almost every day after returning from the hospital. Keep in mind I wasn’t eating all of them….I had some helpers!!
Ok…so back to what this post is all about. HOT CHOCOLATE….but without the addition of any refined sugars!! AND….wait for it…PROTEIN!! That’s a win-win if you ask me! Now that I’ve made this the wheels are turning…so many more ideas coming to mind. Just give it a try and let me know what you think! I think I’m hooked…and now the girls have something healthy to put in their tiny new mugs!!
