Cocoa is full of antioxidants and flavanols which may help reduce the risk of heart disease and lower cholesterol. Here is one of my favorite (heart-healthy) hot cocoa recipes:
– 1 cup of milk
– 1 Tablespoon of organic cane sugar
– 1 1/2 Tablespoon of Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa powder
Put in the slow cooker at put on high until it is hot (about 1-2 hours). Then keep it on warm so you can serve at any time!
For extra flavor, add a dash of cinnamon.
