Calming Hot Chocolate

Sugar Free

I love a good hot chocolate when I am cold. I’m pretty much in love with hot chocolate right now. I want a nice warm drink to have once the kids go to bed and I’m sitting next to Adam relaxing before bed.

This is the most relaxing hot chocolate you will find. It is full of peaceful and soothing ingredients that will help you fall asleep and rest well.

Hot chocolate is such a comforting drink and it is pretty healthy too!

I use stevia as my sweetener, because I have trouble controlling my blood sugar using other natural sweeteners. This keeps it sugar free and helps keep your blood levels balanced before going to bed.

I also use chamomile tea as my liquid when I make this hot chocolate. The chamomile is a natural relaxer and will help you ease into a nice restful sleep. Read my post on how important sleep in for your health here. 

Magnesium is also added to this calming hot chocolate recipe to help increase the relaxing benefits. Magnesium is a wonderful mineral for your health and many people are deficient in it. When you are deficient, you have more issues with insomnia and waking up during the night. Adding this powerful mineral to your calming hot chocolate will help you increase your magnesium intake easily. More on easy ways to increase your magnesium here.  Try my Apple Night-Night Gummies Recipe to help your kids get their magnesium. 

 

I hope you enjoy this wonderful night time drink.

      I know! I wished that I had known last year that a healthy version of hot chocolate was out there to be made! I was pregnant and craving hot chocolate. This is wonderful. Full of antioxidants and calming properties – no guilt needed here. Hope you enjoy it!

    I never thought of making hot chocolate without milk. Looks like a great way to get a good night’s sleep.

      You could add a little milk if you want. I bet that would be wonderful too : )
