Calming Hot Chocolate
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.
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.
