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, because it has the added nutrient-rich plants, minerals, and adaptogens that can help you calm down for a peaceful night. 

Hot chocolate is such a comforting drink and it is pretty healthy too when you make it without the sugar. 

I use stevia as my sweetener in most of my recipes and this hot chocolate uses a superfood chocolate powder that is already sweetened with stevia, so it is super easy to make! read more

Peanut Butter Crunch Chocolate Mug Cake

What could be better than peanut butter and chocolate in a single serving cake?

I love this peanut butter crunch chocolate mug cake for a dessert recipe because it is sugar free, grain free, and gluten free. 

I’m loving single serving cakes because you can enjoy them fresh out of the oven or microwave – which is always when they taste the best. I also love topping this with Peanut flavored Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is so versatile. I love how it can be a sub for sour cream or be sweetened to act like an icing. 

I buy all my specialty products from Amazon.com. I am a subscribe and save member, so I get 20% off my monthly orders. This is one of my saving money tricks for my groceries. 

My husband thought this Peanut Butter Crunch Chocolate Mug Cake reminded him of Reese’s Peanut Butter candy (which is our favorite). What do you think?
