I can’t believe it is already February 28th! Spring is right around the corner. To wrap up Heart Health Month, I’d like to add one more food to the heart to the list…CHOCOLATE!
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 (I use skim or 1%)
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!
