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!
