Sometimes you just need a great hot chocolate recipe on hand for cold winter days. I love whipping up a batch of this nourishing hot chocolate to sip on while I read my favorite book or watch the snow fall (okay, this is kinda rare in Seattle)! I hope you enjoy my favorite nourishing hot chocolate recipe!
Nourishing Hot Chocolate Recipe:
