Turmeric Hot Chocolate

The other day I saw that I Quit Sugar had a Anti-Inflammatory Hot Chocolate and it looked amazing! I wondered whether adding some raw cacao powder to my Turmeric Golden Latte would taste any good.

 So, I decided to make one and see. 

WOW!! It was so so good! I ended up making two more that day. Whoops!

My Turmeric Hot Chocolate is one delicious drink and it is super healthy too. 

Turmeric has amazing anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and gastrointestinal health benefits, largely due to curcumin, which is an antioxidant. I also added ginger, cinnamon and black pepper essential oils which give it such an amazing taste. 

Ginger oil is is great for supporting gut health and Cinnamon oil supports a healthy metabolic function as well as maintaining a healthy immune system. Black pepper oil is known for its ability to help ward off environmental and seasonal threats. 

And finally, raw cacao powder is a very high source of iron, is packed full of magnesium and is a natural mood elevator. 

WINNING!

I usually make my hot drinks in my Thermomix, but I have also included the regular method in the recipes as well as alternatives if you do not own essential oils.

Enjoy
