I got the base of this wonderful recipe from Rebecca at Be Naturally Fit (check out her AWESOME at home workouts here)! I tweaked the recipe a bit to my own taste to give it a little more sweetness and thickness! 

This recipe is SO much better than our regular hot chocolate because the healthy fat, fibre and little bit of protein help keep our blood sugar levels stable MUCH longer!

Health Boosting Hot Chocolate


6 dates

2 cups unsweetened almond milk

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

1 tablespoon of natural almond butter

2 tablespoons chia seeds (if you don’t have a high powered blender, these may not fully blend – you may omit them but they do make the hot chocolate very thick 🙂 )


Blend until smooth. Pour into a saucepan and heat on low until desire temperature is reached. Serve.


Hope you guys love this recipe as much as I do! If you try it, post your reviews in the comment section below!

Yours in Health,
