The cold air has rolled in and even flurries and all I want to do is snuggle up with a nice warm mug of hot cocoa. Not just any hot chocolate though Turmeric Hot Cocoa!
Sometimes out bodies just need a little extra TLC and right now is one of those times for me. Turmeric has always been a staple and regular in my daily life but more so right now after barre and just in general to help with inflammation and stress. I managed to keep up with my 3-4 barre classes a week through the first 20 weeks of pregnancy which was my goal. Now I will go to 2-3 classes a week while listening to my body and still making sure I get the rest and care it needs.
I’ve been loving Turmeric Golden Milk for years. First adding turmeric to smoothies and smoothie bowls, then making turmeric milk to sip hot or cold or add to my smoothies. I’ve talked about why I love turmeric for so many reasons over and over so I won’t go into that you can read here, or one of my many other posts. If you’re looking for more anti-inflammatory turmeric recipes here are “a few” options from salads, smoothies, smoothie bowls, baked goods, ect.
Switching up my a favorite turmeric lattes I went a little more indulging with this Turmeric Hot Cocoa! Hot Cocoa with benefits, a little spice, a little bite (from ginger), and everything nice!
Nice because it’s made with raw cacao powder! Cacao powder is one of the most powerful superfoods that’s packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Great for brain and cardiovascular health, memory, immunity, positive effects on stress and inflammation, they don’t call it good mood food for nothing.
I can just sit and sip a mug of Turmeric Hot Cocoa and relax it’s so calming. Made with healthy real food ingredients and sweetened with pure maple syrup or honey I can smile with each sip knowing I’m doing something good for my body. This is an easy recipe to add adaptogens and or collagen to. Currently I don’t add my usual adaptogens as I’m pregnant but have been adding collagen as I really need to up my protein and it’s been a real struggle with many of the plant-based sources and old staples not agreeing with me.
