Almond milk hot chocolate! I'm telling you, this is so delicious! It's smooth and slightly thick, so it feels like you are being super indulgent.
ALMOND MILK HOT CHOCOLATE
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder (more or less, depending on your taste)
1 tsp. honey, sugar or sugar free sweetener (to taste)
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt
Heat the almond milk over a medium heat in a small saucepan. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a low boil, then simmer for 2 minutes and season to taste with cinnamon and salt. Serve immediately with whipped cream.
This is such a warm comforting drink in the morning, or at the end of the day, and it doesn't make me feel too full like hot chocolate made with milk. The almond milk is so good for you, and the cocoa powder is just packed full of antioxidants, and this drink is very low in calories...win, win!!
I really love a good salad, but it has to be substantial to make it feel like a meal...this is my favorite taco salad.
It's super simple, just put a big scoop of cold chili (it's better than it sounds) and beans on the lettuce, add tomatoes, sprouts, cilantro, plain Greek yogurt and a few big squirts of Sriracha sauce....yum!! I also like olives, chopped green onions, salsa, left over taco meat, ranch dressing and oven baked tortilla chips...just use your imagination and what's in your fridge!
It's hard trying to make healthy meals when you are cooking for two, so I'm always trying new recipes, or re-vamping old ones. I'm not so sure my husband loves it, but he's not a complainer, and he usually just eats whatever I put on the table. What are some of your favorite healthy meals?
Have a wonderful week-end, and be safe!! XOXOXO
Hugs and Love,
