If you are craving something sweet, try this hot chocolate recipe with fresh mint. Made with clean ingredients like almond milk & raw cacao powder.
In this video of clean eating Arielle Haspel shows you how to make the perfect indulgent treat when you’re craving something sweet – fresh mint hot chocolate. It’s perfect for those days when you want to cuddle on your couch and eat everything in sight, but don’t want to feel guilty afterwards. This will leave you feeling guilt free after drinking it! Start with a cup of almond milk, or coconut milk if you want it a little creamier and thicker. Place the milk in a pot on low to medium heat to reach a very low boil.
When Arielle talks about clean eating, it’s not about depriving yourself of all sugars. Try adding some coconut palm sugar instead of white sugar. Next add the raw cacao powder. This is actually from the cacao bean, which has no sugar in it. Then add some fresh mint.
Now you have an indulgent, cozy treat that’s also fresh!

I'm Arielle Haspel with Healthy Nation,
and today we're making mint hot chocolate,
00:00:09.793 --> 00:00:15.501
the perfect indulgent treat when you're
craving something sweet.
00:00:15.501 --> 00:00:19.125
So you know those days when you just wanna
cuddle up on your couch and
00:00:19.125 --> 00:00:23.592
eat everything and drink everything in
sight but you don't wanna feel like crap,
00:00:23.592 --> 00:00:25.090
and guilty after?
00:00:25.090 --> 00:00:28.650
Well, today we are going to fix that
because we're making
00:00:28.650 --> 00:00:32.480
mint hot chocolate that will leave you
feeling guilt free after you drink it.
00:00:32.480 --> 00:00:37.110
So all you need is a cup of almond milk,
or you could use some coconut milk,
00:00:37.110 --> 00:00:40.410
if you want it a little bit creamy and a
little, little bit thicker.
00:00:40.410 --> 00:00:44.250
You're gonna boil this on a very light
00:00:44.250 --> 00:00:48.960
I would say low to medium heat and here we
have some coconut palm sugar.
00:00:48.960 --> 00:00:52.140
This actually comes from the top of the
coconut palm trees, and
00:00:52.140 --> 00:00:53.660
it's a low-glycemic sugar.
00:00:53.660 --> 00:00:58.450
So when we talk about clean eating, it's
not necessarily depriving yourself of all
00:00:58.450 --> 00:01:03.510
sugars but I wouldn't say white sugar is
the best alternative for a good
00:01:03.510 --> 00:01:07.970
feeling body and glowing skin and then,
we're going to add some cocoa powder.
00:01:07.970 --> 00:01:12.580
This is actually from the cocoa bean, what
chocolate comes from.
00:01:12.580 --> 00:01:15.390
So when you always hear about
00:01:15.390 --> 00:01:20.280
full of good stuff, this is actually where
it comes from, and there's no sugar in it.
00:01:20.280 --> 00:01:24.275
So we're going to add this, we're going to
add some fresh mint.
00:01:24.275 --> 00:01:27.490
Mm, an indulgent treat that's also fresh.
00:01:27.490 --> 00:01:31.896
00:01:31.896 --> 00:01:37.695
Look at this!
00:01:37.695 --> 00:01:41.460
Mm, comforting and cozy to the max.
00:01:41.460 --> 00:01:43.830
Perfect when you're craving something
00:01:43.830 --> 00:01:47.812
