When it’s chilly out I am always ready for a nice warm mug of hot cocoa! I got tired of making the single serve, pulling out all those ingredients each time would often deter me from following through.

I decided to make my own version of a batch of cocoa mix! Pull out the jar, toss it into the blender with my bonus ingredient and TADAAA!! Happy cocoa!!

So, what’s my bonus ingredient and why do I call it happy cocoa mix?
Well….I have this issue I often deal with in the winter, I struggle to get all my veggies in! I have heard this same challenge with many of my coaching clients as well, so I am always on the lookout for sneaky ways to get them in!! When I drink this cocoa, it’s not only delicious, but it makes me happy to know I am enjoying a wonderful, creamy treat that has veggies in it!
