Healthy Human Hot Chocolate

by | Nov 16, 2018 | Recipes

Yup, you read that right, there is a such thing as healthy hot chocolate!  Remember, eating a whole food plant-based diet is not about deprivation.  At this stage, it’s more about innovation, and fining creative ways to enjoy life in every way, while getting and staying healthy at the same time!  

So go ahead and play outside in the cold.  Go for a run, go for a hike, or go sledding and make a snowman!  Have fun, and when you are soaked and chilled to the bone, come inside and make yourself a hot delicious treat to enjoy, guilt-free!

Healthy Human Hot Chocolate  (serves 4)


  • 4 pitted medjool dates
  • 3 cups of hot water
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup cashews


  • Boil water
  • Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender
  • Start slow, and bring up to full speed to blend until thick and frothy 
  • Pour into 4 mugs, and enjoy the healthy deliciousness

WARNING: Be very careful when starting the blender containing boiling water.  You need to make sure to start slow, and then increase the speed gradually so it doesn’t splash all over the place, make a mess, and burn you in the process.
