Indulge during the holidays with this cozy drink that’s not only delightfully decadent, but good for you!
Combine dark chocolate, a generous helping of red vino, a splash of milk and what do you get? Every Sol Sister’s dream: hot chocolate that packs an antioxidant punch!
Red wine and dark chocolate are loaded with antioxidants (flavonoids) that protect against heart disease, boost your healthy cholesterol, and … are so irresistible! With one cup, you’ll ramp up your cancer fighting agents and feel sol la la warm. You can be sure, this chocolatey- antioxidant-rich drink is #SolFood approved!
Our Sol Sister, Lizzy, who shared this recipe with us called this magical treat “velvet in your mouth.” We love to sip it snuggled up with friends and family next to a crackling fireplace.
