There’s nothing like snuggling up on the couch, rugged up in a warm blanket on a cold winter night, sipping on hot chocolate and reading a good book. Ah, we can picture our Sunday night already. Unfortunately, we all know hot chocolate can spell trouble for our sleep. Hot milk loaded with sugary chocolate powder isn’t a treat we can afford to have every night, it spells out bad news for our waistlines, and our sleep!
Thankfully, amazing nutritionist, Shannon Rosie is here to help. Between running a fabulous new restaurant, Rosie’s in Coogee, NSW, and launching a great book, Conscious Cocktails, Shannon has created a perfect hot chocolate recipe for The Goodnight Co. It’s perfect with low sugar content, dairy free and healthy fats; a treat that won’t keep you up until all hours of the night.
These all-natural ingredients will warm you from the inside and aid uninterrupted sleep.
Best of all? The hot chocolate is to-die-for! The all-natural ingredients and subtle vanilla of the Deep Sleep Powder will have you lapping up every last drop. Check out the recipe below. You can thank us later!
Bedtime Hot Chocolate
- 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 2 tsp almond butter or alternative nut butter
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tsp organic coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Pinch quality sea salt, to taste
- Sweeten with 1 serve Stevia, or 1 tsp maple syrup (optional)
If you have a milk frother then all you need to do is add all ingredients and pop on the ‘steam/hot’ setting. Easy!
If you don’t have a milk frother - no worries! - this can be done in a blender (just blend until nice and smooth) and then heat over the stove until warm.
