Healthy Non-Dairy Turmeric Hot Chocolate

turmeric hot chocolate recipe

We believe hot chocolate can be delicious and healthy! For instance, we love pairing it with turmeric, creating an antioxidant-filled combo.

Turmeric also has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. We like to combine it with black pepper, which contains the bioactive compound “piperine”. This makes the turmeric more bioavailable. So not only does is this combination healthy, the subtle kick in the pepper will take your drink to the next level!

Therefore, we’ve come up with a simple recipe combining all three ingredients. Have it in the morning to set the tone for the day, or at night, so you can wind down under warm, cozy blankets.
