Affiliate Disclosure

The holidays are here, which means it's time to cozy up with some hot cocoa.

This recipe comes in at less than 6g of sugar per serving, which is 1/3 of the sugar in a standard package of hot chocolate mix. Plus, the added cinnamon may help to balance blood glucose levels while the turmeric and black pepper aim to boost liver detoxification.(1, 2)

It's important to note, although this hot chocolate is a much better alternative to the typical, sugar-dense hot chocolate, this should still be considered a treat to be enjoyed a few times a week (especially if you're working toward a weight loss goal).
