Healthy, Rich Spiced Hot Chocolate (Paleo / Vegan / GF)

Is it really Christmas without hot chocolate? I don’t think so. Hot chocolate is an absolute staple during the holiday season. Thinking about all of the pre-made hot chocolate packets I used to guzzle down year after year for most of my life makes my stomach flip. I don’t even know what’s in those packets, but I know it’s not good. Definitely not real food. Probably gave me gut bugs. Hot chocolate tastes best when it’s healthy. I promise. Aaaaand this recipe has a few little twists, because you know I couldn’t just post about your average hot chocolate. First of all,…

It’s BUTTERBEER TIME!

If you’re a Harry Potter addict like me, or just obsessed with warm, delicious cups of goodness, then I’ve got a real treat for ya. I stumbled upon a great Butterbeer recipe on Pinterest last weekend, and with a few modifications, a miracle was born. Unfortunately, I am everything but a fan of the “Butterbeer” at Harry Potter World.

It was literally cream soda with foam on top. This…
