No week is complete without chocolate. This drinkable dessert gets a ruby tint from cherry juice, which, along with the cocoa powder and dark chocolate, is packed with good-for-you antioxidants.
The cherry on top
Sipping this hot chocolate before bed could be your secret to sweet dreams. Cherry juice contains melatonin, an antioxidant that aids in sleep regulation.
2 cups light canned coconut milk
1/4 cup unsweetened cherry juice
2 Tbsp coconut sugar
3 Tbsp finely chopped or grated vegan dark chocolate
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 Tbsp unsweetened toasted coconut chips
In medium saucepan over medium heat, whisk milk, juice, sugar, dark chocolate and cocoa powder until melted, piping hot and fully combined.
Whisk to create a few air bubbles, then pour into mugs, top with coconut chips and serve.
