Introduction

Immunity-Boosting Hot Chocolate

Staying warm and dry as a typhoon ravages on outside – it’s been a bit of a hectic September so I’ve been drinking this immune-boosting creamy hot chocolate (now that it’s a little cooler!).

Ingredients

  • Turmeric powder, 1 tsp.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tsp.
  • Ginger powder, 1/2 tsp.
  • Cinnamon, a dash
  • Nutmeg, a dash
  • Honey, 1/2 tbsp.
  • Ground black pepper, a dash
  • Unsweetened soy milk or regular milk, 1 mug

Simmer over low heat and cozy up with a book and warm blanket – if you’re wondering what the black pepper is doing in there, basically it helps your body absorb the helpful curcumin properties in turmeric.
