On those blustery winter days, cozy up under a warm blanket with a good book and a mug of Healing Tahini Hot Chocolate. This healthy cocoa recipe is gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and top 8 allergen free. This winter beverage with healing spices like turmeric will warm the body, mind, and soul!
My friends! It’s 2017! We have all been freshly given the opportunity to embark on a perfectly untouched new year! Even if we say we don’t do goals or resolutions, I know it’s hard to actually 100% banish that mindset when we’re bombarded with NEW YEAR, NEW YOU! I never say I “make goals or resolutions”, but I always think of things I want to have happen or hopefully do.
I mean, come on now, everyone does it! Even if someone says they are “anti-goal”, you know there are still little hopes and dreams floating around in their heads! We aren’t immune, I know I’m not immune! But that’s okay! We don’t have to go around declaring these big lofty goals to the world. We can still make subtle small tweaks and changes as the new year begins, that only we know and keep to ourselves. And I know. “You don’t have to wait for the new calendar year to start (or stop) a new habit or form a new goal. You can do it right now, this minute!” But come on…it’s way more fun and motivating to make a change starting January 1st!
So, I know your dirty little secret. I know you’ve made a goal, wish, hope, resolution. I know 😉 I feel like there are 2 camps to this debate. The “YES GOALS AND RESOLUTIONS” camp and the “STOP THE SILLY MADNESS AND INEVITABLE FAILURE!” camp. But I’m here to tell you that it’s okay! Goals and resolutions in the new year are fun! We’ve commercialized every “holiday” and the new year has not been untouched by the glamor of goal-setting. It’s fun, so this year I’m telling you to keep those goals and resolutions, secret or shouted to the world! You go get it! And now, to get you started on a great new year, let’s say cheers to this healing tahini hot chocolate that’s loaded with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, tahini, cocoa, and love <3 Gluten-free, vegan, paleo, “Whole 30 approved” (if that’s one of your goals!), and allergy-friendly. A perfect cozy mug full of hope and love!
Healing Tahini Hot Chocolate
- Bring the milk to a low boil in a large pot on the stove.
- Add in the other ingredients and stir to combine.
- Remove from heat and serve! Top with sesame seeds and chocolate chips if desired!
Another thing I want to add. I’m not going to go out of my way to flow with the trend of “POST ALL THE ULTRA-HEALTHY RECIPES JANUARY”. Obviously, Strength and Sunshine recipes are healthy, but I would kill you with a bunch of salads 😉 I’ll give you things like this healthy tahini hot chocolate instead! A healthy indulgence for those long, cold, winter days ahead! (I wish I could make a resolution to end all freezing winters…) Alas, this will be my remedy!
So tell me:
+ What camp do you fall in? Are you “in the middle” like me?
+ Come on…tell me your resolution!
