Snow in November means hot chocolate season is officially upon us! As a child, hot chocolate was always my mom's go-to drink when we came in from playing out in the snow. It's sweet, creamy, and warm; basically all the ingredients for comfort! Though I may not get out to play in the snow as much, a good cup of hot chocolate in the evening snuggled on the couch still hits the spot. Over the years, I've adapted an adult version of this childhood favorite. It's full of anti-inflammatory spices and hormone balancing maca, so enjoy this sweet and spicy beverage while also treating yourself
