Holiday Quick Fix: Hot Cocoa Anyone?

New York isn’t feeling too frightful just yet as is typical with this time of year, but the commercials don’t lie, the holidays are upon us. With Christmas lists growing, Thanksgiving menus expanding, and New Years Eve plans brewing, the holidays scream good times and sharing a piping cup of hot cocoa is apart of many traditions.

It’s nostalgic. It warms you up. It can be spiked. It is liquid chocolate heaven.

The warm concoction can be a delightful dessert to cap off a meal, or a delicious dose of an arsenal of greens delivering your body a wealth of important vitamins.

Yes, hot chocolate can be indulgent and good for you thanks to Jen Hansard and Jadah Sellner. The mompreneurs spearhead a healthy green smoothie lifestyle with recipes that are set to help you forget your ingesting spinach and kale courtesy of bold flavors.

With recipes like their Pumpkin Dream Pie, Jen and Jadah manage to create easy-to-do green smoothies requiring 10 minutes in the kitchen for a delicious energy boost. As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches, Jen and Jadah’s new book – Simple Green Smoothies: 100 + Tasty Recipes to Lose Weight, Gain Energy and Feel Great in Your Body – is just in time to fight those holiday table spreads.

Snatched from a page of Jen and Jadah’s new book, try adding this warm smoothie to your holiday hot cocoa treat list.
