Blackstrap Cocoa

Blackstrap Cocoa

This drink is so quick to make: just pour boiling water onto some cocoa powder and dollop in some blackstrap molasses. It satisfies both a sugar and chocolate craving and packs in some nutrients to boot thanks to the blackstrap molasses. No refined sugar plus it’s low calorie compared to your bog standard cocoa! It may take a bit of getting used to if you usually drink milky cocoa, but you’ll probably end up preferring it.
