It’s autumn and the desire for comforting and warm food and drink need not compromise our health. This superfood hot chocolate is refined sugar free, dairy free and as creamy and sweet as the traditional.
Made from nutritious ingredients that support immunity and cognitive health, this is the perfect drink as the days get shorter and cooler. Malty from the Lion’s Mane, creamy from the almond milk, sweet from the dates and given a well rounded chocolate flavour by the carob and cacao, this is a luxuriously comforting drink for both our taste buds and our health.
Medicinal mushrooms are touted as offering the body many benefits including anti tumour, anti inflammatory and anti viral support.
