Nothing beats a warm hot chocolate, but unfortunately most contain milk, cream and lots of sugar. This Sweet Freedom approved healthy hot chocolate recipe uses cashew nuts to hit those creamy notes we love in a hot chocolate.

We will be using 1 medjool date to sweeten this hot chocolate recipe which will provide just the right amount of sweetness to compliment the chocolate.
