Healthy Hot Chocolate

Try this DELICIOUS cacao powder from Sevenhills Wholefoods. It’s my favourite because it makes a really silky cup of naturally low-calorie hot chocolate by just adding hot water. Great when you need a chocolate fix!

Try the recipe below for an indulgent hot chocolate with a twist.

Hot Cacao with Cardamom + Tahini (Vegan)


  • 2 cups milk of choice I like unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 5 tbs organic cacao powder
  • 3 tbs maple syrup (optional)
  • 2 tbs tahini
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 green cardamon pod contents freshly ground (or 1/4 tsp ground cardamom)
  • optionally ground cardamom or cinnamon for garnishing


  • In a sauce pan over medium heat combine all of the above ingredients.
  • Whisk continually until all is smoothly combined, beginning to bubble and appears frothy.
  • Carefully pour into mug(s), and optionally sprinkle with a little cardamom or cinnamon.
  • Enjoy!
