Sip Your Way To Serenity This February With DIY Herbal Hot Chocolates

We love YYC's Hot Chocolate Fest in February so much that we decided to provide you with some of our favourite herbal DIY hot chocolates that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home! Hot chocolate, being a timeless favorite, has endless possibilities for you to get creative and incorporate some of your favourite flavours, aromas, and even herbal benefits. Below is a collection of some of our favourite ways to add a twist to our cup of hot cocoa, and the best part is, you can find all of these herbs in our shoppe! Or shop our Bulk Hot Chocolate at 15% off for the entire month of February!

Lavender Hot Cocoa: Bask in the calming properties of lavender with this dreamy hot cocoa. Infuse your milk of choice with dried lavender buds and strain before mixing with your choice of hot cocoa to add a subtle floral note and promote relaxation and tranquility.

Chai Spiced Hot Cocoa: To keep this caffeine free, infuse your milk of choice with cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves before straining and mixing with your choice of hot cocoa. If you are looking for an extra kick, infuse your milk with your favourite caffeinated chai tea mixture and strain before mixing with your choice of hot cocoa to find yourself immersed in the comforting spiciness of chai and velvety richness of cocoa.

Turmeric Spiced Hot Cocoa: This is a perfect pairing for those looking to warm the soul with turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties and receive a boost of antioxidants all while enjoying a classic favourite. This drink is easy to make by adding 1/2 a tsp-1tsp of turmeric powder to an already blended hot cocoa. Instantly, you’ll achieve a perfectly rich and earthy hot chocolate with added health benefits.

Rose Hot Chocolate: Roses are known for their mood-enhancing properties, and this concoction is perfect for those looking to promote some self-love or spoil the special people in their life this Valentine's Day. Simply infuse your milk with some dried rose petals before mixing with hot cocoa, or grind your dried rose petals up ultra-fine and mix with your powdered cocoa for the perfect heart-warming floral cup of joy.

If a classic hot cocoa is your preferred treat but you want to add some extra health benefits, try incorporating your favourite unflavoured supplements. Concentrated mushroom tinctures or powders are a great option for those looking to upgrade their beverage to have added superfood benefits or try the Harmonic Arts 5 Mushroom Chocolate Elixir. Adding a healthy fat such as coconut oil can make your beverage creamier and adds a higher nutritional value. Lastly, experiment around with different sweeteners such as honey, infused honey or manuka honey. Whether you're seeking relaxation, looking to experiment with flavours, or create your own style of elixir, our shoppe offers a diverse range of herbs, spices and superfood blends for you to add to a cup of anything your heart desires! Send us your favourite herbal hot chocolate recipe to possibly see it featured in our Instagram stories in the future!
