A healthier festive drink

Forget kick starting a new healthy lifestyle in January why not start it now?! January often seems the most logical time for us to implement new healthy eating and exercise regimes but the truth of the matter is that we are really just putting off something that could be done now.

It doesn’t have to mean a complete lifestyle over-haul; it could be baby steps towards a larger goal. One simple switch could be reducing your caffeine intake.  The perfect way to help with this could be to try a new low calorie, low caffeine, hot chocolate drink on the market- LockhartMartin Cocoa Infusions.

These drinks are made for winter, creating all the indulgence, comfort and flavour a hot chocolate would normally provide but are a far healthier choice. They make a great alternative to tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

The drinks are made from cocoa bean shells after they have been farmed, fermented and roasted. The drinks contain a plethora of health benefits including antioxidants, amino acids, magnesium, iron, zinc, it contains theobromine a naturally occurring stimulant which raises serotonin levels and increases feelings of well being. 

They come in 3 different flavours- Cocoa, Cocoa and Mint and Cocoa, Orange and Assam Tea (don’t worry the tea quantity is minimum to keep the caffeine content down).

To make the drink steep 1-2 teaspoons of shells in hot water or place in an infuser for up to 5 minutes then strain and pour. The aroma is one of rich chocolate but the taste is lighter, more refreshing & cleansing.
