Children deserve the enjoyment of hot brewed beverages like everyone else, but moms know that good parenting depends on good management of our children’s intake of stimulants like sugar and caffeine. Hot chocolate, the favorite hot drink to offer children instead of coffee, is loaded with sugar to offset cocoa’s bitter flavor. Combined with the stimulants found in cocoa, hot chocolate can send kids’ blood sugar soaring.

Teeccino’s Mediterranean flavors with dates and figs provide a slightly sweet brew that can be accented with chocolate and lightly sweetened to taste. With far less cocoa per serving, Teeccino lets you offer your children hot beverages that will delight them without compromising their nutrition.

Ingredients

  • 6 oz brewed Teeccino, any Mediterranean nut or chocolate flavor
  • 1-2 tsp honey, agave syrup, or maple syrup (to taste)
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder or chocolate syrup
  • 4 oz hot milk or non-dairy milk
  • Whipped cream for topping (optional)

Directions

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until frothy.  Pour into mug.  Top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder if desired.
