Hello from my living room, where I’m dressed like I haven’t left the house in 3 year while I sip my delicious 3 ingredient hazelnut hot chocolate. It’s really starting to look like this year has taken a toll on me. But I couldn’t be happier and more proud of the woman I am becoming.

A few years back I would always start something and then quit it after a while. When I started this blog back in 2018, i had told myself that it was gonna be different this time. It was, I stuck through it and here I am today., still creating, still loving what I do, and still so happy to share all these amazing recipes with you. So thank you for having been here with me through this crazy journey.

But back to today’s recipe!

This is the best healthy 3-ingredient hazelnut hot chocolate recipe ever!

I have always loved the combination of hazelnuts, and chocolate. It actually reminds me of the flavor of Nutella, and lord knows I am a Nutella addict! I actually just posted a healthy, gluten-free, and vegan hazelnut chocolate bar recipe that you need to check out asap if you love the combo too.

But after I made that I decided that I should probably make a drink that had hazelnut and chocolate in it because nothing taste better than that combination if we’re being honest and that’s how this drink was born 🙂
