To celebrate the release of The Global Paleo AIP Kitchen cookbook I’m sharing one of it’s 120 recipes: Peppermint Hot Chocolate by Kate Jay of Healing Family Eats. This rich and decadent hot chocolate alternative is a delicious way to warm up, and it also soothes digestion! 

I sincerely hope you’re as excited about this new healing resource as I am. For the full 411 on The Global Paleo AIP Kitchen check out my post: The Global Paleo AIP Kitchen Cookbook: Allergen-free Eats from Around the World.

Now off to France for some hot cocoa!9715A23D-0133-49C4-BFB3-76D5B06F854CCarob powder → Carob powder is used as substitute for cocoa. It’s a rich source of polyphenol antioxidants and flavonoids that have been shown to reduce oxidative stress. You can find it in health food stores or online here.

Coconut milk → Coconut milk is a rich source of healthy fats and contains powerful antimicrobial properties to help fight seasonal infections. Choose coconut milk that’s labeled as “BPA-Free” to avoid harmful plastics and that doesn’t contain gut-hurting stabilizers. Save some money and buy clean coconut milk in bulk here.

Water → We’re 75% water so water’s kinda important. Tap water has all kinds of scary stuff in it & cheap plastic filters (even if they’re BPA-free) just don’t cut it when it comes to filtration. That’s why we saved up & got a Berky water filter. I know Berky’s are a bit spendy, but believe me: they’re worth it.

Salt → I use Redmond’s Real Salt in all my cooking because it contains minerals & trace minerals necessary for good health. Also, it’s delicious. I used to buy it in small packs but now I buy it in bulk, which saves me some cash & cuts down on waste.

Peppermint oil → Peppermint can relieve indigestion and alleviate IBS symptoms. Use any food-grade, okay-for-interal-use peppermint essential oil. If you don’t have any or don’t want to use EO internally, you can omit it. If you’d still like a peppermint flavor, use steeped mint tea in place of the water in the recipe.
