The addition of ginger to your traditional hot chocolate recipe does more than just add a spicy kick. Ginger is not only a great detoxifier, but it also has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe gastrointestinal and digestive issues.
- 3 oz semisweet chocolate, broken into pieces
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped.
- Put chocolate pieces in a saucepan and add 1/2 cup of milk. Warm over low heat and stir constantly to avoid burning.
