Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate {Vegan + Paleo}

Cozy Hot Chocolateย jazzed up with the seasonal flavors of sweet pumpkin spice and tart cranberries

Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is the perfect holiday drink to keep you all warm and cozy!

Y’all know hot coffee is my beverage of choice, but I can’t realistically drink it all the time and be able to sleep well. If I had it my way, I would drink at least 5 cups a day but that wouldn’t be good for many reasons which I won’t say on this blog.So what other cozy beverage do I drink that keeps me alert during late night studies without the caffeine???

ย Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate may sound strange, but is in-fact a dreamy combo!!!

Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is the perfect holiday drink to keep you all warm and cozy!

You all know how to make hot chocolate so I wouldn’t wanna just put a random hot chocolate recipe on the blog, but a new and improved fall-inspired hot chocolate that will make you addicted and all warm and fuzzy inside. But hey, don’t worry, it’s pretty dang healthy for ya too, so if your like me, you can make two batches a day for yourself and not feel bad!

Also shout out to Trader Joe’s for selling sugar pie pumpkins for only $1.99 and just being awesome in general.Cranberry Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate is the perfect holiday drink to keep you all warm and cozy!
