❤️ If you’re looking for a cozy, delicious drink that will help you sleep like a baby tonight, I’ve got just the thing for you! the “Sleep Tart” a Dark Chocolate and Tart Cherry Hot Chocolate – it’s tart yet chocolaty just like the name suggests😴🍒
This recipe is a fun riff on the popular Sleepy Girl mocktail, and it’s super easy to make! All you need is 1 to 2 ounces of your favorite dark chocolate (the darker the better, in our opinion!) and 8 to 12 ounces of tart cherry juice. Simply heat the two ingredients together until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is hot and steamy, and then pour it into your favorite mug. Voila – instant comfort! 😍
You could add in some coconut milk if you wanted it a little creamier but I like it less not more.
Want a little bit of winter spice? Garnish this with a cinnamon stick.
Packed with antioxidants and other nutrients that are great for your health. Dark chocolate is rich in magnesium and flavonoids, which can help reduce inflammation and improve heart health, while tart cherry juice is a natural source of melatonin, which can help regulate your sleep-wake cycle.
