Quick Fix for that Late Night Sweet Tooth!

The Metabolic Effect (ME) inspired cocoa drink has saved me from my horrible late night sweet tooth! I'm usually not a huge sweets person, but at night oh my gosh, sometimes all I want to do relax with something sweet like a mocha (also hits my coffee-loving-tooth as well!) and watch FRIENDS.

The cocoa drink is so simple! Know that its more important that you stick with the main ingredients then you can figure out your own measurements to taste. Here's what to do!


  1. Heat 8-10oz of water. 
  2. Mix the following ingredients well:
    • 1-2 TBSP Unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder
    • No calorie sweetener (I use Xylitol) Keep adding until its the perfect sweetness for you
    • Almond milk (optional) Sometimes I'll add a splash of almond milk. You can add it warmed up or just cold from your fridge.

Just a heads up, if you're not used to dark chocolate or don't enjoy a little "bitter" taste, I'd definitely start out adding a little more almond milk. Also, I've added these ingredients to black coffee and its delicious! The key to this drink (in my opinion) is to really make it your own. Also, the best thing about the ME cocoa drink is that you can drink it over ice or hot and it hits the sweet tooth perfectly! There's no reason to feel guilty, unsweetened organic dark chocolate is actually very good for you!
Let me know what you think :)

  1. mmmmm sounds delish!!! :) and I am loving your blogging platform. Being healthy is something that I find expensive and confusing but I'm working on it slowly but surely :D

    1. People who find it "easy" at first are lying (or extremely gifted and lucky! lol) It honestly takes a bit of trial and error but the sooner you try and figure out things you like, the easier and less expensive it gets I promise! :) Would love to help if you have any questions!
