Sometimes I like a little heat.
Sometimes I like a little sweet.
Sometime I like them together.
I think the person that first paired chilies and chocolate was a genius. According to The History Channel, that honor goes to the Aztecs. They were the first to take the cacao bean and mix it into a paste with water, honey, chilies, vanilla and other spices to make a chocolate drink. Now recipes for Mexican hot chocolate are quite common.
If you’re a fan of chocolate with a little kick you’re going to love my Chocolate Cherry Bomb Protein Shake. The combo of chocolate whey protein and tart cherry juice are perfect for workout recovery. The addition of a small square of Dagoba Xocolatl Dark Chocolate adds some extra antioxidants along with a hint of fire. It’s so delicious you’ll want to chug it but the heat will make you slow down.
