The question I get asked the most since I live in England is why I moved to the UK, which most of the times has a double meaning; why the *** did you leave the hot weather of Barcelona to move to a country where it rains and it’s cold ten months in one year??.
Since I always like to put a positive spin on things, I normally say that living in England allows me to enjoy my favourite little pleasure throughout the year, such as:
- Stews and warm soups
- A nice comforting coffee or tea
- Hot chocolate drink
When I lived with my parents, stews and warm soups were removed from my mum's meal planning from May to October and instead, she'd make Gazpacho or Vichyssoice. Throughout Spring and Summer my usual coffee after lunch would turn out to be an iced coffee; and the last thing you would ask the waiter it's a hot chocolate drink in a bar-terrace in Las Ramblas in the middle of August !
Oh hot chocolate... I love you, and if it's accompanied with some churros even more! But let's just ignore the churros for a minute and let's make it healthy ok?
This beetroot hot chocolate is so delicious, I would make it every day!
A soon as I saw the recipe on The Green Life blog last February, I wrote it down on my recipes-to-do list and tagged it as "any season" because, seriously, this is not a hot chocolate drink for Christmas or Bonfire night, no way! It's a real healthy treat packed with superfoods to enjoy any time of the year.
Guys, there ’s nothing better than a mug of this warming beetroot chocolate on a Spring day in England.
