TIP OF THE DAY: Banana Hot Chocolate

Warm, comforting, and another way to enjoy
gourmet chocolate. What could be better?

Purée a ripe banana and add it to hot chocolate. One banana is enough for two eight-ounce cups (it stretches further if you want just a little banana flavor).

Add 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a grind of fresh nutmeg to the banana purée; then divide the mixture evenly between the mugs.

Pour the hot chocolate over it and stir well.

You can garnish with a side of banana chips; or for kids, marshmallows and graham crackers.

We’re not saying this is a health drink, but it combines potassium and antioxidants and it sure is a mood elevator.
