Mate Chocolatte

We recently raved about Guayaki's Yerba Mate tea which has an earthy flavor and, just this past week at our local Kroger, we discovered this chocolate variation. What a great idea! If you have a craving for hot chocolate this winter but don't really want to drink your calories (or are leery of the ingredient list that looks like a chemistry set) this is a great alternative. One tea bag has 4 calories and it is a blend of organic yerba mate, organic cocoa (seed), organic nutmeg, organic cinnamon, organic stevia, and organic clove. The box suggests having it plain or, if you wish, adding milk and sweetener but we found adding anything to be unnecessary. It was quite satisfying all by itself.
