When you think of hot chocolate, perhaps like me, you envision sitting near a fireplace on a cold winter night with friends and family. Hot chocolate is one of the world’s favorite beverages when it comes to the thought of relaxation and being warm. The problem with hot chocolate is that we typically use hot chocolate mixes instead of making it from scratch. Why is that a problem? Because of the ingredients in many of these hot chocolate mixes. We’re going to introduce you to Choclevate, the healthy and smart alternative to hot chocolate.

Chocolate and cocoa are generally healthy. Mainly because of the polyphenols and flavanols in cocoa. Healthline.com claims that cocoa can help reduce inflammation and cholesterol levels, improve symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes, and aid in weight control. They say that cocoa can improve nitric oxide levels reducing high blood pressure, lower risk of heart attack and stroke, improve blood flow to the brain, and improve mood and symptoms of depression. Healthline.com even states that cocoa may have cancer-protective properties. It sounds like a superfood, perhaps a wonder food.

So, the problem with hot chocolate or hot cocoa is not chocolate or cocoa. The problem with drinking hot chocolate is the other ingredients in the mix.  If you were to look at, as we have, the most popular hot chocolate mixes on store shelves you’ll find ingredients that will surprise you.

Please feel free to read the details below of what we found in the majority of popular hot chocolate or hot cocoa mixes on the market. Otherwise, skip to the summary below.

Ingredients Found in Popular Hot Chocolate Mixes

  • Cocoa processed with alkali or Dutch cocoa- Alkalizing cocoa substantially reduces the flavanols in cocoa which produces many of the health benefits described above. So, it somewhat negates the good things that cocoa can do for your body. When you see “Dutch cocoa” it is alkalized cocoa.
  • Corn syrup solids- this is sugar which negates the weight control benefit of cocoa.
  • Partially hydrogenated soybean oil- Hydrogenated oil is one of the trans fats used to better preserve foods. Trans fats are known to increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes. Partially hydrogenated soybean oil further negates the health benefits of cocoa.
  • Hydrogenated coconut oil- just because it’s coconut oil, it isn’t any better for you after being hydrogenated. It has the same negative effects as any hydrogenated oil.
  • Dipotassium phosphate- Dipotassium Phosphate has long been used in processed and packaged foods and was considered safe until a study was published in 2012. This study stated that all foods containing phosphates should be labeled as dangerous to public health. According to their research, accumulating phosphates in the body can cause organ calcification in people with renal failure, and even in people without kidney problems.
  • Mono and diglycerides- Glycerides (mono, do, tri) are generally known to increase blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  • Carrageenan- Some evidence suggests that carrageenan triggers inflammation, gastrointestinal ulcerations and that it damages your digestive system. In 2016, the National Organic Standards Board voted to remove carrageenan from their approved list. This means foods made with carrageenan can no longer be labeled “USDA organic.”
  • Acesulfame potassium- Also known as Acesulfame K is an artificial sweetener and is usually found in a blend with other sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose. There is disagreement over the health effect of Acesulfame K. Some researchers claim it can disrupt metabolic processes and interfere with appetite regulation, body weight, and blood sugar control. And, concerns have been raised about its potential to cause cancer and affect the development of babies during pregnancy.
  • Sucralose- marketed under the brand name Splenda™, sucralose is highly controversial. In 2016 The Center for Science in the Public Interest downgraded the safety rating of sucralose from “caution” to “avoid”. Sucralose may increase blood glucose and insulin levels. A study on sucralose and the GI microbiome found that sucralose altered the gut microbiome by decreasing beneficial bacteria by up to 50%. When heated, Splenda™ was found to degrade and release harmful chloropropanols at high temperatures. Chloropropanols are toxic and may lead to cancer and infertility in men.

What We Found

What we found when looking at the ingredients that most cocoa or hot chocolate mixes have is that one by one the amazing benefits of cocoa are negated by the mix of ingredients manufacturers use.

Calories and Sugar Content

Even if you ignore the facts about the ingredients listed above, you still should recognize the calorie and sugar content in most well-known hot chocolate or hot cocoa mixes. Generally speaking, there are more than 100 calories per serving. Some go lower in the 70-calorie range. Some hot chocolate mixes contain as much as 27 grams of sugar with an average of 14 grams of sugar for all hot cocoa mixes.

Choclevate- The Healthy and Smart Alternative to Hot Chocolate

Choclevate was introduced to the market in late 2017. It was formulated by Alternative Labs in Ft. Myers, FL for Elevacity, Inc. The principal of Alternative Labs, Kevin Thomas, has over 39 years of experience in global research, development, and manufacturing of natural alternative healing remedies.

Choclevate is a very tasty cocoa mix. You put a scoop in a cup and add hot water. It’s just as simple to enjoy Choclevate as other mixes but it has all-natural ingredients and doesn’t contain any of the potentially harmful ingredients listed above. See the ingredients in Choclevate below.

Kai's Story

"Kai has been “discharged” from 6 different childcare facilities. The special needs teacher at his school said she would need to call a social worker to come into class and work with him because he was just “too much” for her and her assistant to handle.⠀

After a medical evaluation, the doctor prescribed Ritalin for ADD/ADHD, extreme anxiety, behavioral disorders, and borderline autism. To say I felt defeated doesn’t even begin to cover it.⠀

Then miracles began to happen. 🙌🏼

I took a chance on an all-natural, brain-boosting and mood-enhancing supplement that has changed the game for my little man! 🍫

He has seen massive improvements in the last 2 months. 🤩 Not a single incident report. 🙌🏼 All of his test scores have gone up by more than 30%‼️ And, he’s the happiest I’ve ever seen him. 😁

Of course, he still has his moments. He’s only 3-year old, but I couldn’t be more thankful. It’s changing every area of our lives. Kai takes 1/4-1/2 scoop of Choclevate every day INSTEAD of Ritalin. The results are nothing short of miraculous.

And yes, I checked with Kai's pediatrician before giving him Choclevate."

Choclevate Ingredients List

Items to note on the Choclevate ingredients list to the left are 0 grams of sugar, and it has Niacin giving you 50% of the Vitamin B3 needed each day. Some of the items listed in the proprietary blend that you might not recognize are nootropics that assist the body in releasing the "happy hormones" that we discuss below. So, you can see that Choclevate is a healthy alternative to the cocoa mixes you might generally buy in your supermarket. But what makes it smart?

What Makes Choclevate Smart?

Choclevate is a sister product to the very popular Elevate Smart coffee. It has the same nootropic ingredients that help the brain and body release 3 of the “happy hormones, dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. Not only do you get the great taste of cocoa in a very healthy mix, but you also get the benefit of an elevated mood, more sustained energy, better focus and clarity, and curbed appetite cravings.

To get the full impact of all 4 happy hormones, oxytocin being the 4th, you’ll want to add XanthoMax. XanthoMax is a capsule containing Xanthohumol, found in the flower of the hops plant. And, it’s the only natural substance known to help the body release oxytocin known as the “love hormone”.

"Dec 22nd (2019) will be 2 years since my son was killed in a motorcycle accident. Since then I have reclused myself to my house for the most part. We didn’t go out to eat or shopping because I would have an anxiety attack, I couldn’t be around people. All I wanted to do was cry. I forced a smile just so I wouldn’t be asked so many questions of ‘what’s wrong?’.

Dec 6th (2018) my wonderful friend Lisa went out of her way to get me samples because it had made such a difference for her. We have become very close, she lost her daughter 6 months after I lost Cody.

On Dec 7 I drank the hot chocolate, I felt great that day. My eyes felt bright and I was SMILING. I felt happy. I had forgotten what that felt like... truly happy! I smiled all day. I called my husband and ask if he wanted to go eat and shopping! He was in shock that I asked but of course, said yes! I had a wonderful time and was so happy that I did not panic or have anxiety AT ALL!! The next day, another great day, worked then went OUT to eat.. no problems, still smiling and not having to force it! Day 3 same thing!! I was officially a believer then!

Also, a pair of jeans I could not comfortably zip and button went on with ease and were actually a little loose!

I LOVE CHOCLEVATE!!!!

I need to add this... I had open-heart surgery 5 years ago and being on bypass threw my system for a loop. I have been in premenopause ever since, hot flashes, etc. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and my whole body has hurt for 5 years with little to no relief. Since I started drinking the hot choc my inflammation has improved tremendously and I actually FEEL like doing things!!!

You’ll feel so much better when relaxing by the fire on a cold winter’s night. Choclevate - the healthy and smart alternative to hot chocolate!

Choclevate Healthy and Smart Alternative to Hot Chocolate

From Jenn H.

"Choclevate has done AMAZING things for my husband and I. Both of us have been able to lose so much weight and feel 10x better.

I started my journey with Choclevate in March 2019 at 160 pounds, size 12 pants.
My husband started his journey with it in May 2019 at 230 pounds, size 38 pants.

As of today, we both are feeling SO much better and much happier with our bodies. We still have some way to go to get where we want to be totally, but it’s all a work in progress.

I’m currently (9 months later) at 125 pounds in a size 2!!!
He is 208 pounds in a size 34!!"
