Drinking Cacao - 2 Ways
I posted a video on instagram of my hot cacao and lots of people said yes to a recipe so here it is! I'll also share another amazing smoothie using this and a few other superfoods!
+ Milk - dairy or non-dairy, I used rice or oat milk.
+ Cacao Powder (1-2 teaspoons depending if you want it really chocolatey, i would suggest start with one and taste until you're happy)
+ Coconut Sugar (Again, as with the cacao, start with 1 tspn and then add to taste.)
+ 1 tspn of coconut butter
+ I added ashwaganda and rhodiola powder but you really don't need to, i'm just seeing how I get on with them!
+ Fill a small mug up with half milk and half water
+ Pour the liquid into a saucepan and heat gently
+ Add powders and coconut butter and stir together
+ Add the coconut sugar
+ Have a quick taste and make sure you're happy with the quantities.
+ Pour into your favourite mug and enjoy!
You don't want to drink too much of this as it's super powerful and might leave you feeling a bit over-stimulated!
Cacao and banana smoothie:
Again, another super simple recipe, just bung all the ingredients into a blender, mix and enjoy!
+ 1 Banana
+ 1/2 glass of Milk (dairy or non-dairy)
+ 1/2 glass of water
+ 1 tspn cacao powder
+ 1 tspn nut butter
I added these extra powders but you don't need to do this to make this smoothie!
+ 1/2 tspn ashwaganda powder
+ 1/4 tspn rhodiola powder
+ 1/2 tspn baobab powder
Blend them up and feel the goodness!
Let me know if you try either of these.
