Delicious Hot Cacao by Christa Lyn Dise
1 cup of raw almond milk
1/2 tsp. raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp. maca powder
1/2 tsp. raw agave nectar
1 pinch ginger powder and Cinnamon (optional)
if you want it warm for the holidays, stick it in the dehydrator or just warm it on the stove. Hope you enjoy it!!
2 cups almond mylk, (I made mine a little more creamy this time with less water)
2 TBsp raw cacao powder
2 Tbsp grade B maple syrup (or can use Agave)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
Dusting of cacao on top when finished
Put all in high speed blender and blend until warm and frothy. Pour into cup reserving foam to spoon over top of mug. Dust over top with cacao powder.
Alternatively blend in regular blender and then heat in either dehydrator or on stove until warm. You want to be able to keep your finger in the liquid without it being too hot to have to pull it out. Then your enzymes are good and safe.
THIS WILL WARM YOU UP!
I just made the most yummy tonic drink thing EVER!
First I tried my hand at making coconut mylk for the first time.
2 c coconut flakes and 4 c water blend in Vitamix
strain through a nut mylk bag.
In a pot on the stove i gently warmed 2 cups of the strained mylk
Then i added 1 tbsp organic red rooibos tea, some grated nutmeg,a few cloves, and 1/4 tsp of vanilla powder and cinnamon
Poured through a strainer and we loved it and it really heats you up.
love & gratitude...........
2 or 3 chai tea bags, decaf.
1/2 quart filtered water
1/2 warmed nut mylk of choice (I use almond )
raw honey to taste
2 tsp. coconut oil (sometimes coconut butter is good)
sprinkle fresh grated cinnamon
Heat the water, add the tea bags and coconut oil and let it steep for a few minutes, add warmed nut mylk and sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy! Makes 1 quart...enough for two to share...or one if you need lots of warming.....
