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!!
"Chicken" Broth

Make a cup of simple miso broth with just the paste & warm water; add Bragg's and Veg-It Spike to taste. I add granulated dulse, too, just to be getting some sea veg's, but it doesn't alter the taste so don't go out and buy it :) My daughter, whose favorite food in the whole world is chicken noodle soup and has eaten a can for bkfst for literally weeks in a row, approves of this combo!


Hot Chocolate In The Raw

4 C almond milk*
4 ounces raw cacao beans
1/2 C raw honey
1 vanilla bean, scraped
1 cinnamon stick, broken into pieces
1/4 tsp nutmeg


*Instructables: How to Milk an Almond

Blend ingredients on high speed until smooth and creamy. If you have a high-powered blender, you can continue blending until the mixture begins to heat up. Or, you can warm your hot chocolate using one of the methods I mentioned here — either using a double boiler or a mason jar submerged in hot water.

Pour into your favorite (pre-warmed) mug and enjoy! Wanna really warm your tum-tum? Make like a Mayan and sprinkle in a wee bit of cayenne pepper before serving. Fire down below!
You can also warm it up in your vitamix blender, just blend it until the beaker starts to feel warm to the touch.

Hot  Cacao

 

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. 

Enjoy!

 

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...........
