Winter Lover Cacao recipe
This Raw Hot Chocolate is a staple in my house in the winter months. Not only does it warms you up on a cold winter night, it also strengthens your immune system with the medicinal powers of mushrooms and enhances your mood. As we all know Cacao is a natural stimulant, it increases circulation and stimulates the brain activity, relaxes your muscles and of course produces that amazing feeling of euphoria that we all LOVE !
This mix can be made in a big batch so you can have it at hand and make when ever you need it. It makes around 16 cups.
- 2 1/2 cups cacao powder
- 8 tsp cinnamom
- 2 tsp chaga mushroom powder
- 2 tsp cordyceps powder
- 1 tsp reishi powder
- 4 tsp Hymalayan salt
(optional 4 tsp cayenne to spice it up! but if you are sharing with your kids i would just add a little bit to your own cup at the end)
Mix all ingredients very well and with a ladle strain so there are no crumbs. If you don't have all the mushrooms just use one, or any of your preference.
Blend one TBS in with a cup of your prefered activated nutmilk , warm up and drink! Your kids will love this one :)
