Raw cacao is a lot like chocolate (it comes from the cocoa bean), except that it’s in powder form, leaves out the cacao butter (aka the fat content), and is cold- pressed instead of roasted at a high heat which leaves the healthy enzymes and fiber intact and makes it one of nature’s superfoods. Both healthy and delicious, cacao is the perfect ingredient for a high-fiber hot chocolate that nourishes the good bacteria in your gut environment.
1 cup of almond or coconut milk (try making it from scratch!)
1 tablespoon of raw cacao, to taste
1 teaspoon of stevia or honey, to taste
Cinnamon or peppermint extract (optional but recommended)
Warm the nut milk on a low setting and whisk in the raw cacao and stevia or honey. Don’t be scared to adjust the ingredients in this recipe to fit your tastebuds. As soon as it’s hot, it’s ready to go. Experiment with how chocolatey and sweet you like it!
