Raw Hot Chocolate

I have been making this every day since I discovered it on My New Roots. This drink makes me so happy and energized.

I have modified it, as I did not have Maca or some of the other ingredients, and I used less milk, so it is very chocolate-y. My Maca will be arriving soon and I can’t wait to add it. I tried making it with less coconut sugar but it didn’t work. I made the almond milk myself – can you tell how proud of that I am? Boy, has my life changed! Proud of home-made almond milk.

Raw Hot Choc

2 Tblspn raw cacao
1 Tblspn coconut sugar
1 cup almond milk
small pinch of cayenne powder
pinch of cinnamon (to taste)
small pinch of sea salt


Heat the almond milk slowly in a saucepan. Add all the ingredients. Whisk. Before it is boiling, remove from heat. Pour into a mug. Savour.

Note – I have since modified this to two tablespoons of coconut sugar and 3 heaping tablespoons of cacao, along with 1 teaspoon of maca powder. It, also, works cold/iced. Make the hot drink as per usual, pour over a glass of ice. Yes.
