There are times I just want to take a break from drinking coffee, or that I simply feel like the comfort of some warm chocolate. This is my choice!
The cacao is delicious, nectar sweet, and the cayenne pepper just gives it that added zing. A truly delicious blend.
Cacao is considered a sacred bean by the Mayans, and offers wonderful benefits It is a true gift from nature hence the sacredness to this cup of absolute joy and connection.
There is an alchemical affect with the blend of these ingredients, the cinnamon and nectar, pepper and chocolate, it's hard to put words to what it does but you will feel it at your first sip.
2 cups filtered or clean water
2 tsp cacao powder
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tbs coconut cream
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (go for more if you like it hot!)
1 tsp coconut nectar (or more to suit your own sweetness)
Makes 2 cups
What to do:
Place cacao powder and spices in a small pot, add water and put over a small flame or low heat. Gently stir until water becomes warm, add coconut cream, oil and nectar until all ingredients are melted, keep stirring until they are also well blended.
Try not to overheat the drink, this should be served warm rather than boiling. The cayenne pepper will do the job of warming you up!
