Raw Hot Chocolate


Nothing warms the belly and spirit quite like a cup of rich and creamy hot chocolate. By using raw cacao you also get that blissful, buzz from the potent compounds found within it such as anandamide and phenethylamine (the bliss and love chemicals). Not to mention all of those fabulous antioxidants. You'll find this recipe by Nikki Stokes of Eating Vibrantly very simple to make. While it's yummy as is you could also try adding a dash of cinnamon, cayenne, or even maca powder for an interesting superfood-infused twist with a South American flare. You can also blend in some melted coconut oil or cacao butter if you desire an even richer outcome.
