A warm morning drink is a great way to start the day. The problem is that most outsource that opportunity to a fast-food chain or something on the go! The energetic resonance of the producer is imbibed in the drink. If the drink was made in a rush, with lots of synthetic sweeteners, then no wonder people feel jittery as a side effect of the product.

What if we are left to feel healthy, supported, and happy because of our morning drink routine? Take the challenge and try the recipe below or innovate on your own for Cacao Ceremony Mornings:

 

Cacao Drink Recipe

In a blender, mix some of these ingredients and others you enjoy on high for 60 seconds: 

 2 cups 170F Hot Water

2 tablespoons Cacao Powder

1 tablespoon Coconut Oil

2 teaspoons Local Organic Honey

1 teaspoon Maple Syrup

pinch of cinnamon

tiny pinch of Himalayan Salt

1/2 cup Plant Milk Creamer

The average chocolate bar is not just cacao and natural ingredients. It is a diluted form of cacao that has any number of aggregates that are not very digestible for most people. Take back the bar with some recipes that are better tasting and healthier for the body: 

Homemade Raw Cacao Bar Recipe

1/4 cup coconut oil (can substitute cacao butter or coconut butter, finely chopped)

1/2 cup organic cacao powder 

1-2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup/coconut or date sugar

1 pinch sea salt

1 tablespoon Honey

Add optional spices: cinnamon/cardamon/turmeric+1 pinch of black pepper/cayanne

Add optional toppings: 1 tablespoon cacao nibs/1 tablespoon nut butter/ 1 tablespoon nuts/ 1 tablespoon Dates/ 1 tablespoon shredded coconut/ pinch of dried rose petals or herbs/ 1-2 Drops of food grade peppermint oil

Making the Bar: Melt coconut oil/cacao butter very slowly over low heat or in a double boiler and stir in all ingredients until smooth. Pour liquid into a chocolate mold or parchment lining a baking dish OR paper cupcake liners. Freeze. That’s it! Melt and combine the ingredients of your choice in order to have a much healthier chocolate bar in your freezer at all times with the flavors you love most!
