Vegan Almond Milk Hot Cacao With An Adaptogen Kick a.k.a. Just As Good (Well, Almost) As The Sleep-Away Camp One!

Vegan Almond Milk Hot Cacao With An Adaptogen Kick a.k.a. Just As Good (Well, Almost) As The Sleep-Away Camp One!

Hi munchkins!

<3

YOU GUYS, IT’S GETTING FREAKING COLD OUT. OKAY? And I don’t know about you but when it gets cold out, I get all kinds of hot chocolate cravings.

Hot chocolates take me back to those FREEZING COLD NIGHTS at sleep-away camp when I was younger sitting around a bonfire with my best girls! The only difference between those hot chocolates & the one I whipped up tonight is that the ones at sleep away camp were slightly A LOT MORE unhealthy, filled with mini marshmallows, real freaking dairy milk chocolate, real damn white sugar & kinda processed! The one I made tonight is slightly A LOT MORE healthy, filled with maca instead of marshmallows, real freaking dairy-free ORGANIC CACAO POWDER, not processed at all & naturally sweetened with pure organic vanilla extract & Ceylon cinnamon!

I guess you can say things change overtime… BUT LET ME TELL YA, when you get used to this way of eating & this lifestyle, a hot cacao like the one I made tonight tastes like a freaking treat & a half! Now, this is not to say that the ones from sleep away camp wouldn’t do the trick just right tonight… BUT YA KNOW, something’s gotta give & there’s ALWAYS a way to make a healthier alternative that will make you FEEL GOOD & still give you that CHOCOLATE FIX!

(I won’t lie… I might just have to give in to one of the good ‘ol real hot chocolates at some point this winter though!)

ANYWHO, this babe of a mug is absolutely-positively PERFECT for the cold winter months we’re about to brave. MY LOVES… WINTER IS COMING!

So what’s so DAMN GOOD about this hot chocolate?

  • Vegan & gluten-free!
  • Refined sugar-free!
  • Rich & indulgent!
  • Naturally sweet!
    Totally customizable!

    • Want it to be more bitter? Add more cacao & less vanilla!
    • Want it sweeter? Add more vanilla, some raw organic honey or some pure organic maple syrup!
  • Super easy to make, like in 5 minutes!
  • Plant-based!
  • Energy-boosting, hormone balancing, helps manage stress & anxiety, mood enhancer & cures the fatigue (thanks to the maca!)

My loves, YOU WILL NEED:

  •  3/4-1 cup of Califia Farms organic unsweetened almond milk;
  • 1 tbsp. Organic Traditions cacao powder;
  • 1/2-1 tsp. pure organic vanilla extract (depending how sweet you want it) &/or pure organic maple syrup;
  • 1/2 tsp. Eco Ideas yellow maca;
  • Ceylon cinnamon!
  • OPTIONAL TOPPINGS: Cacao nibs, more Ceylon cinnamon or some dairy-free whipped cream if you wanna be über-adventurous!

NOW, for that HOW-TO? 

This is so easy it’s almost a joke. BUT I’M STILL TELLING YOU HOW TO MAKE IT!

  • Add all the ingredients to a small skillet & heat over medium-low heat until smooth, hot & all the clumps of powder have been broken down & combined!
