No smoothie today, too cold for that! Instead I wanted to share a hot chocolate recipe, from Mind Body Green, that has become one of my favorites.This is totally meant to replace coffee, but who are we kidding, me replace coffee? I may skip coffee on the weekends, but on a weekday it is part of my morning routine.
Note: I add a couple of drops of liquid stevia for sweetness.
- 1 mug almond milk (or your favorite substitute)
- 1 heaping teaspoon maca powder
- 1 heaping teaspoon cacao powder
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- Cacao nibs
Carefully heat your almond milk to a simmer. Then blend it for a few seconds with your maca and cacao powders.
Pour the liquid into your favorite mug and sprinkle some cacao nibs and cinnamon on top. Enjoy!
