Power Cocoa

After an early lunch I was feeling sluggish with a hankering sweet tooth that would not quit. Because I don’t keep sweets in the house I was on a mission to create a lil treat with what I had. And so commenced the pantry hunt. With some creativity and determination I satisfied my sweet craving AND got a boost of energy with the power of maca! Maca root is an amazing superfood that is normally sold in a powdered form. It supports hormone balance, energy, stamina, libido, and personally, I think it improves concentration as well. With a great nutty flavor I knew it would be perfect with the raw cacao I also scrounged up. Give this suped up cocoa a try for when you need a boost AND some sweetness in your day.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 Cups Almond Milk
2 Tbsp. Raw Cacao
1 Tbsp. Maca Powder
1-2 Stevia packets

Directions:
Optional first step: place all ingredients in a blender bottle or even a blender to really integrate the ingredients and froth it up! Then place mixture in a small sauce plan to heat through, and serve! OR first heat the almond milk in the pot and add in the powders in slowly while stirring. Enjoy!
