Superfood + Protein + Spiced Peppermint Hot Chocolate

I love going through old recipes. I found this one last night thanks to Sophe Jaffe, creator of Philosphie.

The ancient Mayans believed that cacao was a gift from the gods and, with all of the amazing health benefits of this delicious superfood. Raw cacao, the unprocessed predecessor of chocolate, is rich in detoxifying antioxidants, and the flavonoids have also been shown to help prevent arterial plaque formation and improve circulation. This rich, minty hot chocolate gets its smooth texture from highly nutritious nut milk and its subtle sweetness from immunity-boosting honey.

Philosophie’s Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend adds an extra pop of protein plus a variety of potent superfoods, including a dose of finely milled reishi mushroom powder, known to have an ever-growing list of healing properties. And a splash of vodka ensures that this warming drink will leave you feeling merry and bright!

Ingredients:

1 cup non-dairy milk

1/2 cup water

3 tbsp Philosophie Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend or raw cacao

1 1/2 tbsp sweetener of choice

a small pinch of salt

1/4 tsp peppermint extract or 3 drops peppermint essential oil

1-2 ounces of vodka

1 ounce of chocolate ( raw, vegan carob will also work)

Steps:

Blend all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate and vodka. Pour the liquid into a small saucepan, add the chocolate and slowly bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in the chocolate, and add one ounce of vodka. Simmer for another minute or so, keeping an eye on the chocolate to make sure it doesn’t burn. Remove from heat, and add more vodka if desired. Enjoy warm or chilled.
