Superfood Hot Cocoa

BySarah Axtell, ND December 12, 2016

There is nothing more comforting than a cup of hot cocoa on a cold, wintry day. Put down the Swiss Miss and swap it for this hot cocoa packed full of superfoods- cacao powder, coconut oil and raw honey. And as an added energy booster, consider adding maca powder.



Serves 2

  • 2 cups almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 heaping Tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 2 tsps coconut oil
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional as an added energy booster)


Heat the almond milk on the stovetop on medium heat. Whisk in the raw cacao powder, honey,  coconut oil, and maca (if using) so that all ingredients are thoroughly mixed, approximately 1-2 minutes. Enjoy!
