Superfood Maca Hot Chocolate Recipe
This superfood Maca Hot Chocolate combines cacao powder, maca powder, cinnamon, cayenne, and sea salt, with almond milk and a touch of maple syrup to make for a rich and healthy hot drink. Gluten-free, vegan, refined sugar-free.
- 2 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 4 tablespoons cacao powder (or unsweetened cocoa powder)
- 1 tablespoon maca powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 pinches sea salt
- 1 pinch cayenne powder
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey)
- 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
In a small saucepan over low heat, add almond milk. After giving the almond milk a few minutes to warm, whisk in cacao powder, maca powder, cinnamon, sea salt, and cayenne.
When large clumps have dissolved, whisk in maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk periodically until mixture is smooth and desired temperature is achieved. If you find you prefer it sweeter, add more maple syrup as desired.
Remove from heat and pour into mugs. Top with coconut cream or other toppings if desired.
