Featuring Aroha mug by Keith Brymer Jones
More and more I have been noticing coffee isn't working so well for me and during lockdown I came up with this replacement. It's bitter, delicious and has a subtle 'kick'.
What is raw cacao powder?
Raw cacao is a less processed form of cocoa powder. The beans are dried at a low temperature before being ground. With less processing the cacao powder is higher in minerals and antioxidants and it also has a richer, deeper chocolatey flavour. However, as this drink uses boiling water the cacao will no longer be considered raw.
Makes 1 large mug | Equipment needed: blender
Place the cacao, boiling water, spices and coconut sugar into a blender or Magic Bullet. Give it a whizz to blend the ingredients. Then add your chosen milk. Blend for a further 1 minute. If you prefer a super hot drink you may consider warming the milk before adding. I'm usually in too much of a hurry!
Pour into your favourite mug and enjoy.
