Serves: 1 serving
Warm and cozy hot chocolate pairs beautiful with fortifying herbs for the ultimate fall cocoa drink!
  • 8 oz. unsweetened coconut milk (we use So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or stevia to taste (a little goes a long way)
  • 1 Tablespoon maca powder
  • 2 Tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch chili powder
  • 1 dropper reishi extract (we make our own from wild harvested reishi, but you can purchase from a company like Dragon Herbs)
  • 1 capsule each rhodiola and holy basil (I like Gaiam herbs for the flavor and potency. Open the capsules into the drink before serving)
  • 2-4 Dandies vegan marshmallows to garnish each cup (optional)
  1. Mix all the ingredients together in a blender and heat in a saucepan before serving.
  2. You can store the blended drink in your refrigerator and heat it as desired. It will keep nicely for a week or two. It is also delicious iced or as a base for a smoothie with a banana or two!
  3. Because there is caffeine in the chocolate and maca is a very energizing substance, I do not recommend drinking this late at night.
