This drink is slightly sweet, creamy, exotic and the health benefits are awesome! I made a paste from the powders and spices mixed with coconut oil and I keep it in a jar. A tablespoon or so of the paste mixed with a cup of coffee and a splash of full fat fat coconut milk makes a serving. If you're not into drinking coffee, you can use your favorite plant based milk instead.
Maca is is an amazing plant that is used to increase stamina, strength, balance hormones and is thought to have aphrodisiac qualities. It is an adaptogen, meaning it is used to balance bodily processes and adapt to stress.
This drink offers anti-inflammatory properties, is strengthening, grounding and soothing. The coconut oil adds good fats and the coconut milk helps it to be as creamy as cows milk.
1 tablespoon each:
raw cacao powder
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp coconut oil
mix all ingredients into a paste and store in a small glass jar. When ready to make your latte:
add 1 tbsp (or to taste) of the paste to 6 oz coffee and 2 oz full fat coconut milk to a saucepan and heat for vet medium heat until simmering. Add a touch of maple syrup (or your favorite sweetener). Pour into your blender or bullet and blend on high until creamy and frothy. Pour into your favorite cup and enjoy!
