After Celine was born, i realized how important eating healthy was. If i wanted a chance at having enough energy to make it through the day-without coffee, I was going to have to really hone it in. Whenever I feel like i’m living underwater or just can’t get into the groove of things, I drink this.
I used to portion it out but this mix is the best thing to ever happen to my #momlife. This is my Chocolate Energy Latte, a bit like the ‘No Coffee Coffee’ but much better. Even Ryan said ‘i’d drink that’. So, you know. I consider that a great endorsement.
If you’re wondering what all of these mystery ingredients do I’ll give you a tiny bit of info. 1. Maca-great for energy and hormone balancing 2. Cacao: great for antioxidants and energy 3. Tocos: lots of beautifying minerals and makes things taste so smooth 4. Cordyceps: great for boosting immunity 5. Reishi: the king mushroom, also great for boosting immunity to viral infections such as the flu. 6. Cinnamon and cayenne: antioxidants and fires up the body and cuts down on mucus in the body. Plus, it makes it taste all Mexican hot chocolatey and covers up the flavors of the maca/mushrooms.
All of this and none of the acidity and addiction that comes when you drink coffee 👊🏼. Chocolate Energy Latte
1/2 cup cacao
1/2 cup maca
1/2 cup of tocos
2 tbsp + 1/2 tsp cordyceps
2 tbsp + 1/2 tsp reishi
1.5 tsp cayenne
2.5 tsp cinnamon
Whisk all ingredients together. Store in a mason jar or airtight container in the pantry. Shake well before every use to evenly distribute the ingredients.
To make your latte or tea, shake up your jar or stir with a spoon, then take 2-3 tbsp of mixture and add it to a blender with 8-12 oz of boiling water and 4-8 oz. of homemade non dairy milk. Turn the blender on and whip it up till it’s frothy. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
