Description

This Healthy Maca Macadamia Hot Chocolate recipe is energy boosting and tastes great too! Perfect for a gentler pick-me-up than coffee. Not to mention maca has many other wonderful health benefits.


Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon maca powder
  • 1 teaspoon raw sugar, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/3 cup macadamia nut milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cinnamon, to add on top, optional

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, maca powder, and sugar. Whisk in water until a paste forms. Note: You may need to add a bit more water.
  2. Whisk in macadamia nut milk until evenly combined. Note: You may want to add the milk slowly and work the clumps out. It may seem like a mess for a minute, but just keep whisking, and you’ll get there. Trust me!
  3. If you’re using an Epica steamer, set aside 1/3 cup of the chocolate mixture. Next, heat up the remaining mixture either stovetop over low heat or in the microwave until it reaches your desired heat. About 5-7 minutes stovetop or 1-1 1/2 minutes in the microwave.
  4. Meanwhile, pour the chocolate mixture you previously set aside into the frother and froth according to product directions.
  5. Pour the main portion of hot chocolate into a mug and top with the frothed hot chocolate. Sprinkle with cinnamon if you’d like and enjoy!

Notes

Note: I used the Milkadamia barista formula macadamia nut milk so I could use my frother to make it a little fancier

I used Navitas Naturals maca powder and Milkadamia barista style macadamia nut milk
