Servings: 1


  • Blender


  • 1 cup favourite plant-based milk (or regular ol'milk if that's your thing)
  • 1 tablespoon raw cacao or pure baking cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1-2 teaspoon honey, maple or one of two soaked dates 1 teaspoon = hard core health, 2 teaspoon = tasty ;)
  • 1 teaspoon your favourite adaptogen (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or powder


  • Gently heat one cup of your favourite plant-based milk
  • Add milk to blender with all other ingredients.
  • Blend until frothy...but always take care blending hot liquids! Best to put a towel over the blender and secure top with your hand while blending.
  • Dollop with a scoop of coconut whip and sprinkle with chocolate shavings or cacao nibs if you like.


PS...how to make coconut whip: Chill a can of full fat coconut milk, along with a metal bowl and the beaters in the fridge. Scoop out just the thick cream top and whip like whipping cream. Genius.
