favourite plant-based milk
(or regular ol'milk if that's your thing)
raw cacao or pure baking cocoa
honey, maple or one of two soaked dates
1 teaspoon = hard core health, 2 teaspoon = tasty ;)
your favourite adaptogen
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.
