Dairy Free Cacao Coffee

Wake Me Up, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Raw Cacao, Coffee, The Best Morning Drink

This is my current favorite morning drink that is easy to change up to suit your needs: you can make it without coffee and make a delicious hot cocoa instead, or use different milks, and make it as sweet as you like.

This is what I add to mine:

1 shot of coffee

1 mug-full of homemade almond milk

1 heaped tsp raw cacao (or high quality cocoa powder)

1 tsp coconut oil

Optional: ½ -1 tsp maca powder, ½ tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp maple syrup (or date syrup, honey, coconut sugar; to taste)

Directions:

1. Take the mug you’re going to drink from and fill it with your chosen milk leaving a bit of space at the top for frothed milk.

2. Add to a saucepan and gently heat on a low simmer.

3. Add your coffee and coconut oil until melted. When your milk reaches desired temperature, remove from heat and using a hand blender, froth the milk. At the same time, add in the rest of your ingredients.

Ingredients such as raw cacao and honey have nutritional properties that can be diminished with high heat so it’s best to add these last to retain their benefits.

4. Pour into your mug, top with sprinkled cacao and/or cinnamon and enjoy.
