Oh YES. This is the ultimate cold weather indulgence.
I love chocolate, but I cannot handle too much, nor can I have it too late at night. The solution to my cravings for sweet, hot, holiday beverages? This White Hot Cocoa.
White Hot Cocoa
1 -1/4 cups warm water
1/2 cup raw cashews
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons grated cacao butter
1 tablespoon maca powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1-1/2 cups very hot water
In a blender, combine the 1-1/4 cups warm water, cashews, maple syrup, cacao butter, maca, vanilla and salt. Blend until the cacao butter melts and the entire mixture is very smooth. Divide between two large mugs. Top each mug off with 3/4 cup hot water. Stir and serve. Enjoy the sweet comfort.
