Cup of hot chocolate, surprisingly good for body and soul, a powerful "pick-me-up" any time of day.

  • 4 oz. coconut milk, unsweetened, full-fat, organic, canned
  • 4 oz. water, purified
  • 2 1/2 tbs. cacao powder, raw, organic
  • 1 tsp. coconut sugar, organic
  • vanilla extract, organic to taste

Add water to coconut milk and heat on stove. Pour liquid into your favorite cup. Add coconut sugar and cacao powder and stir. Taste and decide whether you want vanilla.

This drink makes 1 CARB. It is healthy not only due to the fat burning Lauric acid from the coconut. The Cacao powder is a Mayan Superfood, and supplies fiber (4 g), antioxidants, iron, and magnesium. It also contains the comfortable stimulant Theobromine (different from caffeine and without the bad effects).

These are the effects of Theobromine: gentle mild effect | very slow onset | long lasting | 50% in bloodstream after 6 to 10 hrs | increases feeling of well being | mild antidepressant | gentle, smooth, sensual stimulation | stimulates cardiovascular system | stimulates muscular system | mild effect on central nervous system | almost no one is allergic | not addictive | no withdrawal symptoms | mild diuretic | stimulates the the kidneys. Breast feeding mothers who enjoy this will get very happy and awake babies! :-)
