Mexican Hot Chocolate
Now that it is getting colder here, my regular icy smoothies aren’t as appealing. So, I have switched to hot chocolate. I love this mixture, it is filling and tastes delicious. I am going to multiply the quantities of the dry ingredients and make a hot chocolate mix and all I will need to add each morning to the blender will be the powder, seeds, sweetner and water. I may even soak, dry and grind the seeds and add them to the powder. If I knew more raw foodists, I would give the powder away in jars for the holidays! I guess I’ll just keep all of mine!!!
1 teaspoon each: maca, carob, mesquite
1 tablespoon each: lucuma, cacao
smallest amount you can pick up with your spoon of cayenne pepper
sweetner (agave, honey, date syrup), to taste
2 tablespoon sunflower seeds, soaked
1½ cup hot tap water, not over 100 degrees
1. Drain the sunflower seeds.
2. Put everything in the blender and blend until perfectly smooth.
