Dandelion Lotus~Malted Mocha~ Detoxifying and Energizing
If you’ve followed us on Instagram for awhile now you may have noticed that we love making and drinking superfood cacao elixirs! And so we wanted to bring our daily ritual out into the world!
This delicious dandelion lotus malted mocha can be used as a coffee substitute. We use roasted dandelion root that had a delicious nutty coffee flavour. You can prepare it hot or on ice!
Raw cacao should not be confused with the typical processed/roasted cocoa that fills that majority of the supermarkets. As per usual, the processing of the cacao beans means they lose a lot of their beneficial properties. Raw cacao, like raw honey, still has all of its incredible benefits in tact! Yay! Raw cacao also has a more bitter dark chocolate taste (which I love) but it can be rounded out with the addition of a teaspoon of raw honey 😉
Raw cacao is considered an ancient superfood. It is loaded with antioxidants (hello beauty food!), magnesium (something we could all use more of) and iron (also something many of us need!). On top of all that, raw cacao is HEART OPENING and for this reason is often used in sacred ceremony. It invites the deep bliss that is inherent in our DNA... the bliss of who we are lives in our heartspace. Unlock it! Open the the door to your own heart and make yourself at home. Have you ever sat with your hot chocolate in ceremony? Now is your chance 😉😉😉
Dandelion strengthens the liver, boosts the immune system, and soothes digestive disturbances.
Sacred Lotus Pollen is considered nourishing to the heart and calming to the mind. Lotus pollen is thought to balance the endocrine system, reduce anxiety, calm the mind and promote a healthy metabolism. It has a sweet vanilla honey flavour.
Maca Root~ has a malty taste and is scientifically proven to boost energy, improve mood, fight free radicals, promote hormonal balance, and is also a well know aphrodisiac💓
Lucuma~ deemed ‘Gold of the Incas’ is a Peruvian super fruit! It has a caramel/brown sugar taste and is rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, zinc, calcium, fiber, potassium, and iron. It is also rich in beta carotene which supports healthy looking glowing skin!
Ashwangandha~ Helps reduce cortisol aka has stress/anxiety relieving properties. Supports adrenal glands. Boosts mood and energy! It is known as nature’s ‘chill pill’😉
Ginger~ improves digestion, has anti inflammatory properties, and is high in antioxidants that help fight free radical damage.
The best way is to throw everything together in a blender. I also throw in 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil as the fat in the oil gives a nice foamy froth at the top! You can also use a couple squares of dark chocolate (my favourite way!) or a small amount of ghee for this effect as it’s the fat that makes the foam! This makes it a superfood creamy latte! Yum!!! Another option for the froth is to throw in a few cashews instead of the coconut oil! Just some elixir hacks we’ve discovered over the years! 😘
Superfoods can be quite costly... and if you’d like to extend the usages of this precious powder you could always use 1 teaspoon of Dandelion Lotus and 1 tablespoon of plain cacao powder instead! It would be like a booster superfood shot to your regular hot chocolate!
