Deep Bliss~ Cacao Elixir~ with Chaga, Maca, Lucuma, Ashwagandha, and spices
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 batch is extra ginger-y!!!😇
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 😉😉😉
This blend also contains the amazing chaga mushroom. You can find this mushroom growing in Canada on birch trees! It doesn’t really taste like a mushroom.. more like caramel, vanilla, bitter coffee in my taste buds... 😇 This amazing superfood is also loaded with antioxidants! It also supports/stimulates the immune system, fights inflammation, slows down the aging process, may reduce fatigue, and is said to lower blood pressure. It’s amazing!
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
Cinnamon~ was once considered more valuable than gold! It is also rich in antioxidants, has anti microbial properties, helps fight candida in the body and is anti inflammatory 😘
Directions for use: mix 1 tablespoon of powder with 1 cup hot liquid ( I use 50% water 50% oat milk), and sweeten with honey or maple syrup to taste.
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 Deep Bliss and 1 tablespoon of plain cacao powder instead! It would be like a booster superfood shot to your regular hot chocolate!
Other ways to incorporate the Deep Bliss powder would be to sprinkle it on yogurt, add to smoothies, baking, bliss balls, whatever!
And no, it does not taste like our Deep bliss aromatherapy potions! Lol. It’s just the first name that came to mind as I was sipping on it!🤗
