Immune Hot Cocoa
Nov 05, 2020
Gluten-Free + Vegan + Refined Sugar-Free
Makes 3-4 cups
1/4 cup cashews
3 pitted dates
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 cup water
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 pinch of black pepper (If you use Pique you don't need the pepper because it is fermented for increased curcumin bioavailability)
optional - 1 pinch vanilla powder, dash of vanilla essence, sea salt
- Soak cashews for 4 hours with pitted dates (you can sub the cashews with plant-based milk at the ready e.g. oat, coconut).
Add into a high-speed blender the soaked cashews, dates, cacao powder. Blend until smooth.
- Pour into a saucepan, add the turmeric + black pepper, stir thoroughly and warm to desired drinking temperature. For a little more immune support, I sometimes add 1/2 tsp of the 5 defenders powder by Real Mushrooms platefulhealth for 10% off - (please check with your doctor if you are pregnant, or before giving to kids)
