Raw Hot Peppermint Cacao

On days like today, we love hot chocolate. Today we made it using cacao powder and heated in our high speed blender while processing. This is 2-3 servings.

1 cup almond milk
1 cup water
2 TBS cacao powder
1 TBS peppermint leaves (1/2 - 1 tsp peppermint extract)
1 tsp lucuma (adds sweetness and enhances the flavor. This is also a wonderful mouth and digestive healing plant)
2-6 pitted medjool date (depending how sweet one likes it)
a dash of salt
a dash of cinnamon

Directions: place all the ingredients in a high speed blender (we use the Blendtec soup setting), blending until desired temperature.

Garish with cacao nibs or cashew whipping kreme
