Indulge in a Guilt-Free Winter Warming Hot Cacao

As the weather cools, it’s time to get cosy and indulge in a winter-warming cacao AKA hot-chocolate.

There are endless nutritional benefits of using cacao over cocoa. It is high in magnesium and many other minerals (which aren’t present in cocoa due to the processing) plus, it has 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries.

If you’re a chocolate obsessed, hot-chocolate loving soul, this super simple recipe makes a deliciously warm cup of cacao infused with your choice of either Wild Orange or Peppermint essential oils.


·       Your desired amount of cacao melted with filtered hot water (we love Pana Chocolate)

·       1/4 cup coconut sugar

·       2 drops each of either Wild Orange or Peppermint essential oil

·       Organic coconut or organic oat milk  

Put the lid on the jar and shake. Then your mix is ready to stir in any nut milk of your choice!

(We recommended coconut milk)
