Vegan Superfood Hot Chocolate with Free People


With the season of festivities and feasts underway, we were thrilled when our friends at Free People shared a recipe to satisfy our sweet tooth and offer some healthy benefits. Their Vegan Superfood Hot Chocolate is packed with antioxidant-rich almond milk, energy-boosting maca root, and a few pinches of spice that enhance the immune system. They call  it superfood, we call it reason enough to blend up a batch tonight. See the recipe below, and then stop by Free People's BLDG 25 blog for more on the health benefits of this winter warmer.

Vegan Superfood Hot Chocolate
c/o Free People

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup soaked chia seeds
2 tablespoons raw cacao
1/2 tablespoon raw coconut sugar
2 teaspoons maca root powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
Pinch cayenne powder

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and mix on high until you reach an even consistency. Heat over the stove or in the microwave, pour into a pretty mug, and enjoy! This recipe makes one serving, but you can add in extra almond milk to dilute. You can also vary the amount of sugar as desired.
