Our Raw Cacao Drinking Chocolate duo is truly decadent and all you need to make a decadent and super healthy hot chocolate ( just add milk of choice)
I literally make this every other day, if not every day! It is easy, delicious, so good for you and really comforting in the winter.
Sometimes I will add a pinch of cinnamon, or some Maca powder but the two ingredients in this duo are the main items needed and will make a lovely mug of chocolatey goodness!
Raw Cacao is very bitter, some people love to drink it like this but some people are not accustomed to this and is nothing like the hot chocolate they are used to! This is why you can use Coconut Sugar as a natural and delicious sweetener.
The more chocolate buttons you add, the thicker the Hot Chocolate, it all comes down to preference. I measure the milk in the mug I am using, add to the pan, put the heat on, and start to add buttons once the milk is piping hot, I stir until these are fully melted into the milk, I then add Coconut Sugar to taste. (a great big dollop of coconut cream works a treat also!)
The health benefits of the Cacao plant products are never ending. Cacao is absolutely loaded with antioxidants, great for heart health, full of magnesium and calcium, and contains ‘Anandamide’ – known as the ‘Bliss molecule’ which creates a feeling of euphoria.

Coconut sugar also has a range of benefits, it is much lower on the glycemic register than regular white processed (cane) sugar, it is also beneficial for gut health as it contains natural prebiotic’s and probiotics. Its is also packed with vitamins.

What do I taste like?
There is absolutely no added sugar in our Drinking chocolate buttons so they are very bitter, they are chocolate at its purest form before anything nasty and un-natural is added. This is why we pair it with the coconut Sugar, so you can create a sweet drinking chocolate to the sweetness level that you like.
Coconut sugar does not taste like coconuts, but is very caramel like, rich and sweet.
Will my hot chocolate taste like coconuts?
No, not at all, unless you choose to add a nice dollop of Coconut cream on top 😉
Is this dairy free?
Yes, 100% – as long as you use a dairy free milk.
Do I have to add the coconut sugar?
No, the drinking chocolate is available to purchase alone, but we have made this bundle due to the fact that pure Cacao drinking chocolate has no sweetener whatsoever so it is very bitter, coconut sugar is a healthy sugar alternative so they make the perfect pair.
Are these products Organic and GMO free?
Yes, all of our products are 100% GMO free, 100% Organic, contain no nasties, just sustainably sourced natural products ♥
