HOW TO MIX CEREMONIAL CACAO:

1. Heat 2 dl of water or vegan milk until hot, but don’t boil, and add into a blender.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of the cacao. (If you bought a block, chop it with a knife and cutting board.)

3. Add a sweetener of your choice. We love dates or 1- 2 tbsp of raw honey.

4. If you bought our blend/s see no 5.

Additionally, for the 100% ceremonial cacao: add your favorite spices and superfoods. As an inspiration: Sea Salt, Cayenne, Cinnamon, Cardamon, Reishi, and/or Maca. Only your imagination can stop you here.

5. Optional, add additional amazing fats like Coconut Butter, MCT oil, Tahini, or Ghee for a next-level frothy supercharged cacao that will keep you full for hours.

6. Blend until smooth and frothy (approximately 20 seconds).

7. Each time you enjoy a cup, we recommend slowing down, taking a breath, and gaining clarity on your intentions.
