Adaptogenic Hot Chocolate

Share

This Adaptogenic Hot Chocolate is such a special recipe – low caffeine, low sugar and full of adaptogens. Adaptogens are plants, herbs and certain types of mushrooms which support the body’s natural ability to deal with stress. These include reishi mushroom, maca, ashwagandha and he shou wu. This hot chocolate is a perfect replacement for coffee or matcha.

To make this, start by blending ingredients together. I make my hot chocolate with dairy-free milk, but if you decide to use hot water instead of milk, you may want to add the tocos and coconut butter for creaminess.

To make Adaptogenic Hot Chocolate, you will need the following ingredients:
