Cooking Time


Ingredients You Need for Hot Chocolate With Maca and Tonic Herbs [Vegan]

  • 8-oz unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup or stevia to taste (a little goes a long way)
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder
  • 2 Tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch chili powder
  • 1 dropper reishi extract (we make our own from wild-harvested reishi, but you can purchase from a company like Dragon Herbs)
  • 1 capsule each Rhodiola and holy basil (I like Gaiam herbs for the flavor and potency. Open the capsules into the drink before serving)
  • 2-4 Dandies vegan marshmallows to garnish each cup (optional)

  1. You can store the blended drink in your refrigerator and heat it as desired. It will keep nicely for a week or two. It is also delicious iced or as a base for a smoothie with a banana or two!
  2. Because there is caffeine in the chocolate and maca is a very energizing substance, I do not recommend drinking this late at night.
