Vegan Spiced Hot Chocolate

29 Oct

spiced-hot-chocolate

Best news ever: this version of the every-so-popular hot chocolate is actually good for you! Free of dairy, sugar and other harmful ingredients, this hot chocolate is made with raw cacao, warming spices, almond milk and energizing maca powder. I would say it’s the perfect hot drink to nourish yourself on a cold day.

Ingredients (serves 2):

–       almond milk 4 cups

–       raw cocao powder, 3 tbsp

–       maca powder 1 tsp

–       cinnamon powder 1 tsp

–       chilli powder ½ tsp

–       Natural sweetener of your choice

Method:

Slowly warm up all the ingredients except the sweetener in a small pot. I actually blend the ingredients in a blender first, just to make sure it’s stirred well.

In order to keep all nutrients alive, don’t cook the hot chocolate, but just heat it to drinking temperature.

Add some sweetener of your choice, like raw honey or maple syrup.

Enjoy and warm up!

LOVE To You

15 Feb

Love is a process in which ego is lost and infinity is experienced.

“Love is a creative energy, an experience of one’s Self within oneself. Love knows no pain—no sacrifice is too much for it. Love is an absolute one-pointed state of mind, focused on the well-being of the other person, who is called lover or beloved.”

In love we honor. In love we grace people. In love we support. In love we sacrifice. In love we give. In love we elevate. In love we pray.

~ Yogi Bhajan

A very lovely Valentines Day to you and yours. 

Nectar Yoga.
