Vegan Mofo: Raw Hot Cacao
Is there anything better on a cool autumn day than a warm cup of sweetness?
Raw Hot Cacao (inspired by Ani's Raw Food Kitchen)
This will fill two mugs, plus a little to top them off after a few sips ;)
3 c. Water
1/3 c. almonds* (or cashews)
1/3 c. dates
1/4 c. cacao nibs
touch of agave or raw coconut sugar to taste
Put all ingredients into blender* and blend for 7 minutes or until desired temperature is reached. Enjoy!
*Soak almonds for 6-8 hours ahead of time. This will make them easier to digest. They do not need to be completely dry before use in this recipe.
*I used a Vitamix for this recipe. Please let me know the results if you make this in a standard blender and I'll share the info.
