Yummy night cap elixir Full of Nutrients and Adaptogens.
Mrs Toddy loves a sweet treat in the evenings. Before going to bed there is nothing more satisfying that a hot chocolate just like our mothers used to make as children.
we love to make our hot chocolates mde from ceremonial cacao filled with adaptogens to help us sleep through the night.
Ceremonial Cacao has many benefits. It is high in anti-oxidants, and fully of good fats as well as being a grounded energy source. I purchase my Highbrations Organics.
My recipe for my bedtime night cap elixir is:
1 Cup of mylk of your choice. ( I use home made oat milk).
2 teaspoons of ceremonial cacao
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Grind the dates and cashews in a food processor. (I use the thermomix on speed 10)
Add the cacao, cinnamon & nutmeg into the processor with the dates and cashews. Blend until evenly blended.
Place the ground mixture into a saucepan and add the mylk slowly and stir so the blended mixture evenly disperses into the mylk.
Stir until the mixture is evenly spread and heat until warm enough for you to enjoy.
I cook the entire process in the thermomix for 3 mins heat 70 on speed 2.5. (Tip and the end crank the speed up to 10 so the mixture goes fluffy like a store bought hot chocolate).
Sprinkle cinnamon ontop and enjoy.
