This recipe is very basic and you can add whatever you want to make it more interesting. A little cinnamon or maca or mushroom powder or all of the above! The coconut oil makes it nice and frothy and the only sweetener is dates which adds some fiber and iron! The cacao is a great source of antioxidants (think anti-cancer and anti-aging) and magnesium! I would love to hear your thoughts on the recipe and see your variations! Make sure you comment here or on Instagram and hashtag #hellowholefoods!

hot cacao
serves 1


2 cups unsweetened plant milk
2 medjool dates, pitted
2 tablespoons *raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter


bring plant milk to a simmer over medium heat. if your dates are hard, add them to milk while it heats up to soften them. add warm milk and the rest of the ingredients to blender and blend on high until smooth and frothy! pour in your favorite mug and enjoy under a cozy blanket!

* I like to use raw cacao powder because the beans are milled at low temperatures to protect the nutrients and flavor. I’ve been using Divine Organics or Navitas, both available on Thrive Market.
