Kids and Adults do love MILO

Who doesn’t love a good milo? Who has read the ingredients???

A hot chocolate on a cold winters day or night? We often have carob or raw cacao, cinnamon and maca with a dash of vanilla with some almond milk (we use the automatic milk frother machine….perfect) But when I can remember or more so when I’m willing to give up some of my nuts and seeds I make this drink mix.

My tip- grab a little bit of boiling water and make a nice paste then mix with milk or ‘nicecream’ or sprinkle on pancakes, on cappuccino’s on your dinner if you love and miss the malt and chocolate taste.

Superfood Choco Powder

_MG_3780

INGREDIENTS

3 tablespoons linseeds (meal is fine and this is the one that is the hardest to grind)

2 tablespoons organic activated sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons organic activated sesame seeds

2 tablespoons organic activated pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1/3 cup organic activated almonds

1/4 cup organic activated brazil nuts

1/4 cup organic activated cashews

1/4 cup organic activated pecan nuts

1 cup raw organic cacao powder (or carob to avoid caffeine will taste a little different)
2 Tbsp Maca or Mesquite Powder
1 tsp Liquorice Powder (optional for sweetness)

1 cup organic rapadura sugar (alternatively you can omit sugar completely and add a dash of maple syrup and a ¼ tsp vanilla extract if needed to the drink once mixed)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Grind nuts and seeds in food processor or even better a Thermomix (i wish) or a coffee grinder to a fine powder (think Milo)

2. Add Cacao/ Carob, Maca/Mesquite, Liquorice Powder and Rapadura Sugar to mix in a jar and shake shake shake!

3. Test with Milk of choice for taste.

*When serving use 4 teaspoons to a glass of milk

* Store in the fridge or freezer.

*If you don’t activate that’s fine, use raw nuts and seeds or grind and then roast for an even more amazing flavour.
