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
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)
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.
