Raw Kava Hot Chocolate + A Little Self Love

Dana Cutolo

Sometimes we run ourselves to the ground and need a little recovery. The past couple of weeks I’ve truly overworked myself. Mostly I’ve been hard on myself and being emotionally burnt out is sometimes harder to deal with than physical exhaustion.

Ive always dealt with minor depression and anxiety, so I find myself burning out quicker than I should. I know that when I feel this way I should start taking supportive adaptogenic herbs and eating regularly.

One of my favorite recipes to calm down at night is this raw cacao drink- a version of hot chocolate that had essential fats for the brain, magnesium to calm your nerves and kava for anxiety and overthinking.

 Recipe

1 tbsp Raw Cacao Powder 

1/2 cup coconut cream

3 tbs maple syrup or coconut sugar

1/4 cup water (or strained kava water)

2 full droppers of kava kava tincture (I love herb pharm brand) 

 

how to

- heat the coconut cream + water + maple syrup and whip to froth

- add the cacao powder and whip some more

- take off heat and add kava, stir and enjoy

 

** if you prefer to make kava water, use that in place of the 1/4 cup water!

I like to enjoy this with a nice face mask and a movie.
