The Hot Cacao Blend is an antioxidant-rich herb blend with Chaga Mushroom and Cacao to create a nutrient-dense version of the delicious classic comfort of hot cocoa. Mushrooms naturally support and balance the immune system, while Cacao and Maca support energy and stress resiliency. A hint of Cinnamon and Vanilla bring warmth and sweetness to this delicious, guilt-free chocolate blend.
A good friend of mine shared this recipe with me years ago. I absolutely love making this pie. You can be as creative as you want with this recipe. I have made a pumpkin, chai and mint chocolate version of this delicious recipe. It is very simple and no baking outside of the crust. It will quickly become one of your favorites! Just a simple reminder that food is medicine. What we put into our bodies is what we get out of them. Watch me live on KGW8 in February to learn how to make this pie first hand!
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 ½ cups Almond Flour for the crust
- 3 TBSP of Coconut Oil for crust
