Naked Chocolat Almond Mylk
Stimulate your body with antioxidants, mineral rich cacao, carob, maca, cinnamon and pure vanilla bean. This potent blend provides sustained energy, supports the endocrine and immune systems and contributes to hormonal balance and optimal well being, and not only that; it tastes amazing too!
My Chocolat Almond Mylk takes just 5 minutes to make and what I love about it is that you can enjoy it ice cold as a quick pick me up vitality drink or as a warm and nourishing Hot Chocolat that will enliven the senses and heal the body, mind & soul. You will notice that the ratio of almonds to water is 1:6 ….I like the lightness of this combination with the subtle hint of sweetness that comes from the dates and vanilla bean in the Naked Chocolat.
This recipe makes about 1 1/2 litres of purely delicious chocolate goodness. I make a large batch and fill it into glass jars that I keep in the fridge. If I want to enjoy my chocolate almond mylk HOT – I just pour 1 cup of into a small pot and heat gently on the stove until it’s lovely and warm – then savour the goodness.
What’s great about Chocolate Almond Mylk:
This is actually an amazing recovery drink that is bursting with antioxidants and essential minerals. Naked Chocolat is rich cacao, carob, maca, cinnamon and pure vanilla bean – ingredients that help to provide sustained energy and to support the endocrine and immune systems. Cacao is rich in magnesium and antioxidants that assist with muscle repair and recovery. Almonds are high in magnesium and potassium that is essential for muscle and nerve function.
