This beautiful mix takes a traditional hot chocolate and gives it a nutritious twist. Not only does it contain the amazing benefits of raw cacao powder, but with the added benefits of Maca and Withania, which are both adaptogens, and have traditionally been used to help balance out hormones, mood and increase energy. Mesquite has also been used to balance out blood sugar.
I personally love it for helping my mood when I am feeling flat, due to the amino acids. Made as an Elixir, it adds the amazing benefits of fats to give your mitochondria a boost.
