We’ve written out the step-by-step instructions for you below, too.

**Note: do not use dairy milk (which compromises the health benefits and effectiveness of ceremonial cacao).

First things first, let’s cover the basics of preparing a hot cup of ceremonial cacao.

Foundational Cacao Recipe

  1. Heat your water or dairy milk alternative (almond milk, coconut milk, tea, etc) as you would for your normal daily cacao ritual: 170 degrees or below a full boil to ensures you don’t heat out all the powerful nutrients in the cacao.
  2. Choose your favorite Pure 100% Cacao (if you want to add your own ingredients) or Enhanced 100% Cacao
  3. With ceremonial cacao mousse, you want a thicker consistency with more "body". So, you have two options: 1) add more cacao discs than you normally would OR 2) keep your normal dose the same and add less water. The typical recommendation for a hot ceremonial cacao drink: 5-12 discs for an everyday dose with a 1/2 cup of water & 12-20 discs for a ceremonial dose with a 1/2 cup-1 cup of water. 
  4. Next, blend it or froth it. Make it creamy! If you want to add extra ingredients—spices, healthy sweeteners, superfoods, herbs—now is the time!

Ceremonial Cacao Mousse: Additional Steps

  • Pour your hot cacao into your mug, glass cups, or other containers.
  • Place the cacao in your refrigerator overnight. Let it thicken!
  • Enjoy your creamy ceremonial cacao mousse the next morning with gratitude and intention!

  • *Note: If you are repurposing your leftovers from your normal cacao ritual, try adding a few more discs to your leftovers and re-blending it. This will thicken the consistency. 

    By using less water, cooling it, and setting it up as a mousse, this treat lasts three days longer than keeping the cacao in normal liquid form.

    So, you have plenty of time to enjoy it and could make several batches for days in advance!

    “Chocolate Drink and Mousse. We are addicted to this amazing product…so blessed to be able to taste the pure delight. From its humble beginnings to our table, it makes me feel so comforted content, and peaceful. It’s a whole food, so my body is saying thank you from every cell. We also make chocolate mousse from leftovers, I sometimes add a drop of pure peppermint oil, little honey, or mushroom powder, so the chocolate can take on so many flavors from vanilla bean to cardamom. Thank you so much, Jonas and wonderful team of passionate people.” - Christine
