Bees & Cacao Trees Morning Recipe

In this recipe, we use Boundless Belize Pure 100% Cacao.

However, you may use any pure cacao and add the special ingredients below.

Instructions

Prepare your cacao as normal (click here for a refresher).

Then, add these ingredients before you froth/blend/stir. 

Ingredients

  • Boundless Belizean Pure 100% Cacao: 8-12 discs
  • Dairy milk alternative: nutmilk, hemp milk, etc: 1 cup
  • Local bee pollen: 1/2 tsp 
  • Cinnamon: add to taste
  • Sea salt: small pinch

Bee pollen is a complete protein, rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, and antioxidants. It is rich in B vitamins which are essential for a healthy nervous system and powerful detoxifiers, especially to the brain. We have found that pairing cacao with the pollen of local bees is a potent way to connect with the land you are on, and give thanks to the bee family that does so much for us and our food systems.

Cinnamon is a powerful spice that’s been used for thousands of years. It is high in antioxidants, promotes heart health (along with cacao!), supports the brain, and is anti-fungal/antiviral/antimicrobial. Among other benefits, cinnamon is also excellent for stabilizing blood sugar, which is important as you begin your day to avoid cravings, energy crashes, and mood swings. Cinnamon also provides a hint of sweetness.

The dairy milk alternative in this recipe (as compared to using plain hot water) serves to thicken the recipe and create a more nourishing experience.

Sea salt provides an extra dose of healthy minerals (along with cacao!) and electrolytes to awaken your body-mind. It also stimulates hydrochloric acid and certain enzymes, which will help you kickstart your metabolism and digestion for the day.
