There once was a time when all people of the land tuned into the constant dance of Mother Earth by observing the animals, the plants, the movement of the stars, and the changes in the weather; through this, they too followed the natural rhythms of life.
It has been apparent for some time now that there is a reawakening of these old ways as more and more elders come out to share what they know.
With this new knowledge, we can begin to realign ourselves to the cycles of the earth.
We’ve just moved from Summer into Fall, so what does this mean?
The Fall is a call from the Earth to begin turning inwards, reflecting, rebalancing, and moving back down into our roots by slowing our pace.
Get Rooted & Nourish Mind, Body, & Spirit
In this recipe, with the loving aid of Cacao, Dandelion Root, and coconut oil we begin to recollect ourselves and give our bodies the nourishment they may need - especially in these times of such major change. Though things may not be slowing down in the outside world, we can at least give ourselves some time in our day or week to slow down and honor the shift of the Earth.
In this recipe, we use Glowing Guatemala Pure 100% Cacao.
However, you may use any pure cacao and add the special ingredients below.
- Glowing Guatemala Pure 100% Cacao: 8-12 discs of cacao
- Roasted Dandelion Root Tea (2tbsp) - 3/4 cups of water
- Cinnamon: 1/4 tsp (more or less depending on personal preference)
- Coconut Oil: 1 tbsp

1. Heat water and brew Dandelion Root Tea for 10 minutes in 3/4 cups of water.
2. Once ready, strain tea and place all ingredients into a blender.
3. Blend together, or mix together if not using a blender
4. Enjoy and give thanks for this cup of nourishing medicine you’ve just prepared for yourself.
