The Daily Foundational Recipe

1
10 minutes

5-12 Cacao discs
4oz water, milk or herbal tea
2 tsp sweetener of your choice, optional

Heat your water to 170 degrees. Like green tea, using boiling water with our cacao could heat out all the powerful nutrients. We like using electric kettles with temperature control or you can boil the water and let it cool down for a few minutes. 

Select your dosage with intention. Cacao can be stimulating, so this dosage chart will help you decide how much cacao to work with. We also recommend taking notes on how your body responds to different amounts, as every body is different.

Make it creamy! Place the cacao in a blender, pour in 4-5 oz of heated water per serving and gently blend to create a nice frothy drink. We also love these hand-held milk frothers, which are less clean-up.

*Bonus tip! The cacao tastes better when you pause and set an intention for your day before taking your first sip.

Foundational recipe with Boundless Belize

Heated water, or nut-milk like hemp, almond or cashew to make it creamy

1⁄2 tsp of local bee pollen

Pinch of cinnamon

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 land you are on, and give thanks to the bee family that does so much for us and our food systems.

Have you ever found yourself with leftover cacao?

Pour your cacao into muffin tins, and stir in any sweetener or spices (perhaps a little cinnamon or sprinkle of cayenne). The important thing is to finalize the recipe before letting the cacao set up.

Leave it in your refrigerator overnight. You will have a creamy mousse by morning, ready to eat!

IMPORTANT: This also will last three days longer than keeping the cacao in liquid form!

Yum!
