Remember those packets of hot cocoa mix that contained the little marshmallows? Those were the BEST as a kid. Those little packets of bliss were what every kid dreamed of on snow days. If you were a mom you knew you were going to win instant mom points if you came home from grocery shopping (grocery pick up wasn’t even a thing!) with a blue box full of the chocolatey good stuff.
These days, you can have “the good stuff” by actually drinking the good stuff – AND you don’t need to be a kid too! This hot cacao mix has the goods like maca for hormone healing benefits and a sneaky little kick from the cayenne pepper. Other than that, cacao powder (or cocoa if that’s what you have!) cinnamon and salt is all that’s needed.
To make a cup, place one heaping tablespoon of the mix into your cup with whisk in 6-8oz of warmed milk. To make it iced (freaking delish) – simple whisk the tablespoon of mix with a little warmed milk or water until dissolved. Add ice and the rest of your milk and stir!

Hormone Healing Cacao Mix
This soothing hormone healing mix is full of childhood nostalgia with an adulthood chocolatey twist!
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
- 1 tbsp maca powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp cayenne
- Pinch of salt
Add all the ingredients into a small mason jar and mix. You can easily double or triple this. I definitely did!
To make a cup:
Scoop 1 heaping tbsp of the mix and whisk or blend into 8oz of hot dairy-free milk (I like oat or soy) OR cold milk and pour over ice. Both delicious. If you like a little sweetness (hi. Me) I’d add a tap or two of maple syrup to your milk before blending
