Cacao Elixir - By John Croft – “Cacao Addict”
When I have a mindfulness or meditation group to facilitate, I find this tonic really assists in opening the heart and stilling the mind. Cacao has been used in ceremonies for centuries as a tonic to bring the mind, body and spirit back into balance. With the addition of the other ingredients it is such a healing elixir.
400ml tin coconut milk
1/2 cup (50g) organic cacao powder
1/4 cup (70g) maple syrup
1/8 cup cacao butter
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp maca powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 drop food-grade Cinnamon essential oil
1 drop food-grade Cardamom essential oil
2 drops food-grade Wild Orange essential oil
1 drop food-grade Rose essential oil (or Rose Touch is fine - a few drops)
Pinch of pink salt
1 cup of water
Place all ingredient in a medium saucepan over medium heat, or into your Thermomix bowl. Heat to a slow simmer for 10 minutes, whisking all the time (TM heat 50, speed 4, 8-10 minutes).
Pour into small glasses to serve.
You can add a few glasses of water to this recipe to make it go for 8-10 people too, otherwise this recipe does enough for 4
