An Ayurvedic Cacao Shake

This recipe is not so much having to do with the time of year, but more to do with the fact that this snack or simple mini-meal concoction will hold us over in-between bigger meals.


Cacao Shake

1.5 cups of almond milk

3 or 4 dates (pitted)

6 to 8 almonds (or pecans)

1/8 tsp of cinnamon powder

1 heaping tsp of pure cacao powder

1 heaping tsp of almond butter

Place all the ingredients in a small sauce pan except for the almond butter and bring to a low-medium simmer for about 10 mins.

Add this mixture to a blender and add the almond butter. Blend for about two to three minutes until fully broken down into a shake-like consistency.

Serve in a fun mug.
