Mexican Superblend Mocha

Why you'll love this Adaptogenic Mexican Mocha

There's temperature heat and then there's heat, heat ❤️‍🔥

Perfect for cold days and winter chills months, this chocolatey coffee with a kick will help keep you warm and cozy, from head to toe. A simpler, yet more mature spin on our Adaptogenic Mexican Hot Chocolate with added coffee.

So what makes this our go-to drink when the temps drop?

  • Milk: whether dairy-free or not gives this bevy a creamy base.
  • Coffee: for caffeine, antioxidants and rich flavor (or you can use an herbal alternative)
  • Calm Cacao Superblend: for nervous system calming, antioxidants, and immune and stress supporting goodness featuring Reishi, Mucuna Pruriens and Maca AND warming spices like cloves, cinnamon and ginger.
  • Cayenne Pepper: just a pinch can pack the heat! It's the Capsaicin found in hot peppers that brings the health benefits, like boosting metabolism.
  • Some added collagen for more protein.
  • Optional but highly recommended, some shaved Functional Chocolate for more fun, more antioxidants and more chocolatey goodness.

How's that for a cup of cozy?

Ingredients to make a Adaptogenic Mexican Mocha

  • ¾ cup hot brewed coffee or instant coffee/herbal coffee*
  • ¼ cup canned full-fat coconut milk (or other rich and creamy milk)
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • 1 tbsp Calm Cacao Superblend
  • 1-2 tsp coconut sugar, to taste
  • a tiny pinch ground cayenne pepper** 
  • optional: 1 scoop collagen powder

Notes:

*As an alternative to brewed coffee, dissolve 1.5-2 tsp instant coffee (or herbal coffee alternative such as Dandyblend) into 1 cup hot water, and omit the extra ¼ cup boiling water listed in the ingredients.

**Ground cayenne pepper can vary in heat/intensity depending on the type you’re using and its freshness. We recommend starting with a tiny pinch and adding more to taste if needed.
