What goes well with Ceremonial Cacao? Cacao Recipes

Looking forward to sharing some of my favorite cacao recipes and combinations. Ceremonial cacao has been becoming more and more popular. I myself have been enjoying it well over a year or so. As an herbalist and someone genuinely curious about recipes and nourishment, it has been a lot of fun to be experimental and add more medicine to this incredible heart medicine. I also have an open spleen in Human Design so I am more open to different tastes πŸ˜‹

Why would you add more ingredients to your cacao?

I believe that we can use our food and nourishment as medicine in all life situations. If we only eat a certain amount of food and drink per day…why not make it tasty and nutritious and…medicinal? Food is medicine. Many ancient cultures have long believed this and it’s something I strive to do in my daily life.

We can increase the nutritional value of something when we add certain things to our food. Cacao is a food and not a sweet. To learn more about my spiritual practice with cacao check out this blog post.


Here are a few of my favorite cacao combinations because…food is MEDICINE

I typically intuitively combine these ingredients. I will usually do 1/2 teaspoon to a teaspoon depending on the ingredient. I don’t want it to overpower the taste of cacao so I try to be conscious about that.Β  I find that mixing in a vitamix is the best as it really melds the flavors and you end up with this really rich and frothy mixture.
