If you do not want the potential stimulation or at times jolting effect of cacao, I can relate and understand. If you want the indulgent flavor without any perceived detrimental effects, then you can have exactly that.
In a whiff of inspiration to consume more Maca to feel super grounded and resilient to stress and a busy life + a desire to bump up the antioxidants without consuming the relatively limited choices of higher sugar fresh fruits (which have been less than ideal quality this year in Marin County due to the weather), I created this Elixir. I suggest there are limited choices because each year the fresh fruits are always the same and I’m getting somewhat bored with them. Fruits of the Earth has the common + exotic ones, and that’s what I want right now.
I usually just measure the 2 T of Vitamineral Green to make sure I get it in there and then do 1 regular spoonful of MacaForce and 1 spoonful of Fruits of the Earth, yet for this recipe I went with exact measurements to bring you a guaranteed strong chocolate flavored drink. To get more chocolate flavor, add more Dark Mint MacaForce and Fruits of the Earth.
I never would have thought to use Fruits of the Earth to make a drink have more of a chocolate flavor, yet every single time I demo it for HealthForce, customers tell me it tastes like chocolate (and there’s nothing in there that even resembles chocolate!). Creativity in the kitchen and a need to back off my cacao addiction, brought this sweet treat to you.
If you get any PMS symptoms, this is your remedy. This was a successful experiment and it’s too good to keep to myself. Before and during your moon cycle, have 1-3 of these Dark Green Chocolate-y Mint Elixirs per day. Your man will notice 😉
