Superfood-boosted coffee with cacao, hemp and lucuma

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 2 minutes
Servings 1-2 servings
Try out this version of a reinvented mochaccino, made with raw cacao, hemp seeds, and lucuma powder. When you see a cacao that's titled "theobroma" cacao, it's also known as the "food of the gods". Cacao powder is made after beans from the cacao tree have been fermented and dried. More than just a sweet treat, cacao is a superfood filled with vitamins and minerals, many of which contribute to heart health. Adding raw cacao in particular to your diet is extra beneficial because vitamins can be lost when it's heated. Hemp seeds are also very nutritious and a source of complete protein. Lucuma powder is one of those ingredients that should be used more often, as it's flavor profile is similar to maple syrup, sweet potatoes, and caramel, making it a great substitute for sugar. When mixed with liquid, it adds a creamy texture, which makes it an excellent addition to smoothies, puddings and other desserts. This superfood-coffee mix is a great energy booster, and the coffee in it can be substituted with chaga or black tea for an equally delicious drink.
