Peppermint and Coconut Dream Hot Cacao Beverage

I recently appeared on ABC 7 Southwest-Florida to show them my recipe for this Peppermint and Coconut Dream Hot Cacao Beverage. This vegan hot chocolate beverage is perfect for the holidays and features essential oils that provide amazing health benefits!

This drink features peppermint essential oil which aids in digestion, so it serves as a yummy drink and tummy tamer. It also promotes clear thinking! The Maca powder in the recipe is an anti-inflammatory and stress-busting super powder. Plus, the magnesium-rich raw cacao makes it a vegan treat!
