Zain’s Mayan Hot Chocolate


Therapeutic, nurturing and ancient, the Mayans definitely knew what was up with this sacred blend.

This warm and delicious drink is the perfect way to wind down or nourish yourself after a deep yoga practice. This is definitely a treat for those days when you feel like you need a little extra lovin.

As I always say, there’s nothing that a cup of my superfood Mayan Hot Chocolate cannot heal.

Makes 1 Serving


  • 2 Tbsp Raw Organic Coconut Butter
  • 500ml Nut Milk Of Your Choice (I used homemade cashew milk for this recipe)
  • 2 Tbsp Raw Organic [Cacao] (/video/chocolate-farmer)
  • Pinch Chili Powder OR Cayenne Pepper
  • Pinch Ginger Powder
  • Pinch Cinnamon (optional)
  • ¼ Tsp Maca Root Powder
  • 1 Tsp Sweetener of Your Choice (I used 8-10 drops Vanilla Cream Liquid Stevia)

Optional Add-Ins/Toppings:

Boost this recipe with superfoods of your choice! I like my 14-mushroom blend (which is a combination of Chaga, Reishi, Cordyceps and other superfood mushrooms) as well as my Love Power Tonic (which is an elixir made of Maca, Muia Puama, Tribulus & Cinnamon), ¼ Vanilla Bean, 2 Tbsp Coconut Whipped Cream or Vegan Marshmallows!


  1. Lightly heat the nut/seed milk of your choice on medium heat (to keep the nutrients in the milk do not heat above 118F).
  2. Whisk all other ingredients into the pot and serve warm!
