Have a lil’ google search and you’ll see what I mean..
This is hot chocolate that grew up and found it’s ancient medicinal roots.
You know, cause Sunday mornings are supposed to be super slow and this way I can stay put on the couch Over the centuries food as medicine and the sacred connection to the earth has lost it’s glamour (pretty much the point of Earthsprout to bring it back) and one sacred and very much loved edible have been (and is! Lucuma () is a spectacular fruit known as the ‘Gold of the Incas’ (obviously awesome to pair with raw cacao then..) but since I’ve never actually been able to lay my hands on a fresh fruit I’ve been loving the raw Lucuma powder -in the top spoon up there- for many years now. Imagine nuts, yoghurt, maple syrup, salt and cream at the same time – that’s Lucuma!
Sounds like a total indulgence, As humans we are programmed to look for sweetness in the things we eat.
As Lucuma is low on the glycemic index scale it’s a great way to get the desired sweet touch without the downsides of refined sugar, artificial sweeteners, crazy glucose and even fructose kicks.
Meaning Lucuma is a safe sweetheart to fuel our lives with (even for diabetics! The Lucuma powder in this medicinal and sacred Hot Chocolate Mix recipe adds so much sweetness that I don’t feel the need to add any honey/maple/other.
Obviously this is very inconvenient as I have to leave my personal cosy town on the couch.
