Notes:

 Warm up and energize with a mood  enhancing cup of Blissful Hot Chocolate.

A great way to start your day or to pep you up during a mid-afternoon slump.

This is a nourishing drink that offers abundant benefits.

Raw Cacoa & Maca deliver incredible minerals, vitamins, nutrients and anti-oxidants to your body.

Cacao is one of the best sources of magnesium you can find in food. Did you know that Magnesium is an essential mineral that over 80% of Americans are chronically deficient in?

Most people don’t realize that cacao is actually a fruit  which comes from  the Amazonian tree. It is the highest anti oxidant food on the planet, the #1 food source of magnesium, promotes heart and bone health, energizes, and increases serotonin. So, it elevates your mood  and puts  you in the mood since it is a natural aphrodisiac. Its great to find a food source that offers such a nutritional punch while offering so much pleasure.

Maca is also rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium among many other nutrients.  The nutritional benefits of cacao and magnesium are impressive. I love how you feel them working right away.  They both balance your hormones and cacao increases brain chemicals like serotonin.  Cacao and Maca enhance the performance of pretty much every organ and system in your body.

*Now while I  along with my fellow yogis and clients in my Diabetes Wellness Class think this is delicious,  the jury is still out at the Griffin Household.  Sean,  for one, is still partial to Swiss Miss.
