Zesty Adaptogenic Hot Chocolate

When it’s cold outside, it’s time for a chocolate treat in warm liquid form. Our zesty adaptogenic hot chocolate really hits the spot.

We are all about healthy choices, however sometimes you just have to treat yourself!

This zesty adaptogenic hot chocolate is:
deliciously decedent
refined sugar free
rich in magnesium
contains lions mane

Lions mane is considered a powerful nootropic. This means it has the capacity to enhance brain function and cognition. Adding medicinal mushrooms into your  hot drinks is such a great way to build resilience, improve mental function and support your immune function in a powerful way.


  • 600ml nut milk (made using our Nut Mylk Base) *Tip: blend your milk the night before so it thickens up overnight
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1 tbsp chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp liquid sweetener of your choice (e.g. honey or rice malt syrup)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 ginger powder
  • pinch chilli
  • 1 tsp lions mane



In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and warm over a low to medium heat

Stir with a whisk continuously for about 5 minutes

Be mindful not to bring to boil as we don't want to milk to split

For a frothy finish, you can transfer into your nutribullet or stick blender to blitz for a couple of seconds

If you have a thermomix, you can put everything in, set the temperate to 70°C, 5 minutes, then turn up the speed at the end

Top with crushed rose petals for a hint of bliss
