Rawbucks Iced Mocha

I actually got the idea for this drink a few years back from a recipe I found through the Sunny Raw Kitchen site. The recipe was called “Best Coffee Ever”. It was very good, but a little too thick, and strong. So, I made quite a few changes. After several trials and errors I finally came up with my own rendition of this mocha iced treat. I find it truly delicious! I hope you do too.

Ingredients:
1 Scoop, Raw Cacao Powder
1 tablespoon Raw Carob Powder
1 tablespoon Maca Powder
1 tablespoon Lucuma Powder
3 Capsules, Fo-Ti (Ho Shou Wu), emptied
1 tablespoon Yacon (like syrup)
1½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Squirt, Agave (generous)
6 drop SweetLeaf Liquid Stevia – Chocolate Flavor
dash Cinnamon
2 cup Nut Milk
1 Handful, Macadamia Nuts
4 Ice cubes, or more
dash Nutmeg

Note: I used Macadamia/Almond), Use more or less depending upon consistency desired. I also recommend you use “heaping” scoops of the raw cacao powder, and heaping tablespoons of the raw carob. It’s okay to use a little more of both then not.

Preparation:
Place all ingredients into a blender (except the ice). Blend on high till well mixed, then add ice. Blend again on high until smooth and frothy. Pour into your favorite glass and add a sprig of mint, or you can add raw chocolate sauce. It’s very yummy and very satisfying…and it makes you feel real good!
