I made some delicious raw cacao hot cocoa the other day. This is a great way to have a comforting drink that satisfies your craving for sweet. But the warming spices and properties of raw cacao make it a wonderful "wake me up" beverage. If you are feeling extra indulgent, top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon and cacao on top.
