Nourishing Maca-Cacao Drinking Chocolate

New Chapter


This soul-warming drink unites two ancient superfoods that are still popularly treasured today. Bursting with antioxidant compounds, cacao powder is chocolate in its raw, unsweetened form. Maca is a root vegetable known as a potent herbal adaptogen, delivering benefits for endurance, energy, and stamina.† Fermenting organic maca, like New Chapter does with its Fermented Maca Booster Powder, unlocks its phytonutrients so they can be easily digested and utilized by the body.

Combine these ingredients with coconut milk, maple syrup and more to make a steaming mug of rich drinking chocolate to boost your entire day!
