Raw Mocha!!! Hot Chocolate!!!

I have to say this is a delicious drink throughout the long cold winter we have here in Scotland. It has kept me warm this winter and I think I am going to miss it in the summer!

1 large cup almond milk (made from blending 1 part nut to 3 parts water and then straining the pulp)
1/3 vanilla pod
2-3 teaspoons raw cacao
2-3 teapsoons mesquite meal
1 teaspoon maca (opt)
1 teaspoon purple corn extract
dash cinnamon and ginger
dash agave syrup (opt)
pinch sea salt
cacao liquor for grating on the frothy top

Blend up the almond milk with all of the above ingredients until smooth. Sweeten to taste with a little agave syrup and blend until creamy. Warm up in a saucepan and then give it another whizz in the blender before pouring into a tall glass. Grate the liquor over the top. Enjoy!!!
