Recently one of my favourite brands, Of The Earth Superfoods, sent me some of their delicious products to try. I always use their products at home, so I really couldn’t wait to feature them on my blog! They very kindly sent me some of their maca hot chocolate powder, beetroot powder and yacon syrup. As soon as I opened my gifts, I couldn’t wait to make a new chocolatey recipe with them.
Yacon syrup is a sweetener I really like to pair with chocolate, as it has quite a deep, unique flavour that pairs really well with the bitterness of cacao. I usually add yacon syrup to smoothies or milkshakes, so I decided I would mix it with the maca hot chocolate and beetroot powder, alongside some oat milk and other tasty ingredients to blend it into a creamy chocolate milk for this recipe.
As the weather has been so warm and beautiful in London over the past week, I’ve been enjoying drinking this delicious milk while the sun has been shining! It’s been so wonderful. I moved here just over a week ago now, and I really love it. It’s such an incredible city! I am so grateful to be here.
This recipe is a perfect, refreshing, springtime drink that instantly satisfies your chocolate cravings. It only takes a short time to make, and then it’s ready to be enjoyed straight away – or you can always store it in the fridge/add some ice cubes to it if you want it to be nice and cool.
