I love a hot chocolate drink, and this is a really creamy decadent one. There are so many plant-based options (and I am always changing it up), you can also use a plant milk such as almond or oat, but to keep away from refined sugars, I like to add a banana. If you don’t like banana, you could use dates or a very small amount of coconut sugar or agave. The addition of Maca adds a slightly malty flavour and a hit of energy. Maca is a Peruvian ground root vegetable, an adaptogen which supports your natural energy – everyone is unique and so it may be the best thing ever for you or not.
