Clean Hot Cocoa


This should be renamed Gross Hot Cocoa. It’s a wonderful thought that you can have a healthy hot cocoa, but unfortunately this isn’t it. The consistency is good and it pretty rich but it misses the mark. This is vegan and suitable if you’re following Junger’s clean gut or clean cleanse (my thoughts if you’re on the cleanse you might be feeling so deprived that you’ll actually enjoy this drink. This recipe is from Junger’s recipe book Clean Eats

Makes 3 drinks


  • 1 cup raw brazil nuts
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 2/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of sea salt.

Put the nuts and water i a blender. Once blended strain the mixture and then pour into a saucepan. Slowly heat then whisk in the coconut sugar, cacao powder, vanilla and salt. Simmer for about 3 minutes then serve.

    I agree. This was thick and gross. I can
    believe they suggest that kids will live this
    along with adults. Don’t waste your money
    making this.
