Servings 2 people


  • 2 cups filtered/spring water
  • 4 medjool dates pre-soaked 2 hrs
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp cashews pre-soaked 2 hrs
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder


  • Blend until smooth and creamy then add to a saucepan.
  • To keep it raw, gently heat until warmed.
  • For a non-raw, and hotter drink, heat until it reaches your desired temperature.
  • Add a dollop of coconut yogurt and garnish with raw cacao nibs, if desired.


If you don't like it so thick, just add extra water when blending. If you're sensitive to raw cacao powder, you can substitute with carob powder.
