Sexy Sipping Chocolate with Identity CBD Creamer
I had my first real drinking chocolate in San Francisco at Dandelion Chocolate with cacao connoisseur, Sarah Weisfeld. Drinking chocolate is an artisanal heart-opening practice, not to be compared with the processed hot chocolate packets we all grew up with. Cacao's high level of theobromine is believed to boost mood and some even say, libido. Combined with CBD, this recipe is an easy at-home adaptation made with items more commonly found in the kitchen. Before drinking with someone special, turn the lights down and light a candle. While each of you hold the sipping chocolate in your hands, set a good intention, share something you are grateful for, then take the first sip together. Enjoy this heart-opening experience!
Total CBD: 20mg
2 packets Identity CBD creamer in cacao flavor
1 15-ounce can coconut milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup bittersweet chocolate chips
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch kosher salt
Pinch cayenne (optional)
In a bowl, whisk cocoa powder and CBD creamer with 1/3 cup hot water until dissolved.
In a saucepan, bring coconut milk, sugar and salt to a simmer while stirring. Whisk in cocoa mixture and chocolate chips until smooth. Stir in vanilla, cinnamon and cayenne to desired taste to spice things up.
Light some candles and share this experience with someone special. Set a good intention and share something you are grateful for before drinking.
