If you’re in the mood for a chocolatey cocktail, but want to pass on the alcohol, this cacao martini mocktail is perfect. Not only will it give you your cacao fix anytime of the day, it will boost your immune system and digestion with the added power of turmeric and the zing of ginger.
2 tbsp. CHOC Chick Turmeric and Ginger Blissful Blends Cacao
1 1/3 cup. cashew milk or oat milk
1-2 tbsp. maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
A little hot water
2-3 ice cubes
25g CHOC Chick cacao butter
1-2 tbsp maple syrup (to taste)
1.5 tbsp. CHOC Chick cacao powder
Pinch of salt
Metal balloon whisk
Raw Chocolate for grating
Use the remaining chocolate sauce
Chocolate Sauce & Raw Chocolate (make first)
Melt the cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of water on a low heat. Once melted turn the heat off and add the cacao powder, maple syrup and salt. Mix well with a metal balloon whisk. Pour half the sauce into a small tub and place in the freezer to set for 10 minutes. Place the rest of the sauce in a bowl to thicken to a pourable consistency.
Mix the cacao turmeric and ginger and the cinnamon with a little hot water to make a paste, then blitz all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth.
Drizzle a little chocolate sauce around the edge of two martini glasses or dip the glasses into the sauce. Divide the chocolate martini mocktail between the two glasses, take the raw chocolate out of the freezer and grate over the drinks. Cheers!
