Mucuna Hot Chocolate

Mucuna Hot Chocolate

A potent, mood elevating elixir, this hot chocolate is made with raw cacao and Mucuna pruriens. Raw cacao is well recognised as a mood-boosting food due to the feelgood phytonutrients and, even better, it’s a medicine delivery system which means that anything you combine with it is driven deeper into the body. In this case it’s Mucuna, affectionately known around Soaring Free HQ as Mucuna Matata (means ‘no worries’ for the rest of your days). This potent plant boosts dopamine in the system and is an effective antidepressant!

2 C plant-based milk
⅓ C coconut milk or coconut cream
4 tsp Mucuna Powder (2 daily doses for 2 servings)
⅓ C dairy-free chocolate or raw chocolate chips (can be subbed by raw cacao powder)
1 Tbsp cashew butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp gmo-free cornstarch (optional)
pinch of salt
liquid sweetener of choice


Step 1:

Simmer all of the ingredients, except the cornstarch, in a saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Step 2:

Once the chocolate has melted and the mixture is hot, mix the cornstarch with a bit of water to make a paste and whisk into the hot chocolate mixture.

Step 3:

Cook for another 3-5 minutes until thickened and pour into mugs.

Step 4:

Serve with extra coconut cream, cacao powder and cinnamon sugar.


The cornstarch can be left out, it’s just a thickening agent if you're looking for a thicker hot chocolate. You can also use arrowroot flour or hemp seeds to thicken. The cashew butter can be subbed with almond butter or hazelnut butter.
