TIPS ON HOW TO PREPARE THE MESOAMERICAN STYLE COCOA DRINK
A delicious and nutritious drink with our cocoa can replace coffee in the morning and contribute to the health of the nervous system, the cognitive system and the heart. It also contributes to strengthening the immune defenses thanks to the action of flavonoids, antioxidants present in cocoa. Cocoa is also considered a mood improver, that is it helps - thanks to the content of the amino acid tryptophan - to the production of serotonin, a hormone good mood, thus improving our emotional state. Cocoa contains neurotransmitters and molecules of bliss, as for anandamide, an endocannabinoid that is produced by our body, and which with cocoa is further stimulated, giving us a feeling of well-being and pleasure. You can drink it in the morning, during or after your meditation session, you can use it for holistic purposes, in cocoa circles to untie emotional knots, and introduce it into your diet with awareness.
FOR PREPARATION ...
Shred 15-20 g of cocoa with the help of a knife. Heat some mineral water (equivalent to a large teacup - 180-200 ml) or if you prefer, use a vegetable drink of your choice.
Pour the freshly cut cocoa into the saucepan, and gradually add the hot water (not boiling, otherwise it alters the cocoa flavor and properties); mix it until completely dissolved. Add the remaining water. If you don't want to use the saucepan, you can use a blender or a simple milk frother. The traditional drink is bitter, but if you really can't resist, you can add a date in the blender, or a little honey.
For a functional effect, an excellent solution is the use of medicinal herbs, spices or roots, such as cinnamon, cardamom, chili pepper, ashwagandha, turmeric, ginger and so on. In Mesoamerica, part of today's Central America, cacao is often made with a paste of corn.
Serve it in your favorite cup :)
