TIPS FOR USE WITH THE HELP OF A BLENDER (quick and easy)
The first time we recommend starting with a dose between 10 g and 20 g of cocoa (the ceremonial dose is around 30-40 g max.), to get in touch with its intense flavor, very different from the commercial chocolates we have been used to all the way. So: chop the cocoa with the help of a knife and heat mineral water (equivalent to a cup of water) or vegetable milk. Once hot, add the water, cocoa and spices and blend everything for a few seconds.
For a functional effect, an excellent solution is the use of herbs and spices, such as cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom, turmeric, ginger, rosemary, thyme, maca, ashwagandha, ginseng, chilli and so on. Indigenous Mesoamerican peoples drank pure cocoa in a cup with chilli, vanilla, honey and corn.
Recommended doses: start with with 10 g and 20 g of cocoa. Although the ceremonial dose is 40 g, we always recommend not to exceed 30 g per person, which are more than enough. In the case of daily and continuous use, it would be more appropriate to use around 10-15 grams, as many doctors and nutrition experts report. Ask your specialist if you are following a particular diet.
Ceremonial cocoa, being true pure cocoa, is a very energetic food, and should be drunk with awareness and caution.
- As Ceremonial Cacao is a pure product, it has a powerful vasodilating action, increasing blood flow. It may therefore not be indicated in the case of severe heart disease.

- The stimulating and energizing effect of cocoa begins about half an hour after its intake. We recommend drinking a glass of water before and after to aid absorption and digestion.
