Superfood Hot Chocolate Recipe

April 26, 2015 2 min read

When it’s cold outside, the last thing that I crave is a smoothie. I want something that will warm me from the inside out! But then we are missing out on our daily dose of superfoods and nutrients that usually come with our smoothie… right?! Well, no! You can get all the benefits of a smoothie but make a hot version for the colder weather. Here are some suggestions for making your own Superfood Hot Chocolate: Dandelion Root or Chaga Tea: Use this as your base instead of just adding water, may as well get an extra layer of benefits in there. You can use any flavored tea that you like, chai would also be a great option. Coconut Milk: the thick stuff- use a tablespoon or so to make it nice and creamy. Coconut Oil: Unlike other fats, medium chain fatty acids from coconut oil are easier to digest, not readily stored as fat and instead are quickly converted to energy. Look for virgin, organic coconut oil. Ghee: Buy or make your own, its so easy! Look for grass-fed or organic. Chia Seeds: These nutritional powerhouses not only add a juicy omega-3’s and protein but they also help to thicken it up. Adding them also helps to keep you fuller longer after drinking it! Raw Cacao Powder: Look for raw, organic and sustainably sourced cacao. Maca: Well known for it ability to boost energy, endurance and stamina, the Peruvian root, Maca has been used for centuries as a tonic for sexual function and hormone balancing. It is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. Sea Salt: A necessary addition. Not only does it balance the flavours out but its also supports the adrenal glands. Skip the iodized table salt and opt for pink Himalayan or celtic sea salts! Sweetner: Raw honey is always a great option but you could also use maple syrup or stevia!   Superfood Hot Chocolate-Basic Recipe: 1 tbsp chia seeds ½ tsp maca powder ½-1 tsp raw cacao powder 1 tbsp virgin coconut oil or grass-fed ghee pinch of good quality sea salt Sweetener of choice 2 cups of hot tea of choice Fun additions: 1 tbsp raw almond butter ½ a banana (really thickens it up) 1 scoop of chocolate or vanilla protein powder Preparation: Place all ingredients in a High-powered blender like a Vitamix or NutriBullet and blend until perfectly frothy and foamy!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
