Times to align your cacao ceremony

Cacao Preparation


  • 1 cup of water or your choice of milk
  • 2tbsp or 20-30g of Cacao


  • Sweetener of choice (pure maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar)
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Maca powder
  • Chilli or salt


  • Start by weighing your chunk of cacao - 20 grams for daily use, or 30-40 grams for a ceremonial serve
  • Add one cup of your milk of choice (or you could use one cup of water if you’d prefer to follow the traditional method)
  • Combine all your favourite spices and sweeteners (cinnamon and maple syrup are a great addition)
  • Place your ingredients in a small to medium sized saucepan, and brew on the stove on a low heat
  • Stir until all the ingredients are combined (the longer you stir, the thicker it will get)
  • For best results we suggest using a milk frother for to eliminate separation if you have one
  • Pour into your favourite mug and enjoy

step 1

Set a sacred place

You can use candles, dim the lighting, burn incense, diffuse essential oils, whatever feels most sacred to you.

step 2

Set an intention

Close your eyes, hold the cup of Cacao up to your heart, take some deep breaths and focus on how you desire to feel after your personal cacao ceremony.

You may like to use one of the following prompts to set an intention:
- I choose to release...
- I choose to call in...
- After the ceremony, I'd like to feel...

step 3

Rest and reflect

Once you have finished your cup of Cacao, allow yourself to truly bask in the experience of your personal cacao ceremony; allow any emotions, ideas and feelings to move through you and be physically, emotionally and spiritually present with yourself and your experience.

If you have time, enjoy some yoga, meditation, dancing, art or any other form of creative expression.
