  • We know we’re biased, but we truly feel our Superfood Hot Cocoa is a game-changer when it comes to elevating the flavors of an iced mocha. We’ve added cinnamon, to enhance the warming and aromatic qualities, which adds a touch of sweetness and can helps balance blood sugar levels. We’ve also added turmeric, which is a potent anti-inflammatory spice, and brings a golden hue and a boost of antioxidants to this recipe. In addition, we’ve selected raw cacao for this blend, which contributes a rich, deep chocolate flavor and is packed with magnesium, iron, and antioxidants. Lastly, the maca is an adaptogenic root, and enhances energy levels and supports hormone balance. Together, these superfoods make Juniper's Superfood Hot Cocoa a perfect addition to your iced mocha, or anything that needs a yummy chocolate-y element!
  • To make the delicious and nutritious iced mocha, you'll need the following ingredients:
  • 1 cup of brewed coffee, cooled
  • 2 tablespoons of Juniper's Superfood Hot Cocoa
  • 1 cup of milk (dairy or plant-based, Juniper’s Superfood Hot Cocoa is vegan as-is)
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup or sweetener of choice (optional)
  • Ice cubes

Start by combining the brewed coffee, Juniper's Superfood Hot Cocoa, raw cacao powder, milk, and sweetener in a blender. Blend until well combined and frothy. If you prefer a sweeter drink, add more sweetener to taste. Next, fill a glass with ice cubes and pour the blended mixture over the ice. Stir gently to combine and add garnishes if you’d like.

Not only does this iced mocha taste heavenly, but it also provides a range of health benefits, so your feel-good-post-coffee moment can last throughout the day after enjoying your drink. Cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar levels, which can aid in balancing hormones and maintaining energy throughout the day. Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties can support overall well-being and promote a healthy immune system. Raw cacao, a superfood packed with antioxidants, promotes heart health and boosts mood. Maca, known for its adaptogenic qualities, helps the body adapt to stress and enhances energy levels.
