This healthy maca chocolate cream comes together in minutes from ingredients commonly found in most kitchens, which is especially helpful when sudden cravings strike.
Maca goes really well with cacao, especially in homemade creams and puddings. This powerful South American herb also readily shares its sterols and fatty acid amides, which have been found to have hormone-balancing effects. Cacao, on the other hand, is rich in alkaloids, which are linked to increasing energy levels and improving mood. Overall, this easy-to-make cream is a delightfully wholesome dessert.
For extra indulgence, you may add some chocolate chips into the mixture just as you take it off the stove.
This delicious chocolate cream with maca powder can be eaten on its own or used as a filling in various healthy desserts.
