Add a teaspoon of the powder to a cup and add 50ml of boiling water, stirring to dissolve. Fill the cup with heated milk of your choice, stirring to combine. Sweeten further if desired. However, you could also prepare this in a pot on the stove if you were making multiple cups, or alternatively on an espresso machine by steaming the milk. For iced Cacao and Maca, simply use cold milk and pour over ice.

Does Cacao and Maca contain caffeine?

Maca is a vegetable that does not contain caffeine. Cacao does contain caffeine, however its caffeine content is significantly less than what is found in coffee or  black tea. If you are sensitive to caffeine, we recommend enjoying it in the first half of the day, to avoid becoming overstimulated at the end of the day, and allowing the body time to adequately metabolise the caffeine before sleep.

What is our packaging made from?

The clear pouch that holds our Cacao and Maca is not made from plastic. It is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane, which can also easily be home composted and will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use where it will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.
