Since Chris bailed on Vanessa and I, it turned into a fancy candlelit dinner for two, with the best damn vegan Mayan Hot Chocolate Mousse I've ever made 😍 will post recipe below. Also got a John the Conqueror candle dressed and lit. John the Conqueror was a prince forced into slavery who used his quick wit and determination to outsmart his captors and thus escape them. The High John oil in this is taken from a special root said to possess his power and fortitude. Also, there's glitter. ✨✨✨
Vegan Mayan Hot Chocolate Mousse: - Ingredients -
2 ripe avocados
8 tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
4-5 tablespoons raw agave syrup
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons cinnamon
⅛ teaspoon chili powder
⅛ teaspoon cayenne
⅛ teaspoon clove
zest and juice from 1 clementine
Process avocados in food processor till creamy, add cacao powder and vanilla extract, blend until smooth, making sure to scrape sides of bowl with spatula. Add remaining ingredients, blend and chill in the fridge for 2hours.
Ceremonial cacao was traditionally used by the Ancient Mayan Shamans in ceremony to travel between the worlds, to travel beyond the veil. To do this, the shamans infused their cacao with spirit, giving the ceremonial cacao a spiritual dimension not found in other cacao sources. Ceremonial cacao is therefore an ancient plant medicine, a wisdom keeper, a teacher and facilitator. Ceremonial cacao leads you to the door to the heart, to the spiritual dimension, but it does not push you through like other plant medicines – such as those found in the Amazon Basin. Ceremonial cacao invites you on a journey, to travel with the chocolate spirit through the veil, but only if you choose. What a pleasure to bring this sweet medicine back to NY #ceremonialcacao#guatemala#lakeatitlan#theobroma#cacao#guatemalancacao#mayanchocolate#healing#cacaoshaman

Last later gram vacay post since our final day at sea was just spent hanging out with another couple that we befriended, but our port of Cozumel was instaworthy. We did a chocolate, tacos, and tequila excursion that involved a 2 part museum (culturally significant art from different regions of Mexico, and replicas of all major ruins at 1/25th the size), making our own chocolate bars, a tequila tasting, and seeing a traditional rain dance performed. I loved the chocolate, my husband loved the tequila and overall it was a very fun day. #latergram#tacosandtequila#mayanchocolate#cozumel#discovermexico#vacation#tequilatasting#chocolatemaking#ncl#cruise#explore
