1. Heat the soy milk in a small pot on low heat for a few minutes; do not allow itto boil.

2. Whisk in the cocoa powder and maple syrup to taste. For a luscious addition,consider melting in vegan dark chocolate.


Raw Incan Chocolate Tonic: Replace the soy milk with almond, Brazil, or macadamia nut milk; replace the cocoa powder with raw cacao powder; add 1/2 teaspoon of maca powder and the seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean (optional); and use agave nectar to taste, instead of the maple syrup. Place in a blender and blend until creamy. Enjoy cold, or heat it on the stove until warm to the touch.
