Your cup of cocoa before bed

The Restorative Effects of Cocoa

When we think about natural remedies, the first thing that comes to mind is our mothers' herbal teas; But another remedy with many benefits and also an enriching flavor is cocoa. This not only gives us a comforting feeling but also contains restorative properties for our body; magnesium and tryptophan. Magnesium is a mineral that helps reduce stress and anxiety. It is a natural relaxant that deactivates adrenaline. On the other hand, tryptophan is an amino acid that once ingested is converted into serotonin and then converted into the hormone melatonin. This combination makes it the ideal drink before bed.

Pamper yourself with this recipe before falling into a deep sleep. Make sure you use 100% pure cocoa without any additives.


  • 2% Skim Milk *Choose the milk of your preference (1 Glass)
  • Cinnamon (1 Raja)
  • 100% Mokra Cocoa Powder (1 and a half tablespoons)
  • Maple Syrup (1 Tablespoon)
  • Salt (a pinch)
  • Vanilla Essence (1/4 Tablespoon)
  • Dark Chocolate (1 Tablespoon)
  • Cream (2 Tablespoons)
  • Chocolate Scraping

First step:

Heat the milk with the cinnamon stick in a saucepan for 5 minutes. Add the cocoa and maple syrup. Stir until the cocoa dissolves with the milk. Keep at a medium temperature, so that the milk does not boil; let it warm up gradually.

Second step:

Add the salt, vanilla essence and the dark chocolate pieces. Continue stirring until you obtain a homogeneous mixture. Remove from heat.

Third step:

Choose your favorite cup and pour the cocoa. Add cream on top (optional) and decorate with chocolate rapadura.

Sit in your favorite chair and enjoy your cocoa before going to sleep!

If you want to take care of the amount of calories, replace the milk with a vegetable milk and omit the use of honey or maple syrup.
