Ashwagandha Hot Chocolate {Vegan}

Ashwagandha has been used for over 6,000 years in Ayurveda medicine, which originated in India. Ashwagandha has numerous uses, with reproductive health being one of them. It supports fertility in men and women, and supports sperm health and libido. Ashwagandha is a unique adaptogenic herb, meaning it supports the body’s ability to cope with physical and psychological stressors. Ashwagandha helps manage normal stress levels, which impacts cortisol production (aka: the stress hormone), and encourages deep sleep – both which are very important for successful conception. For more information about ashwagandha and fertility, check out my blog, Ashwagandha For Male Fertility

Ashwagandha Hot Chocolate is delicious, nutritious, and bursting with love ingredients. Both ashwagandha and chocolate are considered aphrodisiacs—another added perk to this recipe! The cayenne and cinnamon belong in this recipe because according to Ayurveda, if one is too cold, having a Vata or Kapha imbalance, fertility is lessened – the body needs to be HOT! Adding the chocolate to this drink makes it divine. If you want to determine your dosha, here's how. 

Ashwagandha Hot Chocolate Recipe

1 Tablespoon Ashwagandha powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 pinch cayenne (or more if you like it spicy!)

Enjoy this daily, or even 2-3 times per day.
