Mucuna Mocha

From Spa City Local Farm Market Co-op

<p>This delicious, dark, chocolately beverage is mildly stimulating and uplifting to the mood.<br /> Mucuna contains a cocktail of chemicals that can have a noticeable influence on the mind. Like all things, start off with less and add more as you feel inclined. This would be one to serve to your friends or those that may not be used to herbs or anything healthy.<br /> Mucuna has a dark coffee like flavor, shilajit is rich and smoky, and in combination with the cacao powder the result is a very delicious beverage.<br /> This elixir will make you feel clear mentally, and will give you energy for several hours.</p>
