Chocolate Nettle-Latte + How To Eat A Wild Nettle Leaf

nettle

Okay super-yum this up.

Make a batch of strong NETTLES TEA. You can do it sun-tea style by soaking the nettles in water in a sunny spot or over night, or you can put the leaves in a big pot of water, bring it just before boil, and let it steep. Like 1 cup nettle leaves to like 8 cups water.

Make sure the water is not too hot. Pour about 4 or 5 cups into your VitaMix, BlendTec or other blender.

Add 3/4 cup soaked nuts or seeds of your choosing.

Add 3/4 cup raw cacao nibs.

1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp. prepared vanilla (gluten free is best.)

1/8 tsp. high quality sea salt.

Blend on high until smooth.

STRAIN with NUT MYLK STRAINING BAG (My favorite one is made by Elaina Love!)

Pour liquid BACK into the blender.

Add in 3 tbs. raw honey (this is my preference. you can use stevia, dates, agave, yakon as desired instead or have it bitter w/out sweets.)

Blend until warm. (it may be still warm from the nettle tea, or you can transfer it into a ceramic coated pot, and put on very low heat, stirring until warm to the touch. DON’T LEAVE THE STOVE! STIR CONTINUALLY!)

Top with ::
a. nothing!
b. sprinkle of cinnamon!
c. sprinkle of raw chocolate powder!
d. sprinkle of grated cacao butter!
e. sprinkle of hemp seeds!
f. dash of sea salt!
g. dash of your favorite green powder!
h. bee pollen!
i. a combination of these!

Deeelicious!

Nettles are very highly mineralized and a great part of your regular herbal cornucopia! They grow wild in many parts of the country. Eating them Raw feels really energizing! You have to fold back the edges on the nettles and fold them into little squares so the little stingers won’t touch your mouth. You pop in that little square and chew it up!
