1. Cacao & Maca
Raw cacao and maca are two very powerful superfoods. Raw cacao is one of the richest sources of antioxidants known. It’s high in magnesium, and helps to boost serotonin and endorphins for a positive and happy mood.
Maca is an adaptogen that helps to fight fatigue and boost energy. It’s also a potent natural sexual activator. The flavour of maca is quite strong by itself, but it pairs perfectly with cacao for a decadent and slightly caramel flavour.

2. Matcha & Mango
Matcha is a green tea powder that is extremely rich in nutrients, antioxidants, fibre and chlorophyll. It’s perfect as a coffee replacement due to it’s cognitive boosting power, with none of the caffeine crashes associated with coffee. Mango is also high in antioxidants, as well as being alkalising, and improving eye and skin health. The creamy green tea flavour of matcha pairs perfectly with mango, and makes one very nutritious combination.
