Hot Chocolate Recipe: Add Kratom To Your Winter Hot Cocoa
- One dose of kratom that can be in the form of either dry leaf or powder
- Hot chocolate mix of your choice
- Distilled water
We would recommend using an instant hot chocolate mix to make your kratom hot chocolate with little hassle. However, if you already have a favorite hot chocolate recipe that you’d like to use, you might want to experiment with it as well! For example, many people prefer to make their hot chocolate with heavy cream to ensure maximum creaminess. It all boils down to your preference! (pun intended)
Here are a few things you should have in order to optimize your delicious hot chocolate recipe.
- Small Weighing Scale
- Your favorite mug
Step 1: Weigh the Kratom
To make sure you’ll be feeling the great effects of kratom hot chocolate, it is vital to experiment a bit with the optimal dosage for you. Given this, weighing your kratom on a small scale is necessary to keep track of how much of the plant you are to consume.
Step 2: Grind Kratom Leaves
Some people like to use kratom powder in making hot chocolate. However, you can still make hot chocolate even if kratom leaves are all that are available to you. If you are using leaves, use a grinder to break them down.
NOTE: It is essential to make sure there aren’t any big chunks of leaves and plant material left. This is because biting into a piece of kratom leaves while enjoying your delicious hot chocolate can leave a bad taste in your mouth. Moreover, leaving out chunks for you to would defeat the purpose of masking the kratom taste in a delicious mug of hot chocolate!
Step 3: Weigh the Chocolate Mix
If you are using a powdered hot chocolate mix, a good option for you is to weigh it out to work out the ratio of kratom to hot chocolate you want. Some kratom enthusiasts prefer going for a 1:1 ratio. Moreover, they would opt to include a gram of kratom for every gram of hot chocolate powder that they are to use. However, it is important to note that this is an optional step. You can always add more hot chocolate powder to your mixture should you find the kratom taste to be unbearable.
Step 4: Combine in Mug
After you have prepared the exact quantities of kratom and hot chocolate mix, combine them into your favorite mug. Here, it is necessary to ensure both the kratom and hot chocolate mix are for a single serving only.
Step 5: Pour in the Boiling Water
You are now very close to being able to enjoy your delightful kratom hot chocolate! Bring a kettle-full of water to a boil and then pour the water into the mug in which you had combined the kratom and hot chocolate mix.
Step 6: Gently Stir the Mixture
Stir the mixture after pouring the boiling water into your mug. This is necessary to make sure the hot chocolate mix dissolves into the water and the kratom remains well-distributed and clump-free.
Step 7: Let the Mixture Rest for 15 Minutes
At this point, your hot chocolate is way too hot to sip on. To avoid sustaining 1st degree burns on your tongue, let the chocolate drink cool down for 15 minutes.
Step 8: Stir the Mixture Again
After waiting for 15 minutes, stir the mixture again. Doing this before finally getting your first sip of this hot chocolate goodness is important to ensure the kratom powder is evenly distributed throughout the drink.
Step 9: Stir in Between Gulps and Enjoy
Keep stirring the kratom hot chocolate mixture in between gulps. This is necessary because otherwise, the kratom would merely collect at the bottom of the mug. Moreover, without persistent stirring, you would be left having to take in an unpleasant mass of kratom at the end of your delicious drink.
NOTE: Maintaining an even distribution would allow you to get through the entire drink without tasting much of the strong kratom taste that you may find to be nauseating.
What Makes This Recipe Great?
Some kratom enthusiasts may feel some nausea following other methods of consuming kratom in its pure form. This nausea often stems from the very strong kratom taste that people often find to be unpleasant. Through consuming kratom along with your hot chocolate, you would be able to mask this undesirable flavor. Given this, a kratom hot chocolate would provide the opportunity to enjoy the great stimulating effects of kratom without having to experience any unpleasant tastes.
People who couldn’t stand the taste of pure kratom often turn to making tea out of an infusion of kratom leaves. This, however, means that you would not be directly ingesting any of the plant material. Given this, grinding up kratom and mixing it in with your hot chocolate allows the plant to retain maximum potency. Moreover, a kratom hot chocolate would enable you to experience the uplifting effects more quickly and efficiently.
This quick and simple hot chocolate recipe is one that would be of great help to people who find it hard to ingest kratom. Moreover, this plant bears a powerful taste, but luckily it can be covered by chocolate!
