An Ancient Chocolate Recipe to Enhance Romance

An Ancient Chocolate Recipe to Enhance Romance

Nature’s power

By Nick Polizzi founder of The Sacred Science


Long before any explorers set foot on the shores of the New World, the ancient Maya invented a wonderful, delicious and mysterious medicinal food called… chocolate.

Long before Willie Wonka came around, it was known by native cultures as “the food of the gods,” because chocolate, or cacao, can act as a powerful aphrodisiac that awakens the “love hormones” in the body, such as serotonin and dopamine.

It has the power to provide mental clarity, to move you from your head to your heart, and to produce a gentle euphoria.

In Maya society, everyone, rich and poor alike, enjoyed a frothy, rich and delightfully bitter beverage made from this sacred seed. This was true chocolate, used in its purest form to achieve otherworldly states of ecstatic happiness and connection. If you’ve never tried eating raw chocolate, this heart opening experience is not to be missed!

Below is a
one-thousand-year-old hot chocolate recipe that I was taught in my travels
through Maya lands. I hope you enjoy it and share the magic with someone

Maya Hot
Chocolate Recipe:


  • 1 cup
    organic goat or cow milk (Almond or oat milk is a great substitute for

  • 2 tbsp.
    raw cacao powder

    ground nutmeg

  1. In a small
    mixing bowl, stir together cacao and spices.

  2. Adding a
    small amount of the milk, whisk into a paste.

  3. In a
    saucepan, heat remaining milk slowly over medium heat, making sure to remove
    just before boiling.

  4. Slowly add
    the paste to the saucepan and simmer until slightly thickened.

We make this
soul-warming treat in my house all the time, and it’s great for the winter
months. Be careful though — that raw cacao powder is powerful stuff. Don’t
prepare this energizing beverage if you’re hoping to go to sleep in an hour!
