Mayan Mocha Powder

Rated as 4.4 out of 5 Stars

"Years ago I worked in a little coffee shop. We had a powdered cocoa mix with spices that was called Mexican Spiced Cocoa. On the can were directions for mixing it with espresso to get Mayan Mocha. I fell IN LOVE with that drink and have been searching for a replacement ever since. The coffee shop inside Hastings has a similar drink, but won't sell the mix to me for home use. So I researched a little, tested a little, and came up with this. To serve, stir 1/4 cup mix with 1 cup hot water and stir."

I know it’s June and in the 90’s in Florida, but I was intrigued by this recipe’s ingredients. Had to give it a try. I’m glad I did because I really liked it. I substituted Truvia for the sug...

Just okay. Was kind of flat like it was missing something.


I really liked the favors, but the suggested 1/4 cup of mix per mug of hot water was way too rich. I use 2 Tbl of mix and it tastes great.
