  • Turmeric is known to reduce inflammation and pain, fight free radicals, boost the body’s immune system, support heart, liver and digestive health and have natural antibiotic properties
  • This golden root also inhibits cancer cells, treats depression and improves brain function
  • Natural remedy famed for it’s culinary and medicinal powers
  • Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, and widely used in Indian cooking for more than just its taste and colour
  • Turmeric has been shown to be a potent anti-inflammatory, a powerful antioxidant, helps to reduce cholesterol, and helps to detoxify the liver
  • Maca is also a root, that has been shown to enhance memory, mood and energy levels, especially when used regularly, but also almost immediately after taking it
  • Maca provides similar benefits to caffeine, without the negative side effects of jitters and subsequent energy crashes
  • Mesquite comes from legumes, which are dried and ground to a powder
  • Mesquite has a dark, rich, almost molasses-like taste, and is a good source of potassium, zinc, calcium and magnesium, as well as fibre

Did you know? Studies have shown that uptake of the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, is 2000% better (not a typo) when combined with black pepper, and that combining it with a natural fat, like coconut cream, protects it from stomach acids, assisting with maximum absorption.


  • Mix two teaspoons of Golden Cacao Hot Chocolate with a little boiling water in a mug, and stir to make a paste
  • Then add 200ml of hot milk, water, or both
  • Sweeten as and if desired
  • Stir it up one more time and enjoy a mug of decadent superfood hot chocolate

Nice but not the best tasting hot drink I've had
04/06/2021, By Lindy
I decide to buy a small packet to see if I like this product. The quality of the ingredients is great but unfortunately the taste is not. Probably best to use in a smoothie.
15/03/2021, By Maureen
Wonderful in smoothies
06/02/2021, By Yumna
Not the best tasting drink. But its natural and good for the soul.
28/12/2020, By Lucky
How nice
07/10/2020, By Justine
I didn't expect to like this as much as I did. Warms you up nicely on a cold day.
10/09/2020, By Ravesh
Very happy with the purchase! Tastes great! Thank you Faithful to Nature for always providing the best goods xx
04/09/2020, By Nicky
Delicious. Easy to use.
But quite expensive, I'm not sure that it's real value for money.
20/08/2020, By Duané
Simply delicious! I love this one!
06/08/2020, By PAULS
this product is very enjoyable....yummy in the tummy
28/07/2020, By Karen
A very nice tasting tumeric hot chocolate and I'm very happy with the product.
18/07/2020, By Marcelle
Expensive, but tastes great.
01/07/2020, By MaDaph
I can now have my hot chocolate without regrets. Hmmm yummy.
16/06/2020, By Ty
I love turmeric, but this tasted literally like turmeric and boiling water ~ there is barely any cocoa in this little concoction AT ALL and you can literally make your own and make it taste so much better... Sorry Taka, this is my first bad review. But this is a terrible waste of money.
08/05/2020, By Phylis
Loving this hot chocolate
19/04/2020, By LYNN
13/02/2020, By Deleen
I like this product. It can be overpowering/ strong but I reduce the amount used. Very warming and I find it relaxes me. A little pricey for the quantity, I think .
27/01/2020, By Chane
This is a delicious nourishing drink and a great alternative to any sugar loaded hot beverage! Perfect when mixed with half coconut/half full cream milk!x
27/06/2019, By Tara
Perhaps I made this incorrectly but I found this completely inedible. Far too strong and hardly a substitute for hot chocolate. No thank you.
21/06/2019, By Lorraine
Such a delicious drink! Warms you right up with its flavourful tastes, love it!
03/06/2019, By Maryke
I love this during winter with coffee or even just by itself.
27/05/2019, By Tshifaro
I did not enjoy this at all, I am not a fan of Cinnamon so that's probably why i did not like it. It just tasted like hot cinnamon
15/04/2019, By candace
Not a fan :(
26/02/2019, By Marietjie
Not bad. Nutral taste. I realized however that I actually prefer the golden latte mix if I add a little cacao powder to it myself.
19/01/2019, By Loren
This tastes lovely! Occasionally I'll add it to my coffee and the flavours are exotically divine!
05/11/2018, By Jenna
This is really good stuff - decadent & I really enjoy it. Just a bit pricey for me though , so won't be able to order it as much as I would like
03/11/2018, By Jenna
24/10/2018, By Nokhanyo
I was met by the scent of fruit cake when I opened the packet so I was understandably a bit sceptical at first (never really been a big fan of the stuff). I immediately changed my mind after the first sip. It was the best hot chocolate I'd ever had. I didn't expect it to be really chocolately but I didn't really mind that's not why I bought it and I didn't really mind the sediment at the bottom of the cup. Never really had hot chocolate without sediment. Plus I felt perkier after drinking it.
18/10/2018, By Hlengiwe
I just love the hot chocolate! I can't do dairy so I keep away from the other hot chocolates but this one with coconut milk! Heaven!
10/08/2018, By Alicia
Fantastic product! Bought this for my mom who has Spondyloarthritis. Definitely makes for more of a "treat"ment compared to the usual meds.
08/08/2018, By Bella
I love this product! Its really spicy and comforting. I make it with coconut cream and honey and find it a real treat. Its a very good substitute for coffee and milo. I agree that is is very pricey though.
07/08/2018, By Monique
It's ok... the only milk i had at the mo when i tried a cup was oat milk, so i used mostly hot water and a bit of oat milk, but that made it too "watery" for me, so if you like it creamy, use only milk instead. I imagine it might be nice with coconut milk, or even whole raw milk, or even 100% oat milk (the one from Lifestyle Foods)
I won't be trying it again unfortunately as maltodextrin is an ingredient which i'm avoiding, so if they haven't updated the website yet, just beware that it also contains that (as well as gum acacia).
Also, it wasn't quite chocolatey enough for me, so i'd probably add more cocoa powder, as well as some sort of sweetener to make this drink yummy for me.
It does feel a bit pricy. But then again compared to a cup of coffee or latte at the coffee shop, it doesn't feel so expensive anymore.
23/07/2018, By Melissa
A bit small for the price sadly but has a nice spice to it, just make sure to blend as much as possible but beware the residue at the bottom of your cup on that last sip ;)
14/07/2018, By Rolandi
They do state that some of the ingredients don't dissolve but the residue is really a lot. Also a bit pricey. It's more worthwhile for me to buy organic raw cacao and turmeric powders separately and make my own. This way you have more control over the flavour balance. But I'm glad I tried it.
28/06/2018, By Annette
Didn’t do it for me. To be honest I prefer their Golden Latte. It has a grainy texture and a fairly strong chili after taste to it. Not chocolatey enough for hot chocolate in my opinion.
18/06/2018, By Giulia
Exactly as the Golden Latte, this hot chocolate has an absolutely delicious flavor, especially if you add it to a mix of almond milk and coconut milk.
I was a bit disappointed by Faithful to Nature for the poor transparency on the ingredients: the ones listed are not the only ones and, in fact, the box states that it contains maltodextrin, which I usually try to avoid. More accuracy would have gotten it a 5th star.
Other than that, a wonderful product.
08/06/2018, By Ron
Not entirely sure how I feel about this one - there's something in the mix which clashes with the cacao for me and makes for a very strange taste experience.
16/05/2018, By Ayesha
i had no idea cacao and turmeric goes together until i tried this. was pleasantly surprised, warm and comfy feeling after having a cup of this yummy golden cacao.
Would recommend the smaller serving size if you are unsure and want to give it a try first.
05/04/2018, By Kylie
Love this latte!
21/03/2018, By Ashlea
Definite coconut taste, but otherwise I like the little zing with this cocoa. I add it to coffee for a mocha
09/02/2018, By Stevie
I like it a lot, I boil it up on the stove with some coconut milk and cinnamon
29/01/2018, By Annie
It's overpriced.. It's ok, however even after alot of Stirling it doesn't seem to completely dissolve which isn't very nice. Feels abit grainy or sandy at the back of ur throat. The different flavours coming together is nice though.
29/01/2018, By J
I found it incredibly delicious especially for something so good for you.. I added cold milk to it and drank it straight away after stirring so there was no sludge at the bottom of the cup. A bit pricey but a very good mix of healthy ingredients, very tasty.
29/01/2018, By Nonj
I got a taste of it as a gift/sample from something else I purchased on the site. I loved the smell when I opened the packet, and had it in the evening. I loved the taste, definitely would love to have it again. I'm not into sweet things, so I didn't add any sweetener to mine, still yummy. Thanks for the sample!
29/01/2018, By Gwen
I don't do dairy so tried it with almond milk but that was awful. Will try again sometime with milk and see
29/01/2018, By Eugene
Healthy Hot Chocolate... who knew such a thing would exist.

It's got a very dark chocolate flavor but you can also taste there's some healthy goodies in there. After drinking this drink you will feel warmer... or maybe it's just the cacao & turmeric doing it's thing.

I use 2 fairly high scoops of teaspoon. Add little boiling water first. Add a dash of milk(maybe a little more than you would add for your coffee). Then stir crazy for 30seconds. Then top up with another 150ml of boiling water.

Awesome item to have in your kitchen this winter.
29/01/2018, By Amanda
Tasty but too expensive,from a distance it looks like there is a lot of hot chocolate as soon as you open it there is little of it-The packaging makes it look like there is a lot of the hot chocolate.

I feel like the sediment at the bottom of the cup after drinking is a waste.
I am very impressed by the prompt delivery.
Keep up the good work,Guys!
29/01/2018, By Bronwen
This tastes wonderful.
I like to have a cup a day but find if I drink more than than (2 and above) it tends to have detox effects on me. I get a headache and stomach issues.
29/01/2018, By Estee
Super yummy with a bit of spice - thoroughly enjoyed this hot chocolate.
29/01/2018, By Sandra
I like it, but not as chocolaty as I'd hoped it would be!
29/01/2018, By Deidre
I thought this was delicious - chocolatey and spicy but not too sweet. Had it at bedtime and had the best night's sleep!
29/01/2018, By Ash
I love the combination of flavours in this drink and have started having in the evenings just before bed time, with half a teaspoon of honey. Would highly recommend!
29/01/2018, By Holly
Soo yum! Never thought it would be possible to find a healthy hot chocolate! If you make it with half almond milk and half hot water and add some honey it's just perfect.
29/01/2018, By Karen
I like this one - although I thought it had more cacoa powder in (only 19%) and no cocoa, but totally redeems itself with the cacoa jand other organic ingredients - Tumeric, Maca; Mesquite, Cayenne etc.. Nice warm chocolaty flavour with a touch of tumeric taste. Been enjoying it in this wintery weather we've been having!
29/01/2018, By Heleen
I love this! Great taste and then it is healthy too!
29/01/2018, By Sherona
Yummy. I prefer to add it to my breakfast smoothie.
29/01/2018, By Hannetjie
to spicy
29/01/2018, By Mietie
A hearty chocolaty taste that conjure up images of a cold wintersday in front of a warm fireplace. The spicy taste is purrfect. We prefer to add a little honey or Xilitol with it.
29/01/2018, By Rene
Wow. I must say I am super impressed with this very healthy hot chocolate. I am a chocoholic and it is really difficult to find yummy alternatives to the sugar-laden store bought stuff. I also was also desperate to find an easier way to get my turmeric in! But this product is at the top of my list! I only use one tsp and add about 1/4 of carob powder, which makes it all the more scrumptious while adding a touch of sweetness. And it feels great knowing that I am getting a lot of superfood goodness while enjoying a cuppa. Of course it isn't all soluble, which I don't expect from such a healthy product, so from about halfway through I just give it a swirl before I sip. Would drink this all day if I didn't need my water, kombucha and coffee as well... ;) Thanks Taka and F2N!!
24/01/2018, By Jenece
This Hot Chocolate is delicious. Even better because I know it is good for me too. The only reason I have given it 4 stars is because the coconut flavour is not strong enough. Definitely worth a try!
