Radiantly Raw Lifestyles by Summer Sanders

Hi, my name is Summer. Thank you for visiting Radiantly Raw. It began 3 years ago as a health, fitness, and lifestyle blog that I started in order to share my raw food journey. Since then, it has morphed into so much more! Be Radiantly Raw opened up many doors and connections for me. I was able to work for my raw food hero, Matthew Kenney, start my online cleansing business, write two raw food recipe books (Alive: a guide to becoming radiantly raw is due out in mid March), start my own raw food delivery business, and help people make lifestyle changes that not only served them, but their children, and future generations. Raw, Vegan food is my passion, when you combine raw food, a conscious lifestyle, and self-awareness, what you get is a trio that can shoot you to the moon! Radiantly Raw is a hub where you can get your raw food products, inspiring books, educational services, recipes, fitness guidance, and live food connection. It is a mecca of life, love, and food. I love connecting with you, if you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to email me
With love, light, and blessings.

Hot Chocolate Alternative: 

Is it cold out there? Want a little something sweet and spicy to warm you up?

This healthy herbal spin on classic hot chocolate is dark and rich and decadent. Especially with roasted dandelion root, a pinch of hot cayenne powder, a cinnamon swizzle stick, and a dollop of homemade vanilla bean whipped cream swirled on top. Ooooh! I feel all cozy just thinking about it. You can adjust the spicy heat to your liking by adding more or less cayenne. A little goes a long way in this recipe. Enjoy this wonderful treat and keep warm out there!

Cocoa Ingredients

3 tbsp organic roasted dandelion root

2 tbsp organic cacao nibs

½ cup organic half & half, whole milk, or milk alternative of your choice

½ tsp organic vanilla extract

Pinch of organic Cayenne powder

organic cinnamon stick

Raw local honey to taste


In a pot, bring  3 cups of cold water, roasted dandelion root, and cacao nibs to a simmer and gently decoct for 30 minutes. Strain out the herbs and return the liquid to your pot. Pour in the milk, vanilla extract, and cayenne powder. Add one spoonful of honey at a time and dissolve over very low heat until you reach desired sweetness. Stir until combined and serve in your favorite cup. Top with a dollop of Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream (see recipe below) and add a cinnamon stick for stirring!
