Kratom products possess a bitter flavor. Unless you’re already predisposed to these earthy, bitter palettes, you might not like the taste. Luckily, however, there are many great ways to accentuate this bitter taste and improve your kratom experience. What’s one of our favorite kratom flavor combinations here at Kratom Spot? Kratom chocolate, of course!
According to Karen Page, author of the Vegetarian Flavor Bible, bitterness both stimulates appetite and boosts the power of other flavors, including other sources of bitterness. Chocolate stands as one of the most popular bitter foods in the entire world, making it ideal to combine with your favorite kratom powders.
How to Combine Chocolate and Kratom Powder
Unfortunately, you can’t just sprinkle kratom atop your go-to chocolate bar: kratom powder is too chalky, not the type of texture you want running loose around your mouth. However, chocolate comes in many forms. Let’s look at some of the easiest and most delicious ways to use kratom chocolate!
Kratom Chocolate Milk
We already know that kratom products mix well with drinks, whether it’s tea, orange juice, or even plain old water. But you can take your kratom experience to another level by fusing kratom powder into a cold glass of chocolate milk.
There are many ways to do this. The easiest? Simply buy premade chocolate milk and stir in your desired dose of kratom powder. The sweet, succulent chocolate notes found in the milk will wash the earthy bitterness of kratom away. Furthermore, this method requires the least amount of energy and is as easy as taking kratom with water.
Another way to create kratom-infused chocolate milk is to purchase either chocolate powder or chocolate syrup. If you decide to go this route, we recommend using whole milk. Why not low-fat milk? Well, we’re trying to reduce the bitter flavor of kratom products. Fatty foods are known to cut bitterness better than low or non-fat foods. So the natural fats of whole milk help reduce the bitterness of kratom.
In addition, we also recommend buying chocolate milk products that have the lowest sugar content. While sugary sweets are considered the opposite of bitter foods, the stark difference in flavor might not actually overtake kratom’s bitterness. Instead, try using dark chocolate with low sugar content.
Make Your Own Chocolate Kratom Candies
Chocolate and kratom go hand-in-hand a lot more than you might think. In fact, you can make your own chocolate kratom, right from home! Here’s what you’ll need to get started on this delicious kratom recipe:
- Organic, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (½ cup)
- Organic, Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (½ cup)
- Raw Honey (3 tablespoons)
- Vanilla Extract (½ teaspoon)
- Your Favorite Kratom Powder (1 dose)
You’ll also need a medium-sized saucepan and a candy tray. How do you turn these ingredients into a delicious serving of chocolate kratom? It’s a lot easier than you might think:
- Simmer coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat until melted.
- Slowly stir in your cocoa powder, raw honey, and vanilla extract. Stir for about five minutes or until all ingredients are mixed well.
- Add your kratom powder. Stir for about one minute or until it is mixed well with the other ingredients. NOTE: try your best not to cook the kratom powder, as we just want it to blend well with the other ingredients, not break down.
- Gently pour your mixture into the candy mold.
- Refrigerate for about one hour or until the mixture is completely chilled.
Last step: enjoy the melt-in-your-mouth flavor of chocolate kratom! You can also customize your kratom and chocolate concoctions by adding nuts, dried fruits, or even experimenting with different strains of kratom for diverse effects.
Chocolate, Kratom & Banana Smoothie (Milkshake?)
Yes, we know it’s similar to the kratom chocolate milk we mentioned above. However, fusing chocolate and kratom into an immersion of smoothie goodness may help completely override the bitter taste of kratom products. In your trusty blender, combine:
- Kratom Powder (1 dose)
- Whole Milk (1 cup, adding more as needed)
- Dark Chocolate (we suggest melting your own dark chocolate on the stove with just a touch of coconut oil; however, you can also opt for cocoa powder)
- 1 Banana (diced)
Blend on low, increasing speed to medium if needed. This should create a fusion of chocolate and banana that not only cuts the bitterness of kratom powder but overtakes the taste buds with the tropical, fruity sensations of our favorite yellow fruit.
