I love making chocolate treats! They are so easy to make that I don’t ever buy chocolate from the store. My body and stomach feels much better when I eat home made chocolate.
Cocao is known to be superfood! There is something to chocolate and women craving it at certain times of the month. I found myself just last month eating 1/2 a cup of cocao nibs 1 day before I “started”. Now…. cocao nibs are not sweet, at all! They are pretty bitter so I know I wasn’t eating them for the sugar factor. My body really did crave an element in the nibs that helped with hormonal levels, I truly believe.
OK, on to the Great video! We are going to add a decent amount of sweetener to liven up our taste buds. So that’s why this is a treat to have once in a while or after a hard workout at the gym. Not something we have everyday.
1/2 Cup Raw Cacoa Powder
1/2 Cup Raw Cacoa Butter (optional/my preference- raw coconut oil)
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/8 tsp Stevia
1/3 Cup Agave Nectar or Honey
dash of salt
Step 1. Melt the Raw cacoa butter or coconut oil in a pan over very low heat. constantly stirring.
Step 2. Measure 1/2 cup of butter/oila fter it’s melted and put in the blender.
Step 3. Add the remaining ingredients to blender
Step 4. Blend for 10-15 seconds.
Step 5. Pour into molds or dish
Step 6. Put in refrigerator or freezer to harden chocolate
Step 7. Take chocolate out of frig or freezer when firm. (if you used coconut oil, you need to leave chocolate in frig since it may melt at room temperature). Cocao butter will stay firm at room temperatures.
In the future I’ll show you ways to make really fun exotic, sassy chocolate! You won’t believe the flavors that go well with chocolate, like Chipotle? Who knew?!
Live a Beautiful Life!
