HERE IS MY "GO TO" RECIPE FOR A SUPER QUICK AND HEALTHY SNACK OPTION THAT HELPS SATISFY A SWEET TOOTH. IT'S GREAT FOR A GUILT FREE CHRISSY TREAT AND IS A HIT WITH CHILDREN TOO. IT'S NUTTY, FRUITY, CHOCOLATEY AND COCO-NUTTY, YUMMO!
We all know how good a source of protein and how good for us nuts and seeds are, that fruit is full of fibre and Cacao is a superfood. Well here's a recipe that has all bases covered.
Raw Cacao Powder is cold pressed without solvents (unlike Cocoa Powder) and as such has a much higher nutrtional content. It generally has over 360% more antioxidants than regular Cocoa. Thats 14 X's more potent anti-oxidants than red wine, 21 X's more than Green Tea and 7 X's more than dark chocolate.
Cacao is a great source of phytonutrients and is now considered a "Superfood". It contains aminos, protein, niacin, calcium, chromium, zinc, iron, copper, sulphur, potassium and is one of the worlds best food sources of Magnesium which is muscle relaxing and stress relieving and possibly the reason that chocolate is craved by women each month. It's a great excuse to indulge!
Cacao is generally grown in Peru or Mexico and of course you should always look for Organic and Fair Trade. That way you are assurred of a quality product that is grown in a sustainable an ethical manner, that way everyone wins, the grower/harvester, the environment and the lucky people that get to eat it.
So really, do you need any more reasons to try my recipe?Read more
