The health benefits of raw chocolate are amazing:

– cardiovascular [healthy heart]

*contains caffeine & threobromine, which are stimulants so eat in moderation.

In addition to the amazing health benefits, it’s incredibly easy to make & only took 10 minutes to prepare.

Raw Chocolate

Ingredients:

1 c melted refined coconut oil or Shea butter 

1 c maple syrup or any sweetener

1.25  c cacao powder

additions – ginger slices, raisins, blueberries, chia seeds, pepitas, cranberries, coconut flakes anything you want

Directions:

1. melt coconut oil – do not microwave; I boiled water and put the coconut oil jar in the pan until it was all liquid

2. add maple syrup

3. while stirring, add cacao powder

4. freeze

5. enjoy when frozen!

*it melts pretty fast outside, so it must be eaten right away! but the cool part is that if it does melt, simply refreeze it!
