The health benefits of raw chocolate are amazing:
– antioxidants [mainly flavonoids]
– cancer fighting
– 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.
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
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
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!
