I made these delicious little raw superfood chocolates last week but didn’t have time to post them. We’ve finally arrived in Colombo Sri Lanka after a long journey, and we’ve already had some amazing coconut based curry, explored a little before a major down pour and now I’m sitting in a gorgeous little hotel with the sound of a ceiling fan in my ears
So these superfood chocolates are just too good to be true! They taste amazing, creamy, rich, and slightly nutty; made from completly natural healthy ingredients; just pure organic coconut oil, raw cacao, some nut butter and tahini for an amazing nutty favour and plant based protein and then some added superfood goodies; lacuma, maca and blueberry powder. You don’t need to add the superfood powers as the chocolate is really delicious without them but if you can get your hands on some they really do add something special.
Here’s some more info on the superfood powders in case you’re not familiar with them;
Lacuma – a Peruvian fruit dried at low temperatures. It’s is a low GI sweetener and contains nutrients such as; beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vit B3, calcium and protein. Delicious maplely taste.
Maca – a Peruvian root veg. Source of thiamin, vit B6, calcium, zinc and iron. Delicious malty flavour.
Blueberry powder – Naturally high in vit A, C, E. Full of dietary fibre, low is cals. Source of zinc, copper, potassium, magnisium.
The recipe is also really versatile; you can pour it into a loaf mould, chill and then cut into a slices or squares or you could use chocolate moulds to make individual chocs.
