Who would’ve thought eating chocolate could add nutrition to your diet? Cacao powder is the number one essential when you’re living a raw food lifestyle. It’s great for making hot chocolates, raw chocolate making, cakes, energy balls, fudge and smoothies… the list goes on!

Here are a few chocolaty desserts that I’ve made using Good Health NZ’s raw high-quality cacao powder. These recipes are gloriously simple and 100% nutritious.

CHOC BERRY MUD WITH AVOCADO, SPINACH AND BERRIES
INGREDIENTS (SERVES 2)
·       1/2 cup frozen berries.

·       1/2 medium ripe avocado.

·       1 cup baby spinach.

·       1/4 cup raw cacao powder.

·       1/2 teaspoon granulated stevia.

·       pinch vanilla powder.

·       trays ice cubes.

DIRECTIONS
Blend all the ingredients using a blender, preferably a high-powered one. If you’re using a regular blender or stick blender, add a little water. Pour into bowls and serve immediately.

NOTE
You can use the quantities given here to make 4 smaller serves, if you prefer. Pour into little teacups and freeze, then you can pull one out, let it thaw for about an hour, and eat on a hot afternoon when you ‘need’ chocolate.
