Have a Superfood Easter

Have a Superfood Easter

Author -  Good Health

With Easter just around the corner and all those Easter egg hunts to plan, here’s an easy way to indulge without having to endure the guilt afterwards. Create your own chocolatey treats in a way that’s natural and healthy.

Raw Cacao powder contains more antioxidants than both red wine and green tea, and it’s perfect for homemade Easter goodies. Now there’s a good reason for using Raw Organic Cacao powder! It’s no good using commercial cocoa powders because roasting the cacao beans can destroy much of the antioxidant-containing flavonoids which reduces its nutritional value.

The following recipes use unrefined ingredients that are naturally brimming with nutrients and antioxidants. Good Health’s Cacao Powder is a raw organic superfood with a beautiful rich earthy chocolate flavour, which adds depth to baking and raw treats.
