Raw Superfood Chocolates

When Detox Your World recently asked me to create a raw chocolate recipe using some of their organic products, I was eager to jump into my kitchen and create something new. With special ingredients like mucuna, lucuma, and coconut cream powder, I decided to make super food chocolates studded with goji berries.

 

If you've never heard of mucuna before, it's a magical bean which is turned into a powder. It has a mild taste and is perfect for adding to chocolate, smoothies, puddings, and pretty much any other raw dessert. Its been used for ages to help balance the body's energies and is a potent aphrodisiac!

Raw Superfood Chocolates

1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon melted cacao butter
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon coconut sugar, powdered*
1/3 cup cacao powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean powder
2 1/2 tablespoons lucuma powder
2 tablespoons coconut cream powder
2 teaspoons mucuna powder 
3 tablespoons goji berries

Once the cacao butter is melted in a bowl sitting on a pot of hot water, sift in the coconut sugar and cacao powder. Whisk in the remaining ingredients except the goji berries. Add the berries last and stir in. Spoon the liquid into Small silicone chocolate moulds that are sitting on a tray. Mine made 21 small chocolates. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before removing from the moulds.

*Powder the coconut sugar in a coffee grinder.

And of course there are many benefits to eating chocolate! Check out this article on Positive Health Wellness about WHY you should be eating MORE chocolate (sounds good right?). I loved this article so thought I'd share it. Read it HERE.
