Decadent Raw Chocolate Bars

July 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

Who does not love chocolate?! This recipe kind of just materialized during its making, just simply starting with the coconut oil, agave and the cacao powder, adding ingredients along the way… It is really decadent, and not for the faint-hearted, as the amount of both Coconut Oil and Agave is fairly high, but I have also added a rather good range of nutrient-dense Superpower-Powders to sort of make up for the calorie content and the general richness of the chocolate bars, so you should not feel too guilty indulging in one (or more!) of these:) And; it´s also ingredients for a fairly large batch of chocolate:)!

Raw Chocolate Bars (of the very decadent, full-fat kind)

    • 12 T Coconut Oil
    • 8 T Agave Nectar
    • 8 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Powder
    • 2 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Lucuma Powder
    • 2 tsp Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Maca Powder
    • 2 tsp. Organic Raw Peruvian Carob (I used RawLiving by Kate Magic)
    • 2 tsp.Cayenne Powder
    • 2 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw White Mulberries
    • 2 T Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Goji Berries
    • 3 tsp Vanilla Powder
    • approx.1 tsp.Himalayan Salt
    • 1 tsp Ceylon Cinnamon (or Cassia if you don´t have Ceylon)
    • 50 g.Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cashew Nuts, roughly chopped
    • 50 g.raw unsalted Almonds, roughly chopped
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and spread evenly onto a baking sheet in a baking pan, and place the pan in the freezer to let the coconut oil do its job of solidifying the mixture into firm chocolate bars. When firm, cut the chocolate dough into pieces of your desired size, and enjoy together with a glass of cold Almond or Hemp Milk!

Raw Licorice Caramel Latte

April 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

So, it`s day 8 of Cleanse America here in Denmark, and although my spirit is strong as ever after 8 days of cleansing, I´ve seriously been in need of something sweet today:) This “Latte” completely cures my sweet-cravings, so if you´re in for something sweet for that sweet tooth of yours today, maybe this´ll do the trick?;)

The recipe yields one large portion, although I think some of you might find the sweetness and fullness of it generous enough for two:) My sweet tooth is at least sufficiently satisfied after about 1/3-1/2 cup!

The recipe is adapted from the Christmas Recipe E-book of raw food chef and naturopath Ida Kirk Foged of http://www.rawfood-livsstil.dk/, but reworked with Raw Licorice, Cinnamon and Ginger; three spices very dear to my heart:)

As for the recipe:

  • 3.5 dl Almond Milk
  • 2.5 T Lucuma Powder
  • 1 T Raw Mulberries
  • 2 small dates or 1 Medjool
  • 1 T Chia Seeds
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Raw Licorice Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 pinch Vanilla Powder
  • 1 pinch Himalayan Salt

Blend all ingredients in a blender, pour into a glass, and let it rest for 10-15 min, allowing the Chia Seeds to soak and the latte to thicken. Enjoy!

Superfood Goji-Berry Cacao Concoction

April 16, 2012 § 2 Comments

So, as a part of me joining in on the Cleanse America Event (will make a post about Cleanse America shortly!), my poor low-tech blender has really been put to the test these last few days since the cleanse started on Monday the 10th of April. I have found myself being slightly hooked on, and more or less in craving over smoothies all the time now, and as I do not yet own a juicer, or a Vitamix (ranks no.1 on my wish list!), I have chosen to turn to smoothie-heaven for my daily liquid-love:)!

This particular smoothie has the last couple of weeks become my go-to-smoothie in the mornings, as it is very dense in nutrients, giving my body some powerful fuel to get-up-and-going, as well as it fills me good and well up (buttercup!), making my energy levels last long up until mid-day when it´s time for lunch (and possible yet another smoothie, I should add;).

The recipe could be made without some of the ingredients, without loosing the majority of its taste and lushness (banana, strawberry, goji-berries and cacao excepted), but I find that I like to know that I am putting many vital nutrients into my body, doing it good, at same time as my taste buds gets that sweet taste of, oh; something sweet. Desserts always taste even better when they´re a bit healthy too, or what?;)

Anyways;

Here is the recipe;

  • 100 grams strawberries, frozen
  • 40 grams Goji Berries

  • 1/3 tsp Chlorella Powder
  • 2 dl Almond Milk
  • 1-1.5 dl Hemp Milk
  • 2 dates (or 1 Medjool Date)
