Leave a comment

Who needs Smucker’s Magic Shell chocolate ice cream topping, when you can MAKE magic shell chocolate ice cream topping? Seriously, easiest and most rewarding recipe EVER! Use it on ice cream or drizzle it between apple slices and coat berries and fruit with it. I’m sure there are a million other ways you can get creative with this stuff, so, get on it!

½ cup Unrefined Coconut Oil
¼ cup Raw Cacao Powder
10 drops Stevia (You may also use 2 tbsp. raw honey if Stevia is not available)

Throw it all in a bowl and blend well! I use an egg beater.

Store in an airtight glass jar.
The chocolate hardens upon cool impact.
If it solidifies on your shelf, hold it under hot water until it melts prior to use.

No-Name Cacao Shake

Leave a comment

Every morning when my alarm goes off at 7am, although usually I am up earlier to feed my hungry 5 month old daughter. I roll out of bed, wash my face, and head into the kitchen to prepare breakfast. So far I haven’t gotten too creative with my 20 month old daughter’s breakfast, she’s pretty happy with cinnamon raisin oatmeal or seasoned scrambled eggs. However, for my husband and I, we stick to the same breakfast every single morning. The same thing! Do we ever get sick of it? Absolutely not! People say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and we take this so seriously! The shake I am about to share with you is packed with powerful superfoods that will keep you running ALL day!

To know the true potential of this amazing shake, for which I have not come up with a name, click on the ingredients links! The benefits of each individual ingredients are countless! This thing is 100% superfood!

2 cups of cold, purified water
3 tbsp. raw cacao powder
3 tbsp. chia seeds
3 tbsp. hemp seeds
3 tbsp. unrefined coconut oil
3 tbsp. raw honey
5 dates (pitted)
+ 1 tray of ice (about equivalent to another cup of water)

Blend everything but the ice. Blend well! Feel free to throw in a banana or two!
Add the ice, blending a few cubes at a time.

Note: I’ve noticed if you throw the ice cubes in right away, the dates will not blend well, and you’ll have chunks in your shake…

If you like super rich, decadent chocolate, look no further! Not only is this pudding delicious, but it’s completely raw! You got it! No sugar, preservatives, toxins; 100% raw! This chocolate is SO good for you, you could replace dinner with this dessert! Check out the benefits of each ingredient as you check them off your list!

¼ cup Dates
¼ cup Honey
½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
¾ cup Avacados
¼ cup + 2 tbsp. Cacao Powder
¼ cup Water

Begin by soaking the dates in water.
I cut them into chunks as I measured them, and soaked them as I mashed the avacados.

Next, mash the avacado.
I ended up using about 1½ avacados, and fed the last half to my infant and toddler 🙂

In a blender, combine the dates, honey and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth.

Add the avacado and cacao powder. Blend until creamy.
Make sure you’re scraping the sides as needed!

Add the water and blend briefly.

Store the pudding in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
This pudding will stay fresh for three days in the fridge, or two weeks in the freezer.

Serve chilled!
