IT IS YUMMY and so healthy.
You can also make maca bars that Brendan Brazier put out as a recipe for Mother’s day. Those are one of my favorite treats! Raw cacao, maca, maple syrup, macadamia nuts, coconut….yummmmm. They make a delicious (and good for you!) treat.
You can make protein bars with raw cacao and hemp protein and a few other wonderful ingredients including coconut oil.
There are so many raw goodies you can make with cacao that are really healthy. The one feeling I think I can say that I consistently get when eating chocolate is “decadence”, frivolous and lovely indulgence of the sweetest and healthiest kind. I make smoothies with cacao, coconut milk, banana, spinach and that is it. It is healthy as can be and it tastes delicious!
David Wolfe’s established recommended moderate daily intake is 1 cacao bean per 11-17 pounds of body weight. If you weigh 150 pounds you would eat about 10 cacao beans a day.
