Product Description

Chocolate can be good for you! At least, it is when it comes in the form of Certified Organic Cacao Powder. This substance can be used to make a variety of chocolate treats as well as give you a huge nutritional boost.

Raw, unsweetened cacao powder contains small amounts of caffeine, about 12 milligrams per tablespoon. It’s not enough to make cacao powder into a potent stimulant, like coffee. However, this dose is sufficient for a mild energizing effect, especially in the people who are caffeine-sensitive.

Cacao Benefits for Health and Soul

Raw, organic cacao powder is an incredible product because it can boost your mood. It stimulates the production of endorphins, known as happiness hormones. Therefore, snacking on a cacao-based treat is an excellent idea when you are in a desperate need of cheering up.

However, it’s imperative not to overindulge in treats that contain cacao powder, especially when they have sugar in them too. Usually, it’s advised to have about 1-2 tablespoons of this delicious superfood per day, but there isn’t any particular ‘maximum dosage.’

Health-wise, our Organic Cacao Powder is an excellent source of antioxidants. This means it strengthens your body as a whole and improves your general well-being.

Cacao: Nutrition Information

You don’t have to worry about cacao calories much as this food contains so much fiber and essential nutrients, that every extra calorie it brings into your diet is worth it. Due to fiber, it’s great for the digestive and cardiovascular health support.

However, the most valuable things about raw cacao are iron and calcium. Both these elements are difficult to get through diet, so the high level of them in this food makes it an excellent choice for everyone. Vegans definitely should eat it regularly as they might struggle with designing an iron-rich meal plan.

Bodybuilders and athletes, who must mind their calorie intake and need to have more protein and fiber would benefit from unsweetened cacao as well because it contains significant amounts of both. Besides, calcium, magnesium, and manganese help support bone health.

Raw, unsweetened cacao powder is gluten-free and safe to include in any diet.

How to Store and Use Raw Cacao Powder

You can try hundreds of cacao powder recipes for desserts, baked goods, and confections. It also goes very well when added to smoothies or hot drinks. Note that baking cacao might be different from raw cacao powder as the latter doesn’t contain any additives and its natural taste is quite bitter.

When it comes to buying cacao powder, bulk is the best way to go, as technically, it doesn’t expire. The ‘best by’ date on the package is only a direction, not necessarily an irreversible time limit. When unopened, a pack of raw powder can be used for up to 2 years after the ‘expiration’ date. Opened packages should be restricted to one year after the ‘best by’. Note that cacao powder doesn’t spoil, it just loses its beneficial properties over time.

Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

Chocolate Avocado Smoothie
Ingredients:

  • 85 grams cold avocado flesh (~ 1/2 Hass avocado)
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 medium cold banana
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or coconut cream for the paleo / vegan option (see below for more options)
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk, optional (for vegan, dairy-free, or paleo – use non-dairy milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions:

  1. Blend everything together in a food processor (or a blender if you have a very good one – mine requires too much liquid for a thick smoothie like this) until it’s very creamy. Add more milk until it’s the desired thickness.
  2. Serve immediately or keep covered in the refrigerator for up to one day.

Coconut cream (from a can of refrigerated canned coconut milk) or coconut milk yogurt will yield a thick smoothie like you see but you could also use coconut milk for a thinner version.

Enjoy!

Better Than Bulletproof Coffee
INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup/8 oz unsweetened plant milk
  • 1 teaspoon raw cashew butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup (or use stevia to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder

  • 1 cup/8 oz hot coffee


DIRECTIONS:

Heat the plant milk in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a gentle light boil.

While the milk is heating, start adding everything else to your blender pitcher: the cashew butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, cacao powder, mesquite, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour the hot coffee into the blender as well. Then, when the milk is adequately heated, add that to the blender too.

Place the blender pitcher on the blender base with the lid firmly in place. Slowly blend all of the ingredients, gradually raising the speed of the blender until you get to high. Let it go for about 30 seconds. Stop the motor and let the coffee settle for a couple seconds. You’ll see a frothy layer separate.

Pour the better than bulletproof coffee into a mug that you like and lightly dust the top with cinnamon if you like.

Enjoy immediately.
