FOOD MATTERS. Yes, it does! Gratitude always for this Naked Truth from which we are all too easily distracted in modern society. If you are what you eat, well…this morning I am a decidedly a homemade almond milk chocolate banana smoothie! …a little nutty and decadently delicious!🌱🌰🌱🍌🌱🍫🌱
Okay…so…this is so unbelievably, irresistibly, orgasmically D E L I C I O U S that I literally made it twice in two days and each time, totally failed to snap a pic before devouring it like the true G O U R M A N D E that I am. Third time’s a charm though, so you’re in luck…finally, I can share the secrets of this maddeningly decadent R A W B R O W N I E with you! But, before you dare…consider yourself warned…this WILL become an addiction…so start thinking brownies for dinner and an extra hour of yoga per day!
½ measure pitted dates (not soaked)
½ measure raw cashews
¼ measure raw organic cacao
Pinch of Himalayan Sea Salt
2 tsp organic cold-pressed coconut oil
1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp raw organic cacao
Mix brownie ingredients in a food processor, processing cashews until finely ground, then adding the rest, mixing until it starts to stick together. Press the mix firmly into individually sized silicon molds. Refrigerate until it holds its shape (approx. 2hrs). Frost generously using the smooth and creamy mix of three simple ingredients, top with your favorite seasonal fruit, indulge immediately and experience the mind-blowing effects of this super simple, totally scrumptious chocolatey goodness! Never again will you consider eating a conventional brownie…ever.
PS: Gotta say…the pic was actually well worth the wait, as I happened (on day 3 of my addiction) to score that fabulously flourescent purple dragon fruit and a succulent mango to top it all off…A M A Z I N G combo both visually and for the tastebuds!
Simple Coconut Oil Chocolates
1/2 cup Cold-Pressed Organic Coconut Oil
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder (raw cocoa powder is preferred)
2 Tbsp Organic Raw Honey (or sweetener of choice: maple, yacon powder, stevia), adjust according to taste
Pinch of fresh vanilla from the pod (optional)
Whisk coconut oil and honey. Add cocoa powder. Whisk well, as honey and oil tend to separate, even while pouring into a silicone ice cube tray or silicone mini muffin tray. Add nuts, seeds or dried fruits as desired. Makes 12. Cool for 30 minutes in the fridge or freezer. ENJOY!
