It's a rare day when I don't create some sort of chocolate concoction to nourish myself with. I used to feel like I was 'bad' for loving chocolate and eating it so much. I thought it was unhealthy. Until I learned the sacred and super nourishing benefits of raw cacao (Read more about cacao benefits here), then raw chocolate became a really happy and positive treat for me.
There's something about chocolate paired with cherries. I mean, two of the best foods this Mother Earth has gifted us! Do you agree?
I hope you can indulge too with my latest creation. As usual, the simplest ingredients make such a decadent treat.
1 can full-fat coconut milk
1 cup frozen cherries
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
2-3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup
Pinch of sea salt
- Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Let sit for 10-20 minutes to allow it to thicken.
Enjoy every bite!
