ChocolateOrangeGanache{20141211122052}.jpg

Ingredients to make two servings:

  • 2 ripe avocados, stoned and peeled
  • A pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 4 T raw cacao powder
  • 2-3 T coconut nectar or any other liquid sweetener
  • 1 t vanilla seeds (optional)
  • 3 T raw coconut oil or cacao butter, melted*
  • 2 T fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 t finely grated orange peel and/or food grade orange oil
  • A few slices of fresh orange and mint leaves for presentation

Scrape the flesh from the avocados into a blender.

Add the cacao, salt, vanilla, orange juice, coconut oil or cacao butter, sweetener and orange peel and/or orange oil. Blend all the ingredients together into a creamy concoction.

Prepare the presentation part by arranging a few slices of fresh orange with mint leaves at the bottom of each glass.

Spoon the ganache on top of the orange. Gently shake the glass, letting the mixture ‘hug’ the fruit and leaves. Place the decadent desserts in the refrigerator for a few hours. Before serving, garnish with more orange and mint leaves, as well as cacao.

A tip: Avocados do not taste like avocados when they are hanging out with raw cacao and orange. However, if you happen to dislike them, replace with frozen bananas

Enjoy.

Take good care of yourself and the world we live in!

Chia seeds are known as a warrior food.
It makes great breakfast, gives inner strength and makes us more beautiful inside out.
2 T each day is making a big difference to how we feel, how our skin looks and how our digestion works.
There are a few ways to use this magical food.

here is how we make a pudding that everyone seems to love.

#Recipe
We need:
-2 T chia seeds soaked in 1/2 cup water
(from 30 mins to overnight)
-2 T nut milk ( I like coconut or hemp)
-bunch of berries or your favorite fruits (banana, mango, etc) cut Into small chunks.
-New Earth sweetener - stevia, coconut nectar, maple syrup or just dates and raisins.
-Your favorite yogurt (coconut or whatever you like )
-Porridge or granola (optional)
-Raw Cacao nibs (optional)

How to:
Soak chia seeds in water and nut milk (it turns it white rather than keeping it boring grey)
Sweeten it if you wish with your choice of new earth sweetener. Mix well.
Pour the yumminess to the bottom of a glass bowl.
Throw a bunch of berries in, can add porridge/granola in between the layers.
Top it up with  yogurt...berries, cacao nibs. Imagination is everything 😄💛💫
Play with your food. 
Make it exciting and fun.
Tip: you can color your pudding: to turn it purple - add 1 T fresh beet juice, to make it green - add some matcha powder to nut milk, to make it blue -  use anchan (blue pea) flower tea. 
It makes me happy knowing that more and more people are waking up to the modern food reality and take health back into.their hands.

  • 2 T sweetener of your choice, such as coconut flower/date sugar OR Maple/Agave syrup
  • A pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 3 T raw cacao butter or raw coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ t vanilla seeds

 Combine cacao powder with salt, vanilla and sweetener. Add the melted cacao butter or coconut oil. Mix well.

When the chocolate fluid of life is ready, lovingly pour it into the little round forms to create the baskets. Place them in the refrigerator for no longer then ten minutes to semi harden.

While waiting, prepare the nuts and design your creations, giving it loving thought. Get the chocolate baskets out and fill them up with nuts any way you wish. This is your chance to chocolate rock-n-roll.

Transfer back to the refrigerator for another 30 minutes.

A tip: Little mint leaves, stripes of orange peel, cacao nibs, dried or fresh flowers, shredded coconut, edible gold flakes, and much more can be used to make this creation absolutely rock.
