You must try cacao, its the new healthy high!

Have you tried cacao yet? it is amazing and the new healthy trend that is taking the UK by storm.

Raw Cacao (pronounced Ka-cow)

It is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the fat (cacao butter), you can get it in various forms, nibs ( like little chocolate chips), beans, powder and in blocks. It is the purest form of chocolate you can get.

What better than pampering yourself with a hot chocolate made with Sicilian orange oil, cacao, almond milk and maple syrup.

It’s blumming delicious!

Energy boosting Raspberry & cacao smoothie

When you get that afternoon slump instead of grabbing a bar of chocolate blend up an energy boosting smoothie, if you go out to work, make it in the morning and take it with you just make sure you keep it chilled at work. Simple to make and tastes like velvet, you will get a buzz from the cacao and baobab which will last a lot longer than a bar of chocolate.

Perfect for when you need something sweet but have no cake or are trying to be a good girl or boy 😉

This tastes like a fruity carrot cake in a glass, so much more healthier too. We love smoothies!

2 carrots and 2 apples juiced

2 bananas

1/4 bag frozen raspberries – these are best frozen to give the cold taste plus you don’t need ice cubes!

Pop everything in the blender with half teaspoon of ginger or juice a piece of fresh ginger with the carrot and apple, whizz it up and serve.

So yummy and good for you.
