This sun-dried Cacao Powder is made by grinding up raw Cacao beans (seeds of the Cacao fruit, which grow on the Cacao tree), then extracting the pure oil (Cacao Butter) in a cold-pressing process. The result is a silky smooth powder with deep dark sensual notes of flavour, perfect for all your raw chocolate recipes, smoothies and super creations!
One or two spoonfuls of Cacao Powder can transform many recipes into healthy chocolate treats. Add to smoothies, raw cakes and desserts… and of course make your own raw chocolate.
For a quick raw chocolatey fix:
Mix the following ingredients together in a bowl with a spoon: Your favourite nut or seed butter (almond, brazil, hazelnut, tahini), raw honey or agave syrup, a pinch of salt, a couple of teaspoons of Cacao Powder. Eat as it is, or spread on rice cakes or flax crackers. Delicious!
Cacao is not high in caffeine. It does however contain another stimulant, called Theobromine. Theobromine can have a similar positive effect to caffeine, but not as strong and more long lasting. It will also not cause palpitations and headaches like caffeine can.
