Frozen Chocolate Bliss 2

We’ve tried making popsicles out of Chocolate Bliss, however it settles so quickly in the popsicle mold, that it doesn’t turn out right from a straight pour. To make popsicles you need to add some more fiber and fat to the Chocolate Bliss to keep it from settling.  We’ve found this works best by blending the standard Chocolate Bliss recipe with some cashews or avocado. A ratio of about 2 parts liquid Chocolate Bliss to 1 part cashews or avocado works well for the popsicle structure and makes the flavor a little more milk-chocolatey. If you prefer a stronger chocolate […]

Impromptu Turtles 1

Dan was craving Turtles – you know those candy bars that have pecans covered in caramel and chocolate? Store-bought, mainstream chocolate tastes pretty gross to me these days, so I decided to throw together some ingredients to satisfy the Turtle craving. Here’s the quick and easy solution: Start by making the raw chocolate sauce … Raw Chocolate Sauce ½ Cup Cacao Powder ¼ Cup Coconut Oil (melted) ¼ Cup Vanilla Agave Nectar Put the cacao powder in a small mixing bowl and make sure it doesn’t have any lumps.  If you find any, press them against the side of the […]

Goji-Filled Chocolate Candies

While playing around in the kitchen, I created this recipe on a whim.  I decided to blend 3 cups of goji berries in my Vitamix with the intention of making a powder-like substance.  But instead, it turned into a pliable-dough-like treat.  So I rolled them into little balls, and refrigerated them.  That’s when I got the idea to coat them with chocolate!  This raw dessert recipe very much reminds me of cherry-filled chocolate candies.  Only unlike those cherry treats, goji berries have anti-aging properties, detoxify the body, they protect your adrenal organs, and balance the immune system. 3 cups of […]
