Cacao Peppermint Truffles:


ingredients:

  • 2 T to 1/2 C Cacao Magic (depending on how chocolatey you want them)
  • 4 Medjool dates
  • 1/2 C almond meal (I get it from trader joes–much cheaper than any other brand)
  • 1-2 T Green Dream
  • 4-5 drops chocolate stevia
  • 4 T coconut oil
  • 1 t peppermint extract (more if you want more)
  • raw cacao nibs and/or unsweetened coconut flakes for coating

directions:

Melt your coconut oil so it’s completely liquid. In a food processor, mix the dates and almond meal. Then add half the coconut oil, green dream powder and cacao magic powder. Process til it’s not powdery; add a few drops of coconut oil if it is. Add the rest of the coconut oil, peppermint extract and stevia and process until it’s a smooth thick consistency. If it’s too powdery, add more coconut oil. When you get the desired consistency, take out of the food processor and put in a bowl. Here you can add any toppings you want- I usually do coconut shreds and/or cacao nibs or squish a few goji berries into the center. 

Roll into balls and put into fridge over night or the freezer for one hour. Then pop them in your mouth for a delicious, healthy, superfood treat!


Cacao Magic Hazelnut Cake


ingredients (makes 5 2×3-inch frosted cakes): 

  • 2 C hazelnuts
  • 1 C pitted dates
  • 3/4 C Cacao Magic
  • 1/2 C + 2 T maple syrup or agave, divided
  • 1 medium ripe avocado
  • Crushed hazelnuts for garnish
directions:
  1. Pulse the hazelnuts in a food processor until finely ground into a flour. Add in the dates, 1/2 C Cacao Magic powder, and 1/4 C maple syrup/agve and process until it forms into a thick dough that sticks together.
  2. Lay the dough out between two sheets of parchment paper and roll to about 3/4-inch thickness.
  3. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into either 8 or 10 equal sized rectangles. If there’s excess dough you can form it into a ball, roll it out, and cut again.
  4. Make the frosting by blending together the remaining maple syrup/agave, Cacao Magic powder, and the meat from the avocado until it’s uniform in color and texture. Taste it and adjust the sweetness if need be.
  5. Spread about 2 T of frosting over half of the cakes. Layer with another slice and spread an equal amount of frosting on top of that piece.
  6. Garnish with crushed hazelnuts.

  • 1/2 t fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 t pink sea salt

"Cheesy" Kale Chips



ingredients:
  • 1 large bunch of  kale

Rinse the kale and spin dry. Remove the stems and tear into bite size pieces. Let the kale air out as much as possible before coating. Blend the ingredients for the cheesy seasoning in the blender until smooth. Transfer kale and seasoning to a large bowl and mix well using your hands to ensure the leaves are well coated. Spread kale leaves out on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until leaves are crisp when shaken in pan.

Berry Bliss Mocktail 


ingredients:

  • 1 lemon for twists
  • 2 cups ginger ale, chilled
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice, chilled
  • 1 T Berry Bliss
  • ice cubes
  • 1 cup seltzer (or more to taste)
directions:

To make lemon twists for the garnish, use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of peel from the lemon, leaving as much white pith on the lemon as possible. Blend Berry Bliss and seltzer in blender.

In a pitcher, combine the ginger ale and pomegranate juice. Fill wine glasses with ice. Divide the liquid among the glasses, leaving room for seltzer. Pour the Berry Bliss seltzer into each glass, to taste. Twist the peel and rub a strip on the edge of each glass. Drop the twist into the drink and serve.
