A few years back my doctor gave me this recipe to help curb my sweet tooth and make a healthy treat! I am forever indebted to him. It's delicious and doesn't cause any abdominal upset or breakouts, cause it has NO refined sugar. It's pretty simple and everyone (and I mean everyone) loves it. I do recommend for the Cacao to only get the SuperVital Foods Cacao, as it is NOT bitter. They pick the fruit when it's ripe so it doesn't have the nasty bitterness that many cacao's have. It also has a bajillion (and I mean bajillion) health benefits. To find out more information visit www.supervitalfoods.com.
1/4 cup of Grade B Maple Syrup.
1/2 Avocado (organic if possible)
2 cups of Coconut oil (or substitute)
1/3 cup of SuperVital Foods Cacao. Or less depending on how chocolatey you like it.
1 cup of soaked organic cashews. Soak for 24 hours.
1-3 drops of peppermint essential oil, or peppermint flavoring.
Additional Ingredients to make it more creamy, add 1/4 cup (or to taste) coconut cream
After soaking the cashews overnight, put all ingredients in a high power blender. I use a Blendtec, because I worked there for a while and feel that their quality is amazing. Process it all for a few minutes and then serve in dishes for everyone. Or if you don't want to share, that's totally fine too! I understand. This recipe nourishes your skin from the inside out! It has all the healthy fats that nourish your skin and doesn't cause breakouts.
