Make your very own Conscious Crave Raw Chocolate with this decadent recipe:
1/2 cup agave/maple syrup/honey, or you can use a paste of dates and water
3/4 cup cacao powder
2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
Mix all ingredients until smooth and ridiculously delicious-looking. I highly recommend adding other ingredients like mesquite powder, sea salt, vanilla, or anything else that could take this to another level!
Spread the chocolate love out on some wax paper, ice cube trays or silicon moulds to form chocolate (or if making chocolate chips - dollop on with a spoon or icing bag) and put it in the fridge for an hour .
Then, you know what to do.
You can find the Conscious Craves girls on Facebook here.
Now - I'm off to make some chocolate.
Happy cooking, much love - Gypsea x
