I don’t like chocolate. I LOVE IT! It is the hardest food for me to stay clear of in my diet. I’m obsessed!
If you look on an ingredients list of your average chocolate bar, there are tones of ingredients which are pure chemical shit and are so awful for your body. Chemically produced and unnatural ingredients are alien to your body and cause inflammation and stress to the system while putting your body in an acidic state. That’s why for general internal and external health, it is so important for us to fuel our bodies with healthy, natural foods.
Raw cacao is one of the best beauty foods. It is packed with anti oxidants and has contains powerful phytochemicals which prevent winkle formation. Raw cacao helps to prevent the skin for UV damage, while boosting skin hydration and reducing redness. It helps with circulation to increase blood flow, nutrients and oxygen supply to the skin. Raw cacao is one of the best natural magnesium containing foods to add to your diet to help calm the central nervous system and regulate heart rate which helps with recovery after a hard training session :D. Raw cacao contains the beauty mineral sulfur which is essential for strong hair and nails and beautiful skin. It is also a feel-good food which raises serotonin and endorphins in the brain which increases happiness and libido.
So if you want healthy hair, beautiful skin, strong nails and good sex then get on the raw cacao 😀
White Chocolate Protein Coconut Bars
For the white chocolate coconut center:
- 100g raw cacao butter
- 80g un-sweetned desiccated coconut
- 50g vanilla casein
- 10 drops of coconut extract
For the dark chocolate coating:
- 100g raw cacao butter
- 50g raw cacao powder
- 30g vanilla or chocolate casein
Melt the raw cacao butter in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water over heat. While you wait for the cacao butter to melt, combine the coconut, coconut extract, and casein in a big bowl. When the raw cacao butter is melted, add to the other ingredients and stir until all ingredients are combined. Pour the mixture into bar shaped silicon molds (or if you don’t have the molds use a shallow, square/rectangle glass dish) and place into the freezer to harden.
Melt the raw cacao cutter in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water over heat. While you wait for the cacao butter to melt, combine the raw cacao powder and the casein in a bowl. When the raw cacao butter has melted, mix it into the raw cacao powder and casein mix. Keep stirring until you reach a smooth consistency. Once the coconut white chocolate has hardened, remove from the silicon molds or the glass dish and cut to the size you want each bar. Place each bar individually into the dark chocolate coating making sure it is completely covered then place on a tray covered with baking paper or tin foil. Once each bar is completely coated with chocolate, place back into the freezer until the chocolate layer has hardened. Once the outer chocolate has hardened. Remove the bars from the freezer and do a second coat of chocolate around each bar with the remaining dark chocolate mixture (if you need to reheat the chocolate mix, put it in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water until it has melted again). Place the bars back into the freezer until the final coat has hardened. Any left over chocolate can be drizzled over the top for decoration. Best kept in the freezer in a container.
While the outer layer of chocolate is still soft, try adding other super foods for decoration. Try bee pollen, gojji berries or pumpkin seeds 😀
