Hello. My name is Sherrie and I have a chocolate problem. I could eat it every day and never get tired of it. I like it sweet, dark, mild, straight up or in recipes. Cutting out dairy meant cutting way back on store-bought chocolate goodness and getting back into the kitchen for my fix. That wasn’t a problem necessarily, but it wasn’t exactly the best thing for me to do. You know, since I have that problem.
When I was asked if I’d be interested in trying Freedom Superfoods Organic Raw Cacao, I was not opposed. Well, more than that. I was excited; giddy, even. I know that good quality chocolate has health benefits (it’s rich in antioxidants and minerals), but it seems this stuff is even better. According to the folks at Freedom Superfoods, their raw cacao is alkalizing and energizing in addition its fiber, magnesium, potassium, copper, and iron that help keep my blood pressure and energy level on point. It’s non-fermented, organic, raw goodness.
The first thing I did when I received the bag was make a mocha. It was late morning when my shipment arrived and I needed caffeine. I noticed how smooth and fine the powder was. This was not the cocoa powder I was used to. It blended perfectly into my mocha and made my chocolate-loving self smile. I think the flavor did more to lift the afternoon slump than the caffeine.
Freedom Superfoods Organic Raw Cacao has adds rich dark chocolate flavor in anything its added to. When you order a bag, Freedom Superfoods includes an e-book with recipes to try. Instead of following their recipes, I used the raw cacao the way I usually use cocoa powder. I mixed it into smoothies and oatmeal at breakfast, coffee and coconut milk for afternoon lattes and mochas, chili at lunch and dinner, and for dessert, everything. I made raw banana chocolate ice cream, chocolate syrup for topping and dipping, chocolate mousse, and, my current favorite, homemade coconut dark chocolate candy. Thanks to Angela Liddon (Oh She Glows) for that one. she inspired me and sent me on a candy-making spree.
Coconut Oil, raw cacao, and maple syrup = vegan superfood candy bars!
The recloseable bag helps keep the cacao powder fresh until its all gone. At this rate, I’ll finish it by the end of the year. Yes, I plan to give chocolate goodness as holiday presents. If you want your dark chocolate goodness throughout the day like I do, Freedom Superfoods Organic Raw Cacao is the way to go. Check them out on Facebook and see why I love this stuff.

If you’ll excuse me, I have a raw banana chocolate smoothie to finish while I work. I’d share, but, you know, you’re not here with me.
