Raw Cacao Powder Recipes

Do any of you use raw cacao powder? I can't believe how much better it tastes than the regular cocoa powder from the store that I have used all of my life.

Supposedly raw cacao powder has more nutrients than the processed stuff. (Makes sense to me! )

Here are a couple of recipes:

My 5 year old's favorite breakfast - he calls it "Chocolate Museli"

  • 1/2 cup dry quick oats
  • 1 teaspoon raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • pinch of salt

Mix together. Pour milk onto it, or kefir or yogurt. Mix and eat.

This is also good with sliced bananas or blueberries in it.

Chocolate Banana Milkshake

  • 2 ripe bananas, frozen and broken into chunks
  • 1.5 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
  • 2 T. raw sugar
  • 2 cups milk, kefir or yogurt.

Blend together in a blender until smooth. Add more milk if it is too thick for your taste. Add more banana if you want it thicker.

My children love this for a snack on a warm afternoon.
