Frosty Fruity - Raw Chocolate

I love to talk about raw chocolate! Check out my video and recipe below.

p.s If you would like to make this recipe for Frosty Fruity when you're going to have an actual frosty Xmas day, you can always swap the frozen fruits for some stewed fruit or dried fruits and perhaps some spices such as cinnamon, cayenne and nutmeg to make a more warming kind of chocolate treat.

Abi's 'Model Chocolate' Eco Block

We models need chocolate right? It can get us from one casting to another, one shoot to another while still keeping us feeling light & energetic ...

Actually raw cacao chocolate is a wonderful superfood for any one of us who wants to look & feel our very best, as well as have the energy to meet our superhuman lifestyles!

Today I'm going to give to you one of the 60+ recipes from MODEL CHOCOLATE - my supergorgeous raw chocolate recipe book, due out later this year.

This recipe is cheap, simple to make, & tastes delicious! It's raw energy food you can make in 10 minutes to have on hand all week (if it lasts that long!).

Creamed coconut is available from good health food stores or supermarkets, you can get it in a jar - such as the beautiful Artisana brand - which is more expensive, or in a blocks such as Royals which make this recipe super cheap! Find the blocks at Asian supermarkets or again, from the health food store.

 

Abi's Model Chocolate Eco Block

200g creamed coconut

2 big tablespoons raw honey or more

1 tablespoon cold pressed rice bran or coconut oil

1 teaspoon vanilla powder

1 big tablespoon nut butter, optional (makes a slightly softer creamier chocolate)

½ cup chopped raw brazil nuts

½ cup mixed sultanas, currants & raisins

Pinch fine sea salt

1/3 cup organic raw cacao powder

Line a flat tray with foil or non stick baking paper. Place creamed coconut into a glass bowl to melt over a larger bowl of boiled water. Remove from heat & mix in all other ingredients until combined. Using a spatula scrape out onto lined tray or mould & set in the fridge.

SuperTips: Try any fruits, nuts or spices or essential oils to alter the flavour of your chocolate. OR top with a some melted creamed coconut mixed with a little coconut oil, honey & vanilla for a no-fuss no dairy ‘white chocolate’ topping!

10 minutes to prepare. 10 minutes to set. Makes a massive block to feed a family.


Stay tuned to for all the superfood chocolate you can eat! <3

CACAO VANILLA HALVA

SOOO CRAZY BUSY working on all the planning for fashion/beauty/chocolate shoots for my up & coming book MODEL CHOCOLATE & I can't share the real ripper recipes, but here's a little idea for you to get more cacao into your day as well as more calcium.

SESAME halva has long been hailed a beauty food in many European wellness clinics & for good reason! Lots of good fats, vitamins & minerals & so delicious & easy to make.

In my book I like to make it a little less traditional by topping it all up with the extra antioxidants & chocolatey goodness of raw cacao.

To make halva, simply whiz raw sesame seeds in a coffee grinder or blender, placing into a bowl, add a little pure vanilla & raw honey to bind it into a sticky mass, not too much or it will be too sweet. Then simply halve the mixture & add raw cacao powder & a little maple syrup to one part. Layer the vanilla into a sealable glass dish & top it with the raw chocolate halva. DONE! An easy snack you can share with a friend & a pot of tea, or a satisfying raw dessert after a yummy green salad. I love it & it works wonders on my skin!

RAW CHOCOLATE LOVE

Hi loves! Hope you're having a wonderful day :)

I'm so very busy right now working on my first cookbook ~ MODEL CHOCOLATE ~ which is getting closer by the moment! My chocolate brings you more energy, love & beauty with every supergorgeous bite! There are over 50 (more like 60) recipes in it ranging from breakfasts to desserts & even a couple of beauty treatments using raw cacao. In just over a month we'll be shooting the cover & I'll share sneak peaks here via Organic Your Life! Stay tuned...

For now though, I want to share with you a few raw chocolate tips you can do oh-so-easily which will enhance your:

Life  - this oldest living lady a chocoholic? woo!

Beauty - antioxidants second to none on the face of the earth

Love - watch this awesome inspiring  informative video by lord Cacao Wolfe

Health - extra raw cacao nutrition info

Happiness - anything that tastes this good & this good (bravo Val) & is every bit as good for you as it tastes makes you happy inside!! With those two recipes alone you can throw a little chocolate party! MMMMM.

Stock up on goodies:

Raw cacao powder, raw cacao nibs, raw cacao beans, creamed coconut, coconut oil, organic essential oils like peppermint, orange, lavender. Spices like cayenne & cinnamon, dried fruits such as blueberries, mango, incaberries. Organic fresh & frozen fruits & superfruits! Sweeteners such as raw honey, raw agave, maple syrup, coconut sugar. Organic nuts & seeds. Superpowders such as mesquite, lucuma, maqui berry, hemp protien, acai berry, maca. SOO GOOD.

Now you can do anything...!

Try:

Adding raw cacao, coconut oil, shavings of creamed coconut, cacao nibs, spices to nuts & seeds or organic fruits in your day. You can make simple fresh fruits exciting by adding yogurt & raw cacao nibs on top. You could add a sprinkling of raw cacao powder over a bowl of oatmeal before drizzling on honey & cinnamon. Rolling medjool dates in superpowders, mentioned above, & fill with raw cacao nibs or powder mixed with hazelnut butter. Snacking on cacao beans & goji berries is a favourite of many healthy people worldwide & for good reasons :)

Replace hot chocolate drinks with raw cacao hot chocolate. Don't scald it, place almond milk over raw cacao powder first, froth it with spices if you like & sweetener - then pour over the boiling water.

You can add cacao nibs or raw cacao powder into smoothies. I have a supersmoothie recipe in my book which is pretty much just young green coconut water with blueberries, cacao & any choice of superpowders/foods you like! It can taste scrumptious or earthy & medicinal depending on your combinations or needs on the day. A smoothie a day to keep the doctor away!

There's many great recipes available on the internet using raw cacao so have a play. Its worth the effort in all its blessedness... BUT if you are superbusy & want to buy chocolate instead PLEASE PLEASE choose only to buy fairtrade (refuse to support child slavery) for the rest of your life. I'd rather never taste chocolate again than buy chocolate that ruins a childs life. Remember too, buy chocolate that is what I call 'fairtrade by birth'. This means the company has always been fairtrade, rather than just slapping on a logo to keep up with the changing trends.

LOVE & CHOCOLATE

Tisano (Cacao) Tea

SOO HAPPY right now :) soo amazed & elated at life, good people in this world & CACAO TEA. Well it doesn't take much to make a girl happy does it??? Just a little chocolate here or there, a flower or two (cacao flowers even better!). If you've read any of my posts, checked out my facebook page or twitter, you'd know that I'm pretty madly passionate about FOOD. Even more so, presently, about  CHOCOLATE! Not just any old chocolate will do though, I'm very specific. Fussy in fact! It must be organic for a start, fairtrade is also absolutely essential; as I won't indulge my chocolate fancies upon produce that directly causes children or families harm. Another thing, I ADORE raw chocolate. Raw chocolate is my current obsession. It's made from the purest form of 'chocolate', called CACAO. Packed with up to 360% more antioxidants times than regular cocoa (not to mention other nutrients) & containing less caffeine & with it's rich (yet mild at times, depending) chocolate flavour, it's superfood & what I consider to be the finest indulgence at the same time! Imagine my surprise & utmost delight when I received a parcel direct from NY this afternoon & opened it to find a new cacao product! I'm soo happy with it I will always keep it on my tea shelves from this day on (lol, read the tweets, I couldn't stop raving & taking phone pics)... & to think, that this special, unique chocolate product is made entirely from the raw cacao HUSKS. Well done Tisano Tea, on a beautiful product, & thank-you from the bottom of my heart, ever gorgeous Valentina! LOVE & CHOCOLATE XXX ABIGAIL
