    Nourishing Cocoa

    Rich, low carb, NOURISHING hot cocoa: combine 1T raw cocoa powder (Sunfoods makes some) with 1T powdered stevia and a little milk (I used frankenfood unsweetened almond milk) into a paste. Heat 1c grass fed cream to 108 degrees farenheit and combine with paste until smooth. Enjoy!
    If you really want to gild the lilly, add a chunk of raw cacao butter and mix until melted

    OH THIS SOUNDS AWESOME

    *hugs you ferociously*

    I can't do dairy, so coconut milk will HAVE TO DO.

    What's a WOMAN TO DO? OH NOES.

    The next time I have some carbs free, I'll try it with coconut milk. I bet it's great-- just like a mounds candy bar <3

    I entered this little beauty in a recipe contest last Christmas, but didn't see it posted.

    Umm... how MUCH stevia???

    "1T powdered stevia"... that simply cannot be correct, OR you need to provide a specific brand maybe, because all of the powdered stevia I'm familiar with the barest, scantest, fraction, of a tsp would make an entire cup of cocoa so sweet it would be plenty enough.
    That's why I switched to liquid stevia drops... the powdered stuff was INTENSE!

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    what does cocoa butter taste like? i can get it but it is very expensive so i've never risked it. i would be expecting it to be almost like white chocolate but not sweet and i wouldnt want to be disappointed.

    cacao butter is kinda bland, I think. It tastes very faintly of chocolate, and smells great. It's mellow. If you're looking for a chewy fat bomb to keep around the house, get some. A bag of the stuff lasts me at least 6 months, cuz I don't use it that often.
