Cacao Gold Butter Chunks by Power Super Foods

Cacao Butter is the edible natural fat of the chocolate bean, cold pressed to retain its nutritional properties and exquisite natural aroma and flavour. It's traditionally been used as a rich natural moisturiser; as a sexy and decadent massage oil; for soothing babies sore bums; in organic- based cosmetics like lipstick and balm, and in luxury soapmaking. 

Nutritional Benefits

Cacao Butter is a good source of Vitamin E (beta- and gamma- tocopherols) and has a unique composition including the essential fatty acids Omega-6 and monounsaturated Omega-9 (oleic acid, like olive oil) as well as stearic acid - an unusual fat in that it neither increases nor decreases blood cholesterol. 

Suggested Uses

Raw Foodists love it !! Use instead of butter on toast etc, or warm gently until soft (melting point approx 35C / 95 F), then add as desired to raw foodist concoctions like blissballs or ice cream, chocolate creations, smoothies or desserts - or smear on skin and lips for the ultimate moisturiser. 

Recipes

REALLY RAW CHOCOLATES 

Ingredients:

150g Raw Cacao Powder

300g Raw Cacao Butter

100g Liquid Sweetener eg. agave, honey, etc

Pinch of healthy salt

OPTIONAL: Goji berries, Maqui powder, Acai Powder, Goldenberries, orange zest, vanilla bean, grated ginger, shredded coconut or crushed nuts. 

Preparation:

First melt the cacao butter in a ‘bain marie’ (a steel bowl over a large pot of just boiled water). Into a strong blender, add the 4 ingredients together, then scrape out blender into a bowl, and add any optional ingredients you wish. Spoon into chocolate moulds or funny shaped ice cube trays, refrigerate for a half hour, and pop out onto plate.
