CHAGA CACAO BITES



Contributor: Sofiia Manousha
From the most sensual and beautiful city in the world, Sofia Manousha sends us this recipe for Raw Cacao Beautyfuel Bites from Paris. One bite is all you need to have a multi-sensory experience of bliss!

For those who don’t know me, I am absolutely passionate about a few things:  Pilates, Yoga, Art, Matcha and most importantly, CACAO! I do not spend a day without consuming raw cacao in some form: in my smoothies, lattes, and honestly, however else I can get a little dose in!

I’ve created this recipe because I wanted to be able to enjoy the feeling of eating an absolutely decadent dessert that is guilt-free and especially rich in nutrients. This recipe is also perfect for a pre-workout, post-work-out, a snack, a dessert, really everything! I also like to call it BEAUTYFUEL because it’s a blend of ingredients that nourish the skin from the inside out.

Here’s how the ingredients work...

Raw Cacao
Raw cacao is one of the richest foods in antioxidants, magnesium, iron, polyphenols and sulfur. It helps to regenerate collagen and keratin, to increase the brightness of skin, nails and hair.
 

Sun Potion's Chaga is a powerful adaptogen, rich source of B vitamins, promotes overall well-being, and is a source of strong energy. 

Cocoa Butter
Cacao butter is rich in stearic, palmitic and oleic acids which gives it an intense moisturizing action. It may help to slow down the aging process of our skin by neutralizing free radicals as well as stimulating collagen production. With its ultra-nourishing effects, cocoa butter also may help slow down the production of wrinkles.
 
Himalayan Sea Salt

Himalayan sea salt is rich in healing minerals and balances the taste of raw cacao.

Medjool Dates

Medjool dates to replace any source of refined sugar, also for their high fiber and protein content.

Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is a high source of protein content, and also it is life!

Chia Seeds

Rich in antioxidants, proteins and omega 3 which help support hydration and cell regeneration. Their richness in fiber promotes weight loss.

Sun Potion's Pearl is a source of minerals including calcium, zinc, iron, selenium and amino acids. Pearl powder is rich in antioxidants and helps support the body's natural collagen production. The BEST superfood « Pure Beauty » from the inside out.

Chaga Cacao Bites

Ingredients

1/2 cup cocoa butter

1 tbsp. raw cacao powder

1 tsp. Chaga

1 pinch Himalayan salt

4 Medjool dates (soaked for 1-2 hours)

1 tbsp. raw peanut butter

1 tbsp. coconut oil

1 tsp. Pearl

1 tbsp. plant milk

1 tsp. chia seeds

1/2 cup raspberries

2-5 tsp. hot water

 

 Method

Soak your dates in water for 1-2 hours to make them soft and tender.

Make raspberry 'jam' by mixing your raspberries and chia seeds with a few teaspoons of hot water, mix and let stand for 10 minutes.

Melt the cocoa butter, and when it becomes liquid, mix it with the cacao powder, Himalayan sea salt, Chaga powder, coconut oil and Pearl.

Pour half of the mixture into molds (silicone muffin molds will work) and place in freezer for 15 minutes.

While that sets, use a blender to mix the pitted dates and peanut butter until it turns creamy in texture, then add in milk of choice and blend again.

Remove tray from freezer and add a dollop of peanut butter mix into each mold.

Put a spoonful of chia raspberry jam on top of peanut butter.

Pour remaining chocolate mix on top making sure raspberries are well covered.

Place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.

The Beautyfuel Keto Chaga Bites will have hardened and will be ready to be savored with a delicious cup of Matcha.

For a less creamy version, replace some of the coconut oil with more cocoa butter.

Store for 10-15 days in freezer and up to 1 week in your fridge.


An absolute dream!

    Well, this obviously is not the entire recipe, no one has answered the, “what are the red berries” question and I’d like to know what the white center is. If you are going to offer a recipe, let’s have it.

Actress and founder of the Holistic Beauty Website My BeautyFuel food

Since I was a child, I always got the feeling that food played a major part in our skin, health, and level of energy.   

My BeautyFuel Food was born from my love for the plant-based diet, superfoods, and the desire to democratize it. I wanted it to be delicate, sexy, easy and generous! Healthy diets do not imply starvation and dieting by only eating seeds and drinking green juices. It is a way to be fully aware of what you are giving to your body: vibrant and unprocessed food. I aspire to, as I said before, give a new vision of the plant-based diet. I want it to be simple, easy and accessible. I am really not into diets or food restrictions, it’s actually quite the opposite. I believe in intuitive, generous, tasty and vibrant food. Beauty is a combination of different factors: skincare, lifestyle and food. 

Love Sofiia Manousha
