Raw Chocolate Bar

...My first "official" raw chocolate bar ever. I just finished it this morning while doing some studying, so, so good. I got it from Raw Guru, the ultimate online raw store.

A couple days ago I had this dreadful chocolate craving, what's a girl to do? Here's my quick fix, which I shall entitle the...

Crunchy Maca Chocolate

1 T. organic cocoa or raw cacao

1/2 T. maca powder

1/2 T. lucuma powder

2 T. almond bits (I just smashed some in a bag with something hard)

1-2 T. maple syrup or agave nectar (or honey)

Mix in a small container and shape into one deluctable ball of indulgence. Coat with lucuma powder or cacao nibs.

I'm afraid I've been craving sugars lately (not again! lol) so it's nice to have a little fix now and then, such as the dreamy Medjool date, Shannonmarie's Million-Dollar Brownies, and Carmella's whipped cream. :)

A couple days ago my Mom served our whole family Green Smoothies with our lunch, they were actually purple, but they had greens in them. I'm so proud of her. Oh, and Anne-Marie, my eldest sister has been having Green Smoothies in the mornings too. Our family loves to have smoothies and is always happy when someone is willing to share. We keep our Vita-Mix very busy. I really just adore my family! :)
