Exactly as it sounds. This mocha is rich and creamy and delicious. I love mocha’s. I am not a regular coffee drinker, I definitely enjoy a cup every now and then and if I’m wanting a special treat, I have a mocha. But on a daily basis, I am a tea girl. Black, herbal, dried leaves, fresh herbs, flowery or bitter. I don’t discriminate tea. And while I drink so much of it, it never occurred to me to make a mocha with it. Until now. And I am so happy I did!! This is taking my tea drinking experience to a whole new level!
I am sharing with you here one of my first mixtures, but I am sure I will be playing around a bit with this concoction over the weeks and if something even tastier arises, I will be sure to share it with you. But for now, this is rocking my morning boat 🙂
- 1 cup steeped and strained black tea of choice
- 1 TBS raw cacao powder (regular cocoa powder will work but you are missing out on the amazing benefits of raw cacao!)
- 1 TBS coconut cream (This is what adds the richness, if you don’t have cream, try it with coconut oil and a little bit of your milk of choice)
- 1 date (or sweetener of choice, again though, i feel like the date here adds to the richness)
- 1/2 tsp Everlasting Vitality and Youth powder by Edible Goddess (optional, but I love me some superfood drinks!)
- put all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until you get some foam going
- pour in a cup and enjoy warm!
Need I say more? Fudgey, chocolatey goodness. Yet again. These little disks are rich and creamy and make me so happy.
Being a chocoholic is slightly dangerous. I never run out of ideas on things to create, and I have a much too willing husband to motivate me in creating more. He loves chocolate almost as much as I do. I say almost because if he craves chocolate and there isn’t any around, he forgets about it. If I crave chocolate and there isn’t any around, well I make it.
I used mini muffin tins here, because, why not? But you could use anything you have on hand. I recently made a batch of chocolate in my ice cube trays. You do not need fancy little chocolate molds, although they are cute looking.
- 3/4 cup shaved raw cacao butter (I used a sharp knife and thinly shaved the cacao)
- 1/2 cup raw coconut butter
- 1/2 cup hazelnut butter
- 1 cup raw cacao powder
- 1/3 cup raw agave
- 1/2 tsp vanilla powder (optional)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup dried fruit (I mixed goji berries, mulberries and dates)
- in a double boiler (Or a glass bowl over some steaming water) melt the cacao butter
- once melted turn off the heat and add the coconut butter and mix until melted and creamy looking
- transfer everything but the fruit to your blender and blend until well combined
- pour in a bowl and fold in the dried fruit
- lightly grease your mold with coconut oil
- pour mixture into your molds and put in the fridge to set at least 30 minutes or freezer to speed up the process
- store in the fridge.
- I have no idea how long they will last, i’ve never been able to let one sit long enough to find out….
