Simply Raw Chocolate Recipe

The easiest chocolate is one part cocoa to one part coconut oil, but it can be taken further. If you are looking for a more solid and moldable chocolate then this recipe should fill your mouthly desires.

I would tell you about all the benefits of the raw goddess but I’m a bit queezy feeling today and I’m sure you can Google.

For me it’s just because it tastes like goddesses having a mating party on my tongue.

There is this method called tempering where you bring the chocolate to 150 degrees and it will stay more solid at room temperature, but this step is not necessary when it comes to taste. I have not personally tried tempering the chocolate due to having no reason to. At some point I’m sure I can bring it up to a little higher heat though and will report back.

Simply Raw Chocolate Ingredients

Chocolate Crumbles

1 Cup Cocoa Paste

1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder

1/2 Cup Coconut Oil

1 Teaspoon Coconut Sugar or Erythitrol (or more, my taste buds are off when it comes to sweetness)

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

Directions

  1. Take a double broiler, or a saucepan with water in it and a bowl on top, (you do not want the water to touch the bowl, even at a simmer as it will burn the chocolate).
  2. Bring the water to a simmer (do not let it boil) and let the cocoa paste melt. This can take about ten minutes so constantly watch and stir. Youtube and Instagram are acceptable distractions.
  3. Once the paste has melted stir in the sweetener and salt.
  4. Let the cocoa rest for about five minutes/until you can touch it without pain.
  5. Use your hands and mix the cocoa powder and coconut oil into the paste.
  6. Pour into silicone mold of some sort (I used a loaf pan).
  7. Either let the chocolate become solid in the fridge or let it sit out at room temperature until it becomes solid.

Chocolate and coffee is one of those magical mystery rides that you want to burst out singing for, and even let the taste get stuck in your head for years.

There are 200,000,000 Googly results if you ask it about the two together. That antioxidant burst of nutrients also works for the mind and even goes into my favorite field of study (since I’m going into it 😉 ) the neurosciences. It stimulates everyone’s favorite hormone: dopamine. The pleasure hormone as it is commonly slanged. “Chocolate may be used by some as a form of self-medication for dietary deficiencies (eg, magnesium) or to balance low levels of neurotransmitters involved in the regulation of mood, food intake, and compulsive behaviors (eg, serotonin and dopamine)” (Bruinsma 1999). This study was used to determine if chocolate is just a food or if it could be a drug. I so desperately love and crave chocolate to be inside me that it’s obvious why a study would jump the idea. Lady time is associated with the craves though, and since we lose so much iron and magnesium it could explain the correlation found between the two by Bruinsma.

Since I’m all iron and magnesium deficient chocolate is daily put in my mouth.

The taste never fades in its harmony and earthy depths, but at times…all the time, I experiment with what flavors can enhance its bounty of taste. Almond butter and coffee is already among my top mouth loves, so why not add coffee to chocolate? All three hasn’t been done yet but as soon as my macadamia nuts arrive a new recipe is coming to your mouths.

Lemon Pepper Spaghetti Squash Insides

Raw and Exposed

There’s something about this raw lady being inside you that causes mind shudders of pleasure.

One day/night (oh memory) I was hungry and still had to wait for the spaghetti squash to reach spaghettihood when I saw those innards stretched out across the cutting board. So exposed and wanting, nay, begging to be inside me.

I rubbed them in oil and built up their tension while searching for the perfect spices. The wait was too much and I went classic.  They had waited long enough and were immediately drenched in lemon juices and brought to completion with pepper and salt.

3 Way Cold Brew Coffee Tutorial

Coldly Brewed

Coldbrew is one of those things that sounds fancy and complicated and as though it will cost a fancy penny and a complicated work day.

In cold brew reality you can make incredible coffee flavors your mouth has never known with any container and something that can hold tiny coffee granules (cheesecloth, coffee filter, really fine laced leggings).

Why is Cold Brew so Superior?

  1. More Caffeine: Cold Brew has more caffeine inside it since you don’t burn out any of that delicious energy as you aren’t using hot water.
  2. Caffeine/Flavor Regulation: If you’re looking to detox on caffeine or even just regulate the amount this is the way to go. On days you need less coffee you just pour less into your bottle/liquid container. The amount is easily increased or decreased based on your mouth/body desires.
  3. The Flavor: Since you don’t burn out any of the flavor you get the depth and brightness that lies in your coffee beans. I’m tasting a beginning, middle and end of coffee notes with each moment of liquid that comes inside you.
  4. Cold Undiluted Coffee: At wretched coffee shops that need to be cast into the fires of Mount Doom they just add ice to regular brewed coffee. That is just flavored water…okay all liquid is but they do it wrong.

1 and 3/4 Cup of Finely Ground Coffee (or the size of breadcrumbs, but there’s a debate going for which grindis best)

A French press or Liquid Container

  2. Put the grinds into a container, preferably with a pour spout.
