Every person that knows me has a good idea about my love for chocolate. This love started as a young age with my grandma, who used to make us a big cup of super dark hot chocolate for breakfast every day.
As an adult I learned that this magnificent drink was not only delicious but very healthy. Cacao is packed with minerals specially magnesium and anti-oxidants, it easily deserves the right to be a superfood.
The right way to consume chocolate to benefit from all its health properties is when it's raw, that's the main reason Enjoyful Foods created it's first chocolate product, "Cacao Drink" to offer a delicious healthy, simple and powerful drink, made with high quality fair trade, raw and GMO free cacao from Dominican Republic.
Now let's talk about this drink, I made it this morning for breakfast and couldn't keep it for myself, I needed to share it with you. This drink is packed with superfoods, protein and healthy fats to make it a complete meal. It's Vegan, Paleo and Ketogenic. This delicious drink is free of gluten, starches, grains, soy, nuts and processed sugar. You don't have to use the ingredients I used in this recipe, be creative and use what you have on hand. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
