So let me tell you about this book. I loved it. I can't wait to get my order of raw cacao powder and nibs so I can try some of these recipes. I am thinking I will be trying some with raw carob powder- just to get me by until my order gets here.
The book has 5 chapters. The first chapter is titled Raw Basics. It covers as it says the basics but also a list of equipment needed (or enjoyed as a raw foodie), ingredient descriptions, basic recipes for nut/seed milks and raw condiments. My favorite part of this chapter is her tips. I learned a lot. My favorite tip is for doubling recipes. I double, sometimes quadruple a recipe for my large family so this was good info.
The second chapter covers Raw Chocolate. You get a brief history of chocolate and learn why it is good for you. She also covers the different raw chocolate products available and other special ingredients. Chapter three covers chocolate drinks. I can't wait to try the Creamy chocolate vanilla milk , and the Chocolate holiday spice nog.
In chapter four she covers snacks, soup, salad dressing, crackers and breakfasts. A lot of great recipes to choose from. Several popped off the page at me: Chocolate powered oatmeal, Power packed trail mix, Chocolate chia crackers, Mesquite spiced chocolate brazil nut crumble and Chia chocolate pudding snack to name a few..
In the final chapter she covers desserts. Yum! How about Goddess cream cake , Chocolate pumpkin pie, Pure rush chocolate and Fun chocolate banana plant leather. It is hard to choose just one recipe that I can't wait to try.
I learned a lot about raw chocolate. Like how it is loaded with antioxidants. I also learned that pure chocolate has heart health benefits.Read more ›
There are many recipe books that feature raw chocolate as a dessert or smoothie ingredient, and there are a number of delicious dessert and beverage recipes in this book as well. However, Kristen takes chocolate to another level with wonderful recipes for chocolate crackers, soup, and salad dressing...all raw, all vegan, all healthy.
In the southwest, chocolate is a part of the culture. The chocolate consumed here is not milk chocolate, or chocolate-covered marshmallows, but dark, rich, almost bitter chocolate...often combined with cinnamon and chiles. I was delighted to find that Kristen includes recipes with just those ingredients...the best way to enjoy chocolate, in my opinion.
I can't wait to see what Kristen comes up with next.
