Known as the "Food of the Gods” by ancient South American cultures, raw cacao is cherished now in modern times as a healthy and delicious form of dark chocolate. Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs are made from whole raw cacao beans crumbled into small ‘nib’ chunks. “Nature’s chocolate chips” have a pure dark chocolate flavor, and they’re a healthy source of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. Enjoy them in recipes just as you would conventional chocolate chips or snack on them straight out of the bag.
Raw cacao contains a naturally rich supply of antioxidants including flavonoids and polyphenols, and it’s an excellent source of dietary fiber. Cacao is also known to be one of the highest dietary sources of magnesium and it possesses many other essential minerals in significant quantities including iron. Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs also contain 4 grams of protein per serving.
Navitas Naturals cacao is sustainably harvested in the lush forests of Peru, where our partners carefully select the best cacao beans from local small-scale organic cacao farmers. Our cacao beans are delicately removed from the pulp of the pod-like fruit, are rinsed with purified water and partially fermented. The whole beans are peeled and gently crumbled to form small “nibs.” All processing of the cacao is at low temperatures to protect the flavor and nutrients. Product of Peru, packed in the USA.
The mission of Navitas Naturals is to provide the finest organic superfoods that increase energy and enhance health. Our products are certified organic, kosher, gluten-free, non-GMO, and raw. Harvested from around the world, Navitas Naturals superfoods are a diverse whole-food source of antioxidants, protein, essential fatty acids, minerals, vitamins, and other key nutrients. We use methods such as freeze-drying and low temperature processing to ensure maximum nutrition and flavor.
Navitas Naturals Cacao Nibs are an incredibly versatile and convenient superfood. You can use them in a wide variety of recipes just as you would chocolate chips in baked goods, desserts and raw treats. Grab a handful of nibs for a delicious and nutritious snack, or sprinkle them onto cereal, trail mix, yogurt or ice cream.
Blend all ingredients except for the cacao nibs and ice until smooth. Add the nibs and ice and blend again until frosty. Cacao is both a stimulant and a nourishing food. Although it contains a small amount of caffeine and other stimulants including theobromine, it provides energy mostly via its potent antioxidants and nutrients that promote blood circulation and oxygenation. This recipe by chef Julie Morris yields 2 servings.
