Raw Coconut Chocolate
Blue Coconut Nuilife Coconut Butter

This Raw Coconut Chocolate is such an easy recipe and perfect for when those sweet cravings hit! Not only is it super tasty, it is packed full of nutrients.

The main ingredients in this raw chocolate is coconut butter!

Coconut butter is simply coconut flesh that has been blended into butter (think similar to peanut or almond butter). If you have never tasted coconut butter before, you have got to get your hands on some. It is deeeeelicious! The taste and texture reminds me a lot of white chocolate and it is so versatile when it comes to using it in baking an cooking. It’s an awesome base ingredients to use in raw chocolate (like the recipe below), but my fave way that I have been using it lately is to make coconut milk. You simply blend 1 Tbsp with a cup of water and the result it a super creamy and delicious milky drink that you can use in curries, smoothies and any other way you would usually use milk.

The brand I having been using is Niulife and you can buy it here.

Use this recipe is a base then add your favourite chocolate ingredients such as:

  • Roasted nuts and seeds

  • Puffed buckwheat, quinoa or rice.

  • Dried fruit such as sultanas, goji berries or cranberries.

  • Organic popcorn.
