Thanks for this recipe, it's gluten free too! Just recently diagnosed celiac so looking for new recipes. :-)
Hi Nicola, would you mind explaining to me why we shouldn't use cacoa? I have been using it because it's meant to have a lot more health benefits than cocoa. But I'll stop using it it's problematic for MS. Many thanks. Jenny

Raw cacao powder is 7% saturated fat as Kashu says

Cocoa powder is 0.8% saturated fat (7g per 86g serving)

Thank you for this info. Cocoa it is then!
I expect I'm being dozy but I can't see why 7g per 86g serving of cocoa powder isn't 8%, not 0.8% of saturated fat?

I've always worried about the saturated fat content in cocoa powder because of this ......
So hope I'm talking nonsense!
Whether cacao or cocoa, we shouldn't have too much of it.

From What Not to Eat in the Recovery Program
'Cocoa, however, is a natural vegetable product with only a little saturated fat, and the occasional teaspoon in a glass of soy milk for example, as hot chocolate, is fine.'
