I have had a new discovery. My new concoction. I get a tablespoon of honey and half a teaspoon of cocoa powder ( it must be pure none of that drinking chocolate pish) and mix it together. Pop it in the microwave for ten seconds. Mix the honey and cocoa together really well. I then get a banana, chop it up and pour the honey and cocoa over the banana. Good Lord it is a-maz-ing. I personally wouldn't have it that often. It's not because it's not legal it's just that I value my teeth!

Ha! alright - also try this - I teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon tahini, I tsp coacoa :D
I can definitely recommend maple syrup and cocoa mixed together and eaten with fresh pears. My mouth is watering at the thought.

Thank goodness for you all!

Sometimes I just want a quick chocolate treat. Great suggestions!
Amazing... dried cherries with maple syrup chocolate sauce so yummy. Thank you for the post and idea
I make the walnut, date and cacao bliss balls and keep in the freezer as a treat with my cuppa, but I have discovered that Lindt brand chocolate has no dairy in it if it's 70% or more cocoa. It has to be the plain dark chocolate which I love anyway. I know the saturated fat is a bit high, but just watch what else you eat that day. It's nice melted and strawberries dipped in it. Yummy :D
Hi there,
personally I would stare away completely from cacao because of the extremely high saturated fat content.

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

Raw cacao powder is 7% saturated fat

And I would do the same with any chocolate bars, Lindt or any other brand.
Professor Jelinek does not permit the consumption of "chocolate bars" in any quantity.
Don't worry, there's plenty of other treats to make with cocoa. Check out this recipe for a dipping sauce for strawberries!!

Hi

Thanks Phil! I ordered cocoa powder to come with my next veg box delivery right away and just tried the honey mix last night! Ooooooh! Now I have never had a sweet tooth but think I have created a new addiction. Your fault.

Thanks Rose! Think I might give it a go tomorrow. I only need to start liking dates now... (the fruit I mean)

Here is another one from dr. Greger's website (http://nutritionfacts.org):

blend 1 cup frozen strawberries or other berries and about 1 teaspoon cocoa powder (adjust the quantities to your taste) in a blender or with a hand-held stick for an ice cream-like treat. Add a banana and/or a splash of almond milk for another variation.
hi Rose, I just checked my cocoa and my cacao packets, and the only difference is the carbohydrate content is a lot higher in the cacao. Total carb 50g per 100g (sugars 1g). In the cocoa its 15.6g per 100g. (sugars 1.6g). Is that bad?
