nothing wrong with cocoa powder, their hot chocolate will no doubt have dairy and be sweetended with sugar of course they will have more energy and then crash!

Oh yes yes yes, I will try this!

I do like dates rolled in Cocoa too. Aka energy balls.

Miss chocolate but at least we can have cocoa, I buy really expensive organic stuff as it lasts for ages and so worth it!

Just make sure the avocado is nice and ripe and that you blend everything very well - them it is light and delicious (with no lumpy surprises) ;)

Sounds good. But I read on my package of cocoa powder that it contains 7 grams of saturated fat. Is that a problem :?:
I just started the OMS-diet 2 days ago, so I still have a lot to learn...

Thanks for replying.

Yes that packet does not sound good.
If having Cocoa then have a tub of the pressed cocoa powder in the cupboad the sat fat ratio should be a lot less then the packet you might have. Hershey's do a cocoa powder that is very heavly pressed with little sat fat left in it.
