A Little Bit About Us

Our goal is to make affordable, delicious, healthy food that nourishes our souls as well as our bodies. We love new flavors as well as old favorites. It's important, for us, not to place too many restrictions and be as free and simple as we can when it comes to our food. We have no fancy equipment or expensive gadgets (although when we're wrestling with our dinosaur blender/smoothie maker we have both thought how nice it'd be to have a functioning one.. lol). We love each other more than anything and making food together is rewarding on every level.

Quick and Easy Raw Vegan Chocolate with Sea Salt and Cinnamon

My sister and I love to get creative…especially when it comes to chocolate! This is the best chocolate I’ve ever tasted. Hands down! Plus, it is made from all natural ingredients–it is loaded with antioxidants and Love :) I like using only organic when possible. It is simple to make, only taking a few minutes!!
Ingredients:
1 cup of raw cacao powder  (you can also use cocoa!)
6-7 tablespoons of coconut oil
3 tablespoons of liquid sweetener (maple syrup, agave nectar, or honey*)
cinnamon to taste
sea salt to taste
Mix the raw cacao, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon and sea salt together. Putting in enough sea salt is the trick. Play around with the chocolate until it is creamy, but not too runny. If it is to fluffy/powdery then you need to add more oil. I put it in the freezer and then after it sets I keep it in the fridge. Let me know if you try it. I would love to hear what you think!
I like using organic ingredients because they are healthier for our bodies and the planet. If you can’t afford them, just do the best you can and it will still taste great and be good for you!!In the picture we added fresh berries and coconut whipped cream 


*some people agree that honey is vegan while others say it is not
