Chocolate:

Peanut butter:

Make chocolate first: Heat cacao butter in a small saucepan. Put cacao powder and xylitol in a blender and blend for 60 seconds. Then add melted cacao butter, salt, and vanilla to the powder mixture and blend until well combined. Pour into muffin tins. (12 regular size). Place in refrigerator to set.

To make peanut butter to add to chocolate: Heat coconut oil and honey in saucepan add peanut butter until all combined and heated. Then remove from heat and stir in vanilla and gelatin. Pour on top of set chocolate, it will melt some you can lightly tap the peanut butter to smooth out and push it slightly into the chocolate. Return to fridge to reset. Store in air tight container in fridge for 3-4 days

Alternatively you can split the chocolate in half and put the peanut butter in the middle as pictured above.

Also you can replace the peanut butter with the same amount of chopped fruit, just place in blender with the gelatin and blend until mushy lol, then add other heated ingredients. Shown is my Strawberry batch.

Kefir Smoothie (Probiotic, Antioxidant)

Kefir Smoothie

  • 1 cup fresh organic fruit
  • 1/2 organic kefir (I use pomegranate milk kefir)
  • 1/2 frozen organic berries
  • 1/4 cup frozen organic spinach (smoothie in picture has a little less because I ran out)
  • 1 T raw honey
  • 1 tsp diatomaceous earth, food grade
  • A pinch each of organic cinnamonturmeric and cayenne

Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  If you prefer a more frozen type smoothie, you can switch the amounts of frozen versus fresh with your fruits and berries. This smoothie has strawberries for the frozen berries and the fresh fruits are a combo of strawberries, blueberries, pineapple and watermelon.

Salsaguac

I now have a new favorite dip.  I call it Salsaguac (Salsa + Guacamole – amole….).  I am sure someone else already makes this and calls it something more sophisticated.  As usual, I use all organic ingredients for this recipe.

     Salsaguac

  • 4 ripe Avocados
  • 16 oz Cottage Cheese
  • 16 oz Salsa (I use ones like Organicville Salsa while I am working on perfecting my own)
  • 1/4 t Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 t Onion Powder
  • 1/4 t Turmeric
  • 1/4 t Chili Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Cut, Pit and Peel your avocados, then mash them as well as you can until fairly smooth.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Serve with tortilla or pita chips or whatever else you like.  Store in refrigerator.
