Made from our renowned Arriba Nacional Fino de Aroma Ecuadorian beans, this raw and organic cacao paste is prepared by grinding cacao nibs below 120° to yield a rich paste that is then cooled and dried, forming chocolaty chunks. The solid, cocoa bits are perfect for creating a variety of raw chocolate treats. This form of cacao can be easily blended into chocolate candies, smoothies and desserts while still giving you all the healthy benefits of the powerful superfood known as the Food of the Gods. Raw Cacao is one of nature's most fantastic superfoods due to its high mineral content and wealth of antioxidants. Since many of the special properties of cacao are destroyed or lost by cooking, refining, and processing, planet Earth's favorite food is still unknown to most of us. Now we get to reconnect with the power of real, raw chocolate!
Raw Cacao offers fantastic hope for chocoholics everywhere. You can turn cravings for cooked, processed, chocolate into the super-nutrition of the highest order. Cacao Paste can easily be blended into smoothies, sprinkled over raw ice cream or combined with your favorite raw food desserts. Enjoy this cacao paste as is or discover your own mouthwatering combinations. An easy way to use cacao paste is to melt it at a low temperature and use the tantalizing liquid paste in your creations. Use cacao paste to make our own raw chocolates: Melt equal amounts of cacao paste and cacao butter, add a raw sweetener, vanilla powder, and a dash of Sea Salt. Put in a mold (or ice cube tray) and place in freezer to set.
