Nuts About Chocolate

Published January 11, 2012 by Polana Fowdrey

Remember that chocolate nut spread we had as kids? I expect they still make it, but here’s my healthy raw chocolate version:

Chocolate Nut Spread

Equipment: Blender

Ingredients

1 cup almond pulp (from making nut milk)

2 dessertspoons raw cacao powder

3-4 dessertspoons agave, maple or stevia syrup or 1 banana

1cm vanilla pod, very finely chopped, or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch sea salt

Water to blend (about 1/2 – 1 cup)

Method

Mix everything thoroughly in a blender. If you use a high speed blender, your mixture will be very smooth and creamy; if you use a regular blender, your mixture will be more grainy. It will still taste good!)

This is great as a chocolate spread – on breads, crackers, other people… oh sorry, I got carried away there!

Just enjoy all the chocolaty goodness, eh?
