(NaturalNews) This raw chocolate and goji berry cake is not only incredibly delicious, but it is power packed with nutrient dense superfoods. Goji berries are the highest source of vitamin C, a sexual tonic, and one of the best cancer fighting super foods. Just ask the Tibetans.
Raw chocolate is one of the best sources of magnesium, which is the number one most common deficiency in the Western world. It also contains unique chemicals that make us feel high (hence the rocket fuel).
Lucuma is a power packed Lúcuma fibre with vitamins and minerals. It has lots of beta-carotene, niacin (B3) and iron. It is also considered the Gold of the Incas, and I can attest that once your friends taste this cake, it will be a gold rush to your place.
Agave Nectar is a healthy sweetener that won't raise your blood sugar levels.Recipe for Super Food Chocolate Cake
* 150g coconut oil/butter
* 150g raw chocolate powder.
* 100g goji berries
* 100g of lucuma.
* 3 teaspoons agave nectar.
Boil some water and take it off the stove. Put the coconut oil/butter in another dish, and put it in the boiling water (A Bain Marie).
Soak the goji berries for 20 minutes, and then add them into the mixture when the coconut oil is melted.
Add the rest of the ingredients and blend the mixture up. Put it in a dish or small pie plate and smash it down. Then refrigerate it for a couple of hours (chances are you won't make it that long... but do try).
And presto, you have a cake
that is so amazingly gorgeous you won't believe that it is healthy and good for you. We are taught from a young age that all of the yummy foods are bad for us and all of the nutritious foods taste horrendous.
Now, with raw cakes, we know that you can have your cake and eat it too.
Anyone who tries this cake, even the most sweet tooth junk lovers, will be amazed that it is incredibly healthy. It truly goes to show that you do not need a load of rubbish to eat gorgeous sweet desserts. There is a whole world out there of delicious treats that transform our bodies and minds.
You can actually add a few sunflower seeds or hemp seeds. This will break up the rich sweetness and add even more potent superfood power... play around and find out what works best for you.
