Cacao….for chocolate addicts!

My new favourite treat for these cold days is to mix 1tsp of cacao powder into half a mug of almond or soy milk with 1/2-1tsp of Natvia. Zap in the microwave for 1 minute. Then add boiling water. Mmm delish!

This healthy treat is packed full of goodness. Cacao 10 times more antioxidants then green tea, wine and blueberries. It also helps to keep blood sugar levels balanced and is one of the richest sources of chromium and magnesium. 

Organic Road is the brand I prefer. It is certified organic, 100% Australian owned and has no added nasties. It’s available at Healthy Life health food shops.
