A Blissful Recipe and Countdown to the Launch of the Online Course
Still on mood foods this week. I don’t know about you but it has been an up and down week for me. When feeling the blues one of the better foods to reach for is raw cacao. This recipe is essentially a smoothie but if you put less liquid in you can eat it as a mousse.
Raw cacao contains anandamide, which in very simplistic terms is a lipid (omega 6) that is known to be the bliss molecule that attaches to the cannabinoid receptors in the body and brings about feelings of relaxation and bliss.
Raw cacao also is an anti inflammatory, contains magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese. It is very much a stimulant so if you are not used to it you may want to reduce the amount you use in this recipe. I also would suggest not having this drink too late in the day.
Raw Cacao and Avocado Smoothie
1 ripe avocado
4 medjool dates or 8 dried dates
1 banana or 1 tbsp maple syrup (not both)
2 tbsp raw cacao
⅛ tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp cardamom
2 tbsp hemp seeds
1½ - 2 cups soy milk or coconut milk (use 2 cups if you want a smoothie or 1½ cups if you want a mousse)
Dried or fresh fruit for garnish
Sprig mint for garnish
Place everything in the blender and blitz until smooth. Place in a glass and decorate with dried or fresh fruit and a sprig of mint.
