Nut-Free Raw Cacao Balls Ingredients

2 Cups Shredded coconut
1.5 Cups Cacao Powder
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup Raw Honey
1/2 Cup Currants
Optional: Vanilla Extract,
 Cinnamon, Peppermint Oil

Raw Cacao Balls satisfy our Primal sweet tooth!

Notes

– All ingredients organic where possible.

– You can also use cocoa butter, but it’s certainly more expensive and harder to find than coconut oil.

– To sweeten , I like to use raw unpasteurised bush honey. We buy it from our local farmers market . You can also use organic raw sugar like Panela (Rapadura), a very raw and unprocessed sugar. You can also use something like Stevia which is a herb from South America. It is an all natural sweetner as well.

– You can also add lots of different ingredients to suit your own taste. I like to use currants, as a little bit of dried fruit  gives a nice sweet taste to it.

Nut-Free Raw Cacao Balls Recipe

Step 1: Add two cups of shredded coconut to a mixing bowl.

Step 2: Add one and a half cups of cacao powder.

Step 3: Add half a cup of raw honey. The honey should slide out of the cup easier when the cacao powder has been in there prior.

Step 4: Add half a cup of coconut oil. When the oil is solid at room temperature, you can heat / melt the coconut to make it easier to add to the mixture.

Step 5: Add half a cup of currants and any extra ingredients you desire.

Step 6: Mix! Mix! Mix! Use a spatula or get in there with your hands.

Step 7: Start tasting it. Add ingredients to change taste to your liking.

Step 8: Roll the mixture into balls. Place shredded coconut onto a plate and roll the balls onto the coconut.

Step 9: Place in fridge for at least 30 minutes to solidify.

Step 10: The Cacao Balls are ready. Eat them!!

How Milk Became So Dangerous

The conflicting information is driving us all mad!! On the one hand we hear: Milk Does a Body Good!. It’s essential for calcium requirements, Vitamin D, strong bones and healthy children. On the other hand we hear: Milk causes mucus. It leads to lactose intolerance and ear infections. It’s too fatty. It contains Bovine Growth Hormone. Our societal response to this confusion is low-fat milk, skim milk, no-fat milk, soy milk, rice milk, almond milk, oat milk, organic milk, BGH-free milk, no milk. Just more confusion. So what’s gone wrong and where do we go from here?

Here’s what we found when we lived in and visited Japan and analysed their diet and lifestyle…
