Last week while my appetite was recovering from a nasty case of food poisoning, I craved something sweet on the lips but light on tummy – and the hips.
There’s nothing better that’s naturally sweet like bananas to settle an upset digestive system. They’re easily digested and the high level of potassium can help replace electrolytes that may be lost by severe bouts of you know what. I apologize that this blog post haven’t exactly encouraged much of your appetite so far, but it’s about to take a turn of the better.
Imagine your fork slicing through hot, crispy & crumbly crust to find melted chocolate bubbling all over plenty of warm vanilla-coated bananas. And the fab thing is, the ‘chocolate pieces’ used here are in fact Cacao Chunks (a combination of Cacao Butter & Cacao Powder), i.e. my ultimate favorite SUPERFOOD of all time.
For those who don’t know, let me break it up for you…
Organic Raw Cacao Powder (not to confuse with commercial Cocoa powder) contains high levels of magnesium, B vitamins, antioxidants & Serotonin to keep you energized, healthy & happy. It’s also good for heart & brain function. It’s gluten free, vegan friendly, sugar-free & low in Glycemics Index.
Organic Raw Cacao Butter is the edible natural fat of the chocolate bean, cold pressed to retain its nutritional properties and exquisite natural aroma. It consists of healthy fats including essential omega fatty acids required by the body for skin and hair quality, hormonal regulation and fertility. It’s also gluten free, vegan friendly, sugar free and low in Glycemics Index.
For those in the UAE looking for Cacao Chunks, head right to Be Super Natural store located inside Dubai Mall’s Galeries Lafayette Gourmet department. Its UAE’s only brand of raw organic superfoods with big hearted ethics and definitely my favorite! If you can’t find Cacao Chunks in your area (or maybe called something else such as Cacao Paste by other brands), see NOTES in the recipe below.
