So we must celebrate with lots of chocolate! But instead of just eating it you can eat a little and use some to pamper yourself; all the indulgence without the guilt! You can look great, feel better, and not put on an ounce of weight!

 

Eating

Turmerlicious Hot Chocolate Drinks

Turmerlicious

CHOC Chick Organic Raw Cacao Powder

powder-100g-27295-2-510x638

Exceptional in its taste and quality, CHOC Chick’s single origin organic raw cacao powder comes from the Nacional Arriba Fino de Aroma cocoa bean.

This powder is made by grinding raw cacao beans, then separating the solids from the oils (cacao butter) before grinding the solids again into this raw powder. All done at a low temperature which keeps the cacao powder raw and packed full of antioxidants and essential fatty acids.

The pack is really handy and re-sealable and it’s so versatile, I use it in smoothies, sprinkled onto yoghurt, in hot chocolate and added to raw cacao butter for making my own delicious raw chocolates. It’s also a surprisingly great addition to stews and chillies.

Organic Chocolate Face Mask

Clean Beauty

  • 2 tbs raw organic cocao powder
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 tbs live yoghurt
  • 3 tbs fine oatmeal

Blend together the ingredients, apply and leave on for 20 minutes. If you prefer the mask to be moisturising but not exfoliating, leave out the oatmeal. You could even increase quantities and add coconut oil for a full-body wrap.
