HEALTH BENEFITS: Heart-healthy!
Certified organic, vegan, wheat-free, and gluten-free, cocoa powder is an excellent source of fiber, protein, iron, and vitamin C! Natural cocoa also helps lower cholesterol levels to keep your heart healthy. Cocoa also contains flavonoids; a powerful group of antioxidants knows as polyphenols, which help prevent high blood pressure, heart disease, and blood clots.
CULINARY TWIST: More than dessert!
Classically, cocoa powder can be used in baked goods to add that chocolaty bite to cookies, cakes, brownie’s, granola bars, etc. For a spin on something sweet, try pairing your favorite rice pudding recipe with cocoa powder and chia seeds for a healthy, antioxidant-rich snack or dessert (top with berries or other fruits as well)! For a savory spin, try adding a tablespoon of cocoa powder to a classic rib, chicken, pork, or lamb rub. Barbecue, sear, or roast the meat and marvel in the depth and richness that cocoa powder adds! Use the same idea for chilli! Cocoa powder compliments spicy flavors; adding layers of intrigue. For a spin on your morning coffee, add a tablespoon of cocoa powder to your percolator filter for a mocha infused cup of joe! If using a coffee machine that functions with k-cup or pods, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder to your cup before brewing your latte, cappuccino, or even espresso! Coffee enhances the taste of chocolate, creating a flavor combination that is truly irresistible.
