So I bought this fantastic new cherry pitter for only $5 from HEB, and what else can I do besides eat them right away, well cover them in chocolate of course!! I think these were better than the real thing. I didn’t feel like I needed to brush my teeth twelve times when I finished them. So, when I searched around the internet for a chocolate covered cherry recipe, I could not find a raw vegan one! I was amazed!! So I conjured these little fellows up and voila, here you are.
Raw Vegan Chocolate Covered Cherries
Combine the ingredients for the cherries and sit aside.
Raw Cacao Powder
Pinch of Salt
Chili Powder (optional)
Warm the coconut oil to room temperature, until it becomes liquid. Mix in remaining ingredients. This is where I added it to a squeeze bottle to make it super mess free… spooning tends to get messy. (that’s what she said) If you are using a mold the trick is to put a little bit of chocolate in the top of the mold and freeze it first for about ten minutes. Then add your cherry and fill the remaining of the mold with chocolate. These will be finished pretty quickly, half an hour tops, but I couldn’t wait that long! Remove these promptly and store in the fridge so you don’t freeze the cherries.
A realistic approach to the raw food lifestyle. This blog is for both you and me. I wanted a place that I could track my meals, and gauge how different foods are affecting my body. This blog is also for you, because it's an honest approach to raw foods. With all the over the top blogs out there who are either misinformed or trying to sell you on the latest uber organic trademarked over the top hoopla, I prefer simple and easy. If I can't do it on a basic budget and in a working woman's time frame, than it's not a lifestyle and it's just another fad diet. But, I'd like to prove to both you and me that it's not.
