Please note that some of the superfood powders i have used are optional and are not needed for this recipe. I add them to power it up and for all the unique benefits they offer.

I base my measurements off intuition and taste. You can use less sugar, more cacao etc. depending on your personal taste.

Note: you can opt out of avocado oil and choose to simply go with coconut oil or the oil of your choice.

Ingredients

2-3 tbsp Raw cacao powder

2 cups Hazel nuts

1 tbsp Coconut oil

1 tbsp Avocado oil

2-3 Dates

1 tsp Coconut sugar

1/2 tsp Ashwagandha

1/2 tsp Maca

1/2 tsp Ginseng

1/2 tsp Mucuna Kapikacchu

Instructions

  1. lightly roast the hazel nuts on very low heat for 5 minutes

  2. Use a food processor for this as a blender may not yield the desired result- put your hazel nuts and oil in and process until creamy.

  3. Add dates, powders, and sugar.

  4. Blend until creamy and smooth

Et voila! Super easy
