Fancy some homemade Raw Chocolate?

483605_265512536897292_1693688767_nHello dear,

Donnot stress about the pic above if you feel you are not there but try to keep it in mind. To make conscious decisions and choices are the best you can do right now. The only one we should “compete” with is ourselves. Never ever compare ourselves with anyone else. As soon as we are thinking and paying too much attention on someone else – we loose the contact with our own inner being. With that said, we donnot think it is bad at all to be inspired by other people. The difference is to allow other people to make us feel good, not bad. We acknowledge their way of living and doing – we let their positive energy radiate to us. Let them give from their abundance – and we soak it all up. Let them empower ourselves. Never ever see other people´s way of living as a comparison with our own lives. We are all on different missions and have all different purposes here. Embrace YOUR uniqueness – and share your good vibes with the rest!

1365967338014We love to make our own raw chocolate. Not only is it super easy to make and tastes delish but you are also 100 % sure what your chocolate actually consists of. Your treats should only consist of good ingredients that should make you feel amazing. As always it is also best to keep it simple for your body with as few ingredients as possible for easy digestion. Very important by making your own chocolate you will probably in the end save money since it is much cheaper to bring your good choco vibes to the kitchen and create some yourself! We have so far not experimented that much with different raw chocolate creations but our dear friend Ragnhild is the raw chocolate queen so please check her blog for more recipes and inspirations.

But now let´s make some raw chocolate! For one little batch use the measurement we have written but keep them only as guidlines.

INGREDIENTS
– 4 big tbl coconut oil
– 1/2 cup raw cacao*
– 1/2 cup carob*
– 1 tbl agave
– Raw cacao nibs (optional)
– Goji berries (topping)

* We like to mix raw cacao with carob but it works absolutely perfectly without carob or why not do it only with carob. Play with what you have at home and it will most likely turn out delicious! 

Start with melting your coconut oil. When it is liquid add your raw cacao and carob together with agave. The more cacao you put the more delicious it will turn out! If you enjoy chocolate as much we do 😉 Go with the feeling while adding. Start with less and add more. Squeeze some agave in to get it a bit sweeter. The more you put the sweeter it will be. Pour it in to a form and sprinkle som raw cacao nibs over if you want to make it even more epic. Put the form in the fridge to chill for at least 20 min. If you are in a hurry you could put it in your freezer as well.

Take it and try to cut it as nicely you can. Before serving – sprinkle some goji berries on the top. Ready to be enjoyed!

Today´s powerful words come from Hermann Hesse and we found them extremely powerful and accurate: 

“You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation.. and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering, do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else.”

With our hearts,
Julie & Katrin

  1. Ååå, dere er så skjønne!! Takk ❤
    Deres sjokolade ser nydelig ut!! Har så lyst på gojibær, men er dessverre tom. Men sjokolade har jeg alltid da, så akkuart nå koser jeg meg med en kopp te og en bit sjokolade!
    Dere har så rett. Det er veldig fint å kunne se opp til og la seg inspirere av andre, men man skal aldri sammenligne seg eller føle seg dårligere enn andre. Det er en stor forskjell!
    Ønsker dere begge to en fin lørdag med jobbing og det hele! jeg skal straks gjøre meg klar til kosekveld med kjæresten, det blir så fint!
    Mange mange klemmer til dere to<3

    • Tack själva vackra du för all inspiration! Vi måste faktiskt också bunkra på med gojibär. Så gott och perfekt att strö över choklad, glass eller smoothie. Super nyttigt OCH gott dessutom! Det är verkligen en stor skillnad som du säger. Fokus inåt och låta andra inspirera en. Vi lever alla olika liv men man får plocka det bästa man ser hos andra och låta det kom in i ens liv på ett givande och positivt sätt 🙂 Ha en jätte fin start på dagen kära du!!! Många kramar 🙂

  2. Så enig! Man skal ikke sammenligne seg med andre, det har ingen hensikt, og oftest trekker det oss bare ned ved at man tenker på hva man ikke har osv.. 🙂 Håper dere har hatt en fin jobb-lørdag, og at dere får en fin dag i morgen 😀 Håper prosjektet deres går så bra som dere ønsker. Dere er to flinke jenter, som får til det dere vil. Jeg er så glad for at dere er så tøffe, som står frem med hva dere tror på. Jeg er så enig i det meste dere sier, og det får meg til å bli sikrere og tøffere også. Er glad jeg ikke er aleine om og synes temaer som dette er viktig og interessant. Takk for at dere er dere<3 God helg videre jenter! 🙂

    • Tack för dina kloka ord Marie! Så sant, vi är helt eniga med dig. Det är viktigt att hålla en linje på att enbart låta sig inspireras och inte gå över till att känna “åååh det skulle jag också…” i NEGATIV bemärkelse då. Utan “åååh vilken inspiration!!” istället 🙂 Tack så mycket för dina uppmuntran och pepp till projektet. Det går väldigt bra och vi kan knappt bärga oss att berätta om det för dig! Tack för alla fina ord och vi är så tacksamma att få ha dig i våra liv. Du är en helt fantastisk person som ger så mycket glädje och kärlek! Keep shining och ha en jätte fin start på veckan 🙂 Många kramar från oss båda!

  3. I love love love the quote at the beginning – it’s beautiful. I try and be there as much as possible, but sometimes I need a little reminder =)
    Your chocolate recipe sounds so good!!! I love using carob too =) Have you tried using cacao butter? It makes really good homemade raw chocolate. Mmmm chocolate…

    • Such a good reminder huh?! 🙂 It is so true in all aspects. Perfect indication to see how we are doing in this very moment! Carob is amazing. Love it and it is so good to mix together with raw cacao as well! Mmhmm chocolate indeed, nothing better 😉
