I have the absolute pleasure of sharing with you one of the recipes from my soon-to-be-released book: a book entirely dedicated to raw chocolate and cacao recipes. Today I am sharing a recipe for Raspberry Rose Shatavari Chocolate Delights.
I have been working with cacao for many years, and this book has been a long time coming. Cacao is, as many of us know, a nutritional powerhouse, rich in healthy fats, fibre, magnesium, and iron, just to mention a few. However, cacao is also a beautiful plant medicine, and with the right intention, can be used for ceremonial purposes and ritual, as a heart-opening elixir, and for spiritual purposes.
In this recipe, I have combined cacao with raspberries, rose (Rosa spp.), and Shatavari. Raspberries and cacao are a delicious combination, complementing each other perfectly.
Shatavari is one of my favourite herbs for reproduction. The name Shatavari translates to “having one hundred roots”, and sometimes to “having one hundred husbands” due to its history of being used for the reproductive system (The Benefits of Shatavari, 2021).
Rose essential oil has been added to the recipe for its incredible aroma, and as a symbol of femininity, grace, and beauty.
I hope you love this recipe and have fun re-creating it in your own kitchen.
