Mayver’s Peanut & Cacao Spread

It was CHOCOLATE week in the UK last week – and chocolate week is always a good thing! 😋🍫⠀

So to celebrate, we’re sharing our latest gooey chocolatey find.⠀

But before we share the love, did you know that there is a difference between Cocoa and Cacao powder – and one is better than the other?⠀

According to iquitsugar.com, raw cacao powder is made by cold-pressing unroasted cocoa beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cocoa and removes the fat.⠀

Cocoa looks the same, but it’s not – it’s in fact raw cacao that’s been roasted at high temperatures. Roasting changes the molecular structure of the cocoa bean, reducing the enzyme content and lowering the overall nutritional value.⠀

So wherever possible, we recommend to stick with raw cacao in your chocolate spreads and all your yummy chocolate purchases.⠀

You can use raw cacao powder:⠀
– in muesli⠀
– mixed with yoghurt⠀
– in smoothies⠀
– in protein balls⠀
– to make hot chocolate⠀
– to replace cocoa powder in baking⠀

Yes, it’s not as sweet as you may be familiar with, and the slightly bitter taste takes a little getting used to 🙈, but once you do and start reducing your sugar content, you won’t go back.⠀

Our recommendation to replace chocolate spreads in your pantry is with:⠀
Mayver’s Food All Natural Peanut Cacao Spread 375gms, available from Coles Supermarkets health aisle Australia-wide – $6.59*⠀

🍃 Just two ingredients: Organic Peanuts and Raw Cacao⠀
🍃 Certified Organic⠀
🍃 No added oil, fats, salt or sugar⠀

Peanuts are good sources of tryptophan, an essential amino acid important for the production of serotonin, one of the key brain chemicals involved in mood regulation. Cacao contains high levels of essential feel-good chemicals anandamide and phenylethylamine. Each element plays a role in inducing feelings of elation, relaxation and happiness.⠀

That’s enough reason for us to choose this healthy chocolate spread 😃 ⠀

Give us a hell yeah if you love chocolate, too 🙌😋🍫 .
