I was sitting at work today thinking that I really wanted a snack — and low and behold, our receptionist came in carrying a huge box from Artisina!
I’ve tried their coconut butter before and loved it, so they sent me samples of the rest of their products to check out! I am now the proud owner of little jars of cashew butter, pecan butter, almond butter, coconut butter, coconut oil, raw tahini, walnut butter, and… cacao bliss!
What is cacao bliss, you ask? It’s heaven in a jar, that’s what.
Ingredient: Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter, Organic Raw Coconut Oil, Organic Raw Agave Syrup, Organic Raw Cacao, Organic Raw Cacao Butter.
I called my colleague over and we enjoyed some spread on a brown rice cake — delish! It was sweet but not overly sweet and very chocolately. I’m excited to try it in all sorts of ways — blended into a smoothie, stirred into oatmeal… who else has ideas for ways to enjoy this treat?
Be on the look out for recipes incorporating some of my new nut butters. I’ve never cooked with coconut oil, so I’m excited to try a curry or stir fry with that!
In the mean time — go buy cacao bliss! A tasty, guiltless treat.
Update: Over the weekend, I treated myself to a scoop of coconut ice cream, with a fresh strawberries and a dollop of Cacao Bliss. It was delicious!
