For review, I received raw Cacao Powder, Coconut Sugar and bite-sized Cacao Goji Superfood power snacks.
Navitas Naturals Raw Cacao Powder: This has excellent flavor and can be added to just about anything. I make Healthy Pudding with it, put it in my smoothies, coffee and any recipe that calls for a chocolate flavor. This product is certified organic, kosher, vegan, raw and is considered a Mayan Superfood. It’s rich in antioxidants, iron, fiber and magnesium. With only 5 net carbs and no sugar, this is a great way to give a chocolate flavor without the added sugar.
Navitas Naturals Coconut Palm Sugar: I absolutely love this in my coffee!
I noticed shortly after drinking my coffee in the morning (I used to load it with super sweet flavored nondairy creamers) that I would get really shaky and crave sweets way before lunch time. I realized that I was starting my day with a sugar high and that made my body crave sugar all day long to maintain that high. I sound like a drug addict. Well, in truth, it’s no different. So, I’ve ditched all refined sugars and gone on the hunt for healthy replacements. I like the natural stuff because it doesn’t give me a headache like some “fake” sweeteners.
Coconut Palm Sugar is a fabulous alternative that has a lower glycemic index than cane sugar, agave or honey. It’s especially high in potassium, magnesium and zinc, as well as vitamins B2, B3, and B6.
My latest creation, Super-Coffee, consists of: 2 cups black coffee (hot or cold), 1 tsp Raw Cacao Powder, 1 tsp coconut sugar, 1/4 tsp Maca powder* and a splash of unsweetened almond milk. It’s sweet and earthy and absolutely delicious! I have energy that lasts the WHOLE DAY!
*Navitas Naturals also carries a Maca Powder that I had purchased a while ago. This stuff was given to Incan warriors to boost their stamina and energy!
Cacao Goji Superfood Power Snacks: These bad boys are gluten and dairy free, high in fiber and vitamin C, and have no refined sugar! I love them because they are so convenient. I can grab them for school, work and stick them in the kids’ lunches.
