Coconut Oil & Raw Cacao Beauty Bites



Most of the recipes on Fresh-Picked Beauty are meant for the outside of the body, but today I want to share a recipe I created to make you beautiful from the inside.  Lately I have incorporated more and more "super foods" into my recipes and diet. This recipe is for my Coconut Oil & Raw Cacao Beauty Bites.  I indulge in one per day as a dessert! You are going to LOVE this recipe!


You will need the following ingredients..........



1 cup Cacao powder.....

1/2 cup Honey Powder....

2 teaspoons Acai Powder....

2 teaspoons Pomegranate Powder....

1/4 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Powder....

2 teaspoons Maca Powder....

1 tablespoon Coconut Milk Powder....

1/2 cup Virgin Coconut Oil....

2 tablespoons Shredded Coconut (Unsweetened)....

Add the honey powder into the coconut oil and mix well to combine in a large heatproof glass measuring cup placed in a pan with a few inches of simmering water. Stir until the coconut oil is melted.

Stir in the cocao powder and mix well.

In a small bowl, combine the Acai powder, pomegranate powder, vanilla powder, goji powder, Maca powder and coconut milk powder.  Stir into the melted coconut oil/cocao powder mixture. Add in the shredded coconut and mix well to combine.


Pour the mixture into a small silicone baking mold and cool in a refrigerator until firm. 

Once they have firmed up, remove them from the baking mold and store in an air-tight container and use within 30 days. 

Enjoy!!
