I thought I’d mix up the taste of my morning shake today, so I added a couple of teaspoons or Peruvian Raw Cacao powder, and really like the result. The raw Cacao is a super food, rich in anti-oxidants, and tends to give me an energy boost too, which is great. I don’t know for sure whether Cacao is an ‘allowed’ food for people with IBD; the SCD diet says no chocolate of any kind, but others say that Cacao is fine. Jeannie’s divine chocolate doesn’t seem to be doing me any harm, so I’m sticking with it until I feel otherwise.
Here’s the recipe I ended up with, in case you’d like to try it yourself.
Half an Avocado
1 Scoop Organic Whey Protein Powder
2 Teaspoons of Organic Raw Cacao Powder
Water – the amount depends on how thick you like your shake
Honey to taste
A couple of grinds of Himalayan Pink Salt
