Congratulations to Charity S., Melissa S., and Mary R. for being randomly selected as winners in our recent Blue Agave blog contest. We loved hearing from everyone who shared their love for this wonderful product!
Many have commented on their favorite recipes containing Blue Agave. I thought it would be fun to share a few of them. I hope you enjoy!
Oh, and I almost forgot: I stumbled across a box of Slique™ Tea that I plan on using as a giveaway next week. Stay tuned!
“Raw” Chocolate Candy
125 g cacao butter
5 tablespoons cacao powder
3 tablespoons lucuma powder
2 tablespoons maca powder
2 tablespoons Young Living Blue Agave
A pinch of salt
3 drops Young Living peppermint essential oil
Melt cacao butter. I suggest using a hot water bath and grating the cacao small to melt it. Next add Blue Agave and salt and mix well. Then add powders and the peppermint oil. Mix well and do a taste test. Pour mixture into ice cube molds and put into freezer for 30–60 minutes. Once the chocolate has hardened, get it out of the freezer and let it sit for a while at room temperature. Never eat ice cold chocolate; you won’t taste all the magnificent flavors!
Coconut Oil Nut Butter Fudge
1/2 cup extra virgin coconut oil
2–4 tablespoons nut butter (peanut, almond, etc.) (peanut butter is my preference)
4–6 tablespoons cocoa powder or carob powder (more cocoa = a darker chocolate fudge)
2 T Young Living Blue Agave
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Gently heat coconut oil until liquid. Stir in all remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour onto parchment paper lined pan and freeze until solid. Cut or break into pieces and enjoy! Any leftovers must be kept refrigerated or frozen to stay solid.
