Today chocolate is often called a sweet remedy for the prevention of depression and cancer.
But don't get confused, we are not talking about confectionery chocolate bars, but about natural cocoa beans and shavings from them, which are rightfully considered superfood.
It is in the cocoa base that there is a large concentration of nutrients and vitamins that improve mood and add vitality.
Cocoa beans contain several hundred extremely beneficial trace elements, some of which are irreplaceable. Potassium, iron, magnesium, sodium, zinc - these are all in excess.
It is only necessary to be careful with this product, especially for older women or who have hormonal disruptions. The daily rate should not exceed 20 g of cocoa chips.
Unfortunately, many manufacturers of chocolate products today are trying to save money and replace natural cocoa with something cheaper. And therefore, you obviously will not get the benefits of a purchased chocolate bar, but a dose of carbohydrates and sugar - for sure.
Let's say you figured out which chocolate to choose.
But what to do with children? Try to convince them that you can no longer buy their favorite chocolate!
The fact is that you can cook hot chocolate and various natural desserts from cocoa shavings on your own, please your loved ones and know for sure that the prepared delicacy has a lot of useful properties.
Cooking homemade chocolate
For its preparation, only two main ingredients are required - cocoa butter and cocoa chips (for 50 g of cocoa butter, 100 g of grated cocoa will be needed). Unfortunately, they are not widely available, but they are available with a little effort to acquire them.
