Basic Raw Chocolate Torte Recipe

A raw chocolate torte is so easy and quick to make. So when you fancy that little piece of something “sweet and indulgent”, that won’t take more than 5 minutes to make, the chocolate torte is the way to go! Not only does it taste great but it’s packed with good healthy oils, fibre and anti-oxidants.

 

And who said that chocolate was bad for you?


You’ll be pleased to know that raw chocolate is bursting with nutrition and has the highest anti-oxidant value of all the natural foods in the world!

Cocoa contains nearly twice the anti-oxidant levels of red wine and up to three times as much anti-oxidants as green tea. The wonderful “beauty” mineral sulphur that helps our hair and nails grow strong as well as help keep our skin beautiful is also to be found in this super food.

There is also the bioflavonoid benefit which helps maintain healthy blood flow and the wonderful chemical serotonin, which releases those, feel good endorphins.

It does leave one questioning, is there really any reason to deprive yourself of something so deliciously sweet and indulgent?

So surprise yourself and follow the delicious recipe below….
