Hey guys welcome to Gitte’s Kitchen. I’m doing a special edition, Magic Medicinal Mushrooms Raw Chocolate dish for you. I have my very special mushrooms in the coffee grinder. We are going to use amazing ceremonial grade cacao. They are doing ceremonies all around the world with cacao now because it opens your heart, it’s amazing for iron zinc magnesium. Specially if you are vegan it immediately replenishes your brain. Coconut butter obviously the finest quality raw vegan, local honey (agave for vegan), amazing for allergies and other problems. Some cayenne one of the most amazing stimulants in the plant world. Turmeric it’s anti-inflammatory. Ginger so you can digest this in a very beautiful peaceful way.

Start by taking out some ceremonial grade superfood cacao. Use 3 huge tablespoon fulls. Then we are going to take our coconut butter. Use as much as the cacao, maybe a little bit more. Then we are going to take our bowl to the dehydrator.  Make sure it’s not above 118 degrees so it doesn’t kill any of the nutrients in the chocolate. Well let it sit in there for an hour and it will be melted and then we can add the other ingredients.

We are going to shred our turmeric and ginger together. When you are finish mixing the ginger and turmeric together, use the coffee grinder and make the mushroom powder. Mix the powder into the turmeric and ginger. I’m going to want to add some cayenne pepper for flavor. You can also add some sea salt to make it extra delicious. Make sure you mix it well.

Put all the ingredients in the bowl and blend it up smooth. Add some honey as a sweetener but a little goes a long way. After mixing the ingredients go ahead and fill a tray with the chocolate, push the chocolate down so it becomes smooth.

Now we filled up our chocolate in the tray, place it in the fridge for a couple of hours and it will be ready to be enjoyed.

Super cute. I put a few in a jar for some special friends.

My name is Gitte Thank you for watching!
