Recipe of the week: Chocolate Orange Bites

by Polly N on April 18, 2014

I first made this recipe back in 2010 which is from my dear friend and raw foodist Shazzie. She came up with the recipe for her daughter Evie to ensure she was getting a good concentrated source of protein. I remember making it for the very first time and using my brand new heart shaped dish, which I took to a Noble family gathering along with another cake I made as you can see on the left in the photo below. Yes, thankfully my presentation skills have improved over the years…I hope! ;o)



This time around, I was missing a few ingredients that Shazzie used (including one which offers a large portion of the protein content) so please note this is an adapted version. The recipe does call for some superfoods which you may not be familiar with so click on the highlighted links for more info. If you’d like the full recipe, check out Shazzie’s site and books which I highly recommend.

Chocolate Orange Bites

Melt the cacao butter gently and place into a Vitamix or high-speed blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture (which will be quite dense) into a mould with cling film which will make it easier to take out.
