Naked Hot Chocolat
By Teresa Cutter
What's great about it
Chocoholics rejoice! Now you can indulge in these energising super foods. Bursting with antioxidants, mineral rich cacao, carob, maca, cinnamon and pure vanilla bean, this potent blend provides sustained energy, supports the endocrine and immune systems and contributes to hormonal balance. Not only does Naked Chocolate promote optimal wellbeing – it tastes amazing too!
Inspired by my love of quality chocolate (and the movie Chocolat), I set out to create my own drinking chocolate after becoming disheartened by the excessive amounts of sugar, artificial sweeteners and chemicals used in products on the market. I’ve searched the world to bring together the best ingredients for my Artisan, European Style Drinking Chocolate.
Healthy Chef Naked Drinking Chocolate contains no added sugar, artificial sweeteners, flavours, fillers, chemicals or Synthetics. It is alkaline, low GI, non-GMO, gluten and dairy free and available in two delicious flavours:
Wild, Free + Natural. Tahitian Vanilla has exceptional tasting notes of caramel + a sensual floral aroma that evoked the wild, free spirit inside every cup.
Smooth + Sophisticated. Madagascan Bourbon Vanilla enhances the dark seductive chocolate experience, the exceptional tasting notes of roasted almond and just a hint of spice. A true marriage of flavours that is unforgettable.
HEALTHY CHEF NAKED CHOCOLAT BENEFITS:
No Added Sugar – Gluten Free – Alkaline – Non GMO – Dairy Free – Low GI– No Artificial Sweeteners, Flavours or Fillers – No Chemicals or Synthetics – Purely Delicious.
HEALTHY CHEF NAKED CHOCOLAT INGREDIENTS:
Alkaline Cocoa - Cacao is recognised as highest known antioxidant food on the planet and contains more antioxidants than blueberries, green tea and red wine. Cocao also contains Theobromine that boosts endorphins and increases mental alertness. Cocao also contains dopamine and serotonin, which produces a reaction in the brain similar to being in a state of bliss.
Organic Carob - Carob contains high levels of antioxidants and essential nutrients like vitamins A, E, B6 and D as well as calcium and iron. Carob is also a good source of fibre that naturally helps to regulate blood sugar levels (useful for people who suffer from diabetes or for weight loss).
Organic Maca - This powerful root powder helps rebuild a weak immune system, increases energy and endurance and is an adaptogen which helps increase the body’s ability to adapt to stress.
Pure Vanilla Bean – Pure and fragrant vanilla bean powder from Tahiti and Madagascar is used in this delicious blend. Vanilla is an aromatic stimulant that helps to relax the nervous system and reduce inflammation. It is rich in antioxidants and can also enhance mental performance.
Cinnamon - Cinnamon improves insulin’s efficiency, which helps regulate blood sugar levels.
French Artisan Sea Salt – Hand harvested using traditional Celtic methods in Guerande, France. Seawater is evaporated in clay-lined salt ponds and hand raked by French salt farmers as the crystals form. High in 84 sea minerals including magnesium, riron, manganese, zinc, iodine and potassium.
