Tastes like chocolate milk but there is no dairy anywhere to be seen. There is also NO sugar anywhere to be seen!!!
OK... Here is the recipe. Its so simple you might even fall off your chair reading this yet the goodness is amazing.
Milk: 750 ml of filtered/spring (but not tap please) water, 1 1/2 tbsp
tahini, 5-6 mejool dates (or ordinary dates soaked overnight) and 3-4
tbsp raw cacao!! Blend ingredients together.
OK..here are the benefits: Filtered or spring water speaks for itself. Tahini ( available in a jar from your healthfood shop or supermarket). Tahini is a paste that is made by finely grinding sesame seeds in order to release their oil content. It is very easy to include in the diet and is best known as one of the main ingredients in hummus.
Tahini is a nutritional powerhouse, being high in vitamins E, F and T, as well as vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B15, biotin, and choline. It is also a source of vitamin A. Tahini is also 20 percent complete protein – making it a richer protein source than milk, soya beans, sunflower seeds, and most nuts.
Tahini is one of the highest sources of methionine, an essential amino acid, and also contains lecithin, which reduces the levels of fat in the blood and also protects against environmental toxins such as nicotine. Tahini is also high in minerals such as magnesium, potassium, iron, and phosphorus, and is an excellent source of calcium. In fact tahini is claimed to be the best source of calcium there is and, unlike the dairy products that supply calcium in the western diet, it is not mucus forming.
Health benefits of dates are uncountable, as this fruit is affluent in natural fibres. Dates are even rich in several vitamins and minerals. These natural products contain oil, calcium, sulphur, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, copper and magnesium which are advantageous for health. It is said that consumption of one date daily is necessary for a balanced and healthy diet. Dates help in fighting constipation, intestinal disorders, weight gain, heart problems, sexual weakness, diarrhoea and abdominal cancer. dates are one of the planets most complete foods.
Raw cocao powder contains many rare key nutrients that enhance physical and mental well-being. It also contains more ANTIOXIDANT flavanoids than most other food including Red Wine, Green Tea and Blueberries. Other essential minerals present in Cacao are Calcium, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Sulfur, and Potassium.
