Think cacao powder, maca powder, coconut oil, agave, goji berries, chia seeds and the list goes on. Does some of these superfoods sounds familiar? If you say yes, I am sure you may have seen them around in health food stores, smoothies or even in a cafe menu. That’s right, the latest health food and superfoods craze is currently gaining its popularity not only within health freaks and gym junkies but in everyone in general to incorporate clean and healthy eating to everyday life.
A few weeks ago, I was invited by Meredith Drynan, the owner of Roar Superfoods to attend a two hour raw chocolate workshop at Spearwood. Attending the workshop was fellow blogger, Raychael from Agent Mystery Case. With funky thermometer guns and lots of whisking with guidance and tips from Meredith, we made our very own raw chocolate as the final product. Apart from chocolate making, we indulged in some chocolate too. Trust me, you will definitely be taken to chocolate heaven during the two hours.
If you want to make your own chocolate at home, Roar Superfoods also stocks top quality superfoods and raw chocolate. You can also check out their website for a stockist near you too!
At the site, everything is hand made from scratch and packaged with lots of love. No machinery is used during the production process. In addition, this ready made raw chocolate has a shorter shelf life than most brands as it is made with fresh ingredients and contains all the good stuff that you have heard about dark chocolate. There’s no dairy, no refined sugar, no preservatives, no stabilisers, no emulsifiers and no fillers. Plus, it’s low GI, naturally gluten free and full of flavour!
We also did a taste comparison between the chocolate we made during the afternoon and some regular chocolate. I must say that there is a notable difference. Unlike the regular chocolate, the raw chocolate gives a clean, finished taste on the palate instead of leaving a chewy texture. To complement our chocolate tasting, we had a healthy chocolate smoothie made by Meredith with some of the Roar Superfoods products. It was just sensational!
Voila! Our end product!
I really enjoyed and had fun during the whole two hours of the Raw Chocolate Workshop. Not only that, the session was very informative as I have learnt a lot about superfoods and raw chocolate from Meredith’s wealth of knowledge about healthy foods. If you love your chocolate and want to learn how to make your own raw chocolate at home, I highly recommend attending the Raw Chocolate Workshop!
Last but not least, I would like to thank Meredith from Roar Superfoods for inviting me to attend the raw chocolate workshop. I really had a great time! 🙂
