New Moon Chocolate Truffles
Maybe a little late for Valentines.. But better late than never and everyone loves chocolate, so I hope you can forgive me.
Did you all practice some self-love yesterday? I watched Pretty Woman, ate pancakes and read. This New Moon energy is getting to me.. feeling a little wired. Can’t wait for another sacred wheel email today! If you haven’t met Lindsay Mack I highly recommend that you check her work out, especially these days when everything seems to be moving so fast, and we are oh so sensitive.
In honor of this Moon, our Endocrine system and Intuition I created these truffles. Infused with Mucuna Pruriens a bio-available source of L-dopa, an amino acid that becomes the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain that helps elevate mood, creativity, libido, and sleep patterns, while soothing the nervous system. And of course featuring raw Cacao a well known stress reliever, energy food and aphrodisiac. Cacao will send blood flow to the brain and actually jump start the biochemical love reactions.
The combination of raw almond butter and rose makes these the most deliciously intense (and healthiest!) chocolate truffles you’ll ever eat. The rose petals feed harmony and extra sensory perception, while the almond butter feeds the brain, nourishes the eyes, stimulates blood cells, and beautifies hair and skin.
1 1/2 cups of soaked almonds ou walnuts
2 heaping tbsp of raw almond butter
8 – 10 medjool dates, pitted
2 tbsp of raw cacao powder
1 tsp (or more) organic dried rose petals
1 tsp to 1 Tbsp of Mucuna
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
good pinch of raw vanilla powder
Pinch of pink salt
