Many times it is said that chocolate is fattening, but in fact, what is fattening is the sugar inside it, 100% pure and raw cacao is, in fact, a fantastic food and it is not a coincidence that it will be called Theobroma Cacao, which In Greek it means “food of the gods“. For this reason, I decided to propose today this recipe of vegan chocolate, super simple and delicious prepared with cacao paste and birch xylitol.
Cacao paste is the purest form of chocolate, it is raw cacao beans ground into a paste. Cacao paste is just one of the many products that can be obtained from the cacao beans.
Cacao is a product widely used today, but it comes from a very old tradition, indeed already in the Aztec and Mayan societies, cacao-based drinks were prepared.
