Introduction: Easy Raw Chocolate Sauce
Eating a raw vegan diet doesn't mean you can't treat yourself to the odd delicacy and this lovely chocolate sauce is just that.
You Will Need:
Raw Cacao Nibs
Raw Agave Nectar
Step 1: Soak
Take your nibs and place them in a glass cup, jar or other container. Add enough water to cover them and let sit for about 24 hours. This step makes all the difference in how smooth your chocolate sauce will be.
Step 2: Blend
For about a half cup of soaked cacao nibs you will want to add a quarter cup of agave nectar and approximately three tablespoons of water. Blend together until smooth, then blend some more until it's even more smooth.
Step 3: Test
Check the consistency of your chocolate sauce. If you're going to use it right away it should be perfect but if you've let it sit for some hours after blending you may notice that it has thickened - just add a couple more tablespoons of water and mix it up.
Step 4: Enjoy
Serve your chocolate sauce with strawberries or other fresh fruit or use as a topping for raw vegan cashew "ice cream" Delicious!
