Rich, dark, and delicious!

Try this quick, delicious organic cocoa recipe…if you are a Vegan use organic unsweetened almond milk or your  dairy free beverage of choice.  If you drink dairy use organic grass fed milk. I used the almond milk and savored every drop…it’s like a shot of expresso…

1. In a small pot add 1 c. organic unsweetened almond milk and bring to a simmer.

2. Add 1 heaping t. Heavenly Cocoa from McTwigin Spice and whisk thoroughly.

3. Enjoy! This dark cocoa mix is organic, sugar free, and guilt free. It’s sweetened naturally with xylitol and is gluten free.

Share this simple recipe with your family, friends, and loved ones. Enjoy a cup just before bed and have sweet dreams…

Persimmon – Sexiest fruit alive!

Succulent persimmon!

Persimmons are known to the ancient Greeks as “The fruit of the gods.” They are generally first available in November and are an often overlooked brightly colored orange fruit that are rich in fiber, minerals, and natural sugars. They must be fully ripe and soft to the touch to use or else they will taste quite puckery.

There’s nothing quite like biting into a fully ripe persimmon and letting it burst in your mouth with its sweet succulent flavor!
