An Immune Protecting Chocolate 'Snack'
August 13, 2017
A great recipe to have on hand through the change of seasons and the colder months to safeguard our bodies against cold and flu and keep them strong. Each of the ingredients are either great immune boosters or highly supportive of a healthy body. If you’re not using honey, try stevia or xylitol or a sweetener of choice and only use therapeutic grade essential oils.
Preparation: 5 minutes
Serving size: 1 – 1 and 1/4 cups
- 1/4 cup raw, unfiltered honey (manuka would be great if available)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/8 cup organic ghee (optional)
- 2 drops each of a therapeutic grade oregano or clove oil, lemon oil, on guard (or an immunity blend), eucalyptus or frankincense – optional (note: leave the essential oils out if using for children under 6 years of age)
- 1 tsp cacao powder (optional & if you like chocolate)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
- Add all the ingredients into a blender or if at room temperature, add into a bowl and mix all ingredients well.
- If using a blender, blend on a low – medium speed until all ingredients are well combined.
- Spoon into a glass storage container.
- Take approx. 1/4 – 1 teaspoon a day during the change of seasons or when cold and flu bugs are around. The amount taken depends on age, weight and tolerance.
