Raw Chocolate Recipe

Ultimate Raw Chocolate If you make chocolate yourself, by hand you have full control over the ingredients  and their proportions.

Pear is much lower in carbs and helps to keep our blood sugar steady. Try swapping the banana for a pear in your favourite smoothie recipes. Tropical fruits are higher in sugar so avoid them, berries...
