Christine’s Orchid Chocolate from Evie’s Kitchen – A Raw Recipe from Shazzie

One day my daughter Evie’s Gran, Christine, brought us a beautiful orchid; so, I just had to make a chocolate to celebrate its presence! Vanilla is the only edible orchid, which is why it’s in here. Out of all the chocolates I’ve made, this one is Evie’s favorite, as it’s light and sweet – just like her Gran.

Serves: Yield depends on the size of molds used.

2 cups Raw cacao butter
1 cup Raw lucuma powder
1 1/2 cups Raw mesquite powder
4 Tbs Raw coconut butter
4 Tbs Raw cacao powder
4 Tbs Raw carob syrup
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
Pinch of Himalayan pink salt

Gently melt the butters at a low temperature. In a separate bowl, mix all other ingredients together and then pour on the melted butters. Whisk everything together (or to make the chocolate super-fine, blend in a high speed blender for about thirty seconds to a minute). Pour the chocolate into molds. Allow to set in the fridge before storing or eating. You can pour into one big mold and cut the chocolate up if you don’t have enough small molds.

The chocolate will keep for at least a couple of months in a sealed container in the fridge.

Kev’s Note: Raw chocolate is best taken in small amounts as a treat, not as a health food. There’s no problem having it as a dessert once in a while. Those who have adrenal issues and excessive stress should stay away, since it can cause the adrenals to overwork, create acidity in the body and cause adrenal fatigue.

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    I was hoping to see Shazzie on video as I remember very much enjoying her interview with Kevin years ago (before the cacao debacle). I’m inspired to try this recipe right now!

  2. Veronic says:

    Orchid chocolate! It looks so yummy! Can you please translate from grams to cups please?


  3. I’ve never seen carob syrup before…is that something you make by mixing carob powder and water or is it bought somewhere? Anyone know where to get that?

    Raw chocolate is a very healthy food, if for you it doesn’t work of course you should’t eat it.
    But don’t say that it isn’t a healthy food just because it isn’t good for you.
    What works for you it doesn’t mean it will work for everybody.
    Thanks for your work.
