When summer comes I start looking into making more raw food recipes. It is more appealing to me and they are cooling and help reduce inflammation. This recipe is easy and combines raw ingredients and sweet flavor that is good for pacifying Pita which is aggravated in the summer for a wining combination.

In aryuveda, Pita is the ruling dosha for the summer. It is important to follow guidelines that consider this. If you are new to these concepts, see my post that gives an introduction to some ayurvedic guidelines for the summer.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon raw cocoa
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds

Preparation

  • Melt the coconut oil in a bowl. I place it inside another bowl filled with hot tap water.
  • Add maple syrup and combine well.
  • Add sifted raw cocoa and mix well.
  • In a silicone mold, put the almonds and seeds combine. If you like smaller pieces, you can chopped them. I chose wholes to preserve the nutrients.
  • Pour the cocoa sauce over the nuts and seeds mixture. Make sure it covers them all.
  • Place in the freezer for 30 minutes. You can also put in the fridge for several hours until hard.
  • Remove form the mold, serve, eat and enjoy! Keep refrigerated.
