Frozen Chocolate Superfood Bites
Did you know grapes are a type of berry? Like most berries, grapes are nutritional powerhouses and full of healthy antioxidants, especially resveratrol. Frozen grapes give these superfood bites a delicious cool juiciness, while a superfood chocolate blend further boosts their antioxidant content and adds essential vitamins and minerals. The coconut oil adds essential fatty acids, including healthy medium chain triglycerides and lauric acid, and gives theses a great coconut flavor!
- 2 cups organic seedless grapes
- ¼ cup melted Blue Breeze Virgin Coconut Oil or Perfect Coconut Oil
- ¼ cup raw organic honey
- ¼ cup raw cacao powder
- 1 T Perfect Acai Powder
- 2 t Limitless Good Baobab Powder
Wash, dry, and freeze grapes at least 30 minutes ahead of time. In a bowl, combine remaining ingredients and mix until smooth and glossy. Dip the frozen grapes in the chocolate mixture one at a time and spread out on a tray or baking sheet. We learned the hard way that just dumping all the frozen grapes into the chocolate at once will leave you with a big clumpy ugly mess! Once all the grapes are covered in chocolate, put the tray back in the freezer for 30 more minutes or until chocolate has hardened. Store in fridge or freezer.

- 3/4 cup finely chopped raw cocoa butter, melted (1/2 cup melted)
- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, room temperature
- 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
- 2 T cashew butter or sunbutter
- 1 T Vaxa Harvest Fusion Powder
- 1 T Catie’s Organic Greens Powder
- 1 t vanilla extract
- Pinch of sea salt
Melt the cocoa butter in a double boiler at a low temperature. Once the cocoa butter has melted, mix all ingredients together in the double boiler, and stir until mixture is smooth and free of lumps. Pour into mini cupcake papers. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before eating. Store in fridge, or at room temperature for a softer, fudge-like chocolate.
- Add nuts and/or dried fruits into cupcake papers while the chocolate is still soft. One of our favorites was a mix of pecans and cranberries. Cashews taste great too!
- Use extracts for a flavor boost. Mint extract (1/8 teaspoon, stirred in before pouring into cupcake papers) is one option we tried, but experiment with what you have on hand and let us know if you come up with any great combinations!
