Vanessa's Raw Chocolate Sauce
- 1 c. maple syrup* (grade B if you have it)
- 1/2 c. agave nectar
- 6 Tbls. raw cacao nibs
- 2 Tbls. cacoa powder**
- 1 Tbls. virgin coconut oil
- 1 tsp. nama shoyu
- seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean (optional)
Place all ingredients in your VitaMix and blend on high for approx. 30 seconds until smooth. This sauce can be used for many things.
*Agave nectar can be used in place of the maple syrup. It just won't give it as much depth of flavor as the maple syrup does. **Carob powder can be used in place of the cocoa powder, or you can do half carob, half cocoa.
