Raw cacao powder is packed with minerals and is very uplifting because of theobromine, a caffeine-like chemical; the one that in chocolate makes us go mmmmmmmm. So, go easy on raw cacao. Enjoy in moderation in smoothies, raw desserts, biscuits, even sprinkled into porridge or muesli first thing in the morning. I do this and can convince myself that I can go the morning without a coffee. And it often works!
