I wanted a Chocolate shake with nothing in it to taint the flavor of chocolate. I also hadn't had my chia seeds for the day. Gotta get in those omega-3s! This is what I came up with. Simple and Yuuuum. : )

I made this cake for my birthday last week, and my raw friends found it really delicious. I like it too, because I love the combination of bananas and chocolate. If you do not like bananas, you do not have to include them.
While making the cake, you can enjoy the "leftovers" as delicious raw drinks: The water from the 2 young coconuts, as well as the soaking water from the dates which is nice and sweet.
BTW, what is the difference between a blender and a food processor?
I love the cacao/spices combination. I use spices not only for their lovely taste, but also for their medicinal properties: turmeric and black pepper help prevent cancer, ginger warms you up and gives you energy, cinnamon is antibacterial, cumin helps digestion...
For these lollypops, I used my regular raw fudge recipe, I don't remember where it comes from exactly, it was inspired by many other recipies and modified over the time. Any raw fudge would be great. I had lots of fun making these Valentine's day hearts with the kids. They enjoyed choosing their favorite spices. The most liked flavours: Espelette pepper, turmeric-coconut powder, cinnamon-cacao, cinnamon-cacao-ginger.
