Chocolate Ice Cubes! ~ Raw and Vegan Kids Saturday!

This summer, at Raw on $10, Saturdays are for kids!

I think it would be fun to do some raw and vegan recipes for kids. Dishes that are simple enough for them to make mostly on their own, with just a little bit of supervision. Learning about foods, how to make them, where they come from, what's healthy ... it's good to get started young on those things!

So, every Saturday throughout the summer, I'll have some kind of fun and easy to make recipe or a raw and vegan food project.

I'll sometimes enlist the help of my assistants and advisers, Alexandria who is five, and, Ledger, who is four. This is our first recipe and we even made a video. The Chocolate Ice Cubes are vegan but not totally raw. The recipe can easily be made raw by using raw cacao powder and coconut palm crystals, although keep in mind that raw cacao is likely more potent and stimulating than plain cocoa powder.

Chocolate Ice Cubes
makes one batch ~ about $1.50 per batch

 

ingredients

  • 3 spoons coconut oil (about $.30)
  • 3 spoons cocoa powder or raw cacao powder (about $.60)
  • 3 spoons powdered sugar or powdered coconut palm crystals (about $.60)
  • 1 dash salt

equipment
  • 1 ice cube tray 

Measuring for this recipe ...

A "spoon" is any spoon. You can use a tablespoon or a soup spoon or whatever kind of spoon you have. If you want a lot of chocolate ice cubes, use a big spoon!!
(What's important is that you use equal parts of the first three ingredients!)

Stir together all the ingredients and pour into an ice cube tray. Fill the little ice cube compartments about a half inch deep with chocolate.

Put in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

Pop chocolates out of ice cube tray and enjoy!!
