Those of you that follow this blog would know that I have a MASSIVE SWEET TOOTH AND WOULD RATHER DIE THAN LIVE A DAY WITHOUT CHOCOLATE.
A little dramatic, yes. But totally true.
Chocolate is my ride or die bestie. I make it. I buy it. And sometimes when I’m lucky enough, I get sent some to call my own. (Which kind of feels ridiculous.) Anyway, that’s how I stumbled on The Chocolate Yogi.
For those of you who aren’t aware, I like to call The Chocolate Yogi – chocolate with benefits. It’s organic, it’s vegan and made with pure wholefoods your entire family will be able to share (however I prefer to hide my stash instead).
Anyway, some of their chocs are even shaped into cute, tiny monkey shapes so your kids will go NUTS for them (Javier was obsessed)…but they won’t get a massive sugar high after they eat them. Which is THE BEST…(seriously hands up who wants to deal with toddlers on a sugary high?)
To cut things short though, The Chocolate Yogi are an Aussie start up business who not only make kick a$$ vegan chocolate but they donate a percentage of their profits to The Orangutan Project, an organisation who save orangutan orphans through conservation, too.
(Remember – its chocolate with benefits?)
Founders of The Chocolate Yogi, Malindi and Ed say “at The Chocolate Yogi, we believe change is in our hands. We dream of a sweeter tomorrow where animals, people and the planet are protected, nurtured and cared for. We believe this can happen through all of us making kind and conscious food choices, by focusing on creating the change we want to see and taking action to make those changes happen.”
And I say AMEN. Seriously I am so down with BOTH their vegan chocolate and their cause. Which is why I wanted to share.
Plus, when The Chocolate Yogi’s vegan recipe developer reached out and wanted to share a raw, vegan dessert recipe with you all I was like GIMMEEEEEEEE, GIMMEEEEE GIMEEEEE! Because I knew you guys would love!
And if you didn’t at least I knew that I would love LOL. Because raw vegan desserts are life…and also kinda justifiably good for you. Plus, they’re like the only dessert that I can make because there’s no baking involved.
