Self-love starts with the right food in my book. As someone who has joined the movement to take better care of myself this year and with Valentine's Day on the horizon, I've been seeking inspiration for a treat that would satisfy all my dietary needs as a chocoholic, plant-based foodie, and the queen of spices!
High in protein from cashew butter and almond flour, sweetened with B6 and iron-rich blackstrap molasses, covered in heart-healthy and antioxidant-rich dark chocolat and infused with a superbly balanced spice blend traditionally used to make golden milk or a turmeric latte, these Golden Milk Chocolate Truffles will definitely do the trick.
Turmeric is always a key ingredient in making Golden Milk and revered for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and liver cleansing properties and definitely a spice we should all be consuming more of. However, turmeric does need to be used in a specific way for it to be properly ingested and its wonder properties to have any effect: with black pepper and a good fat such as coconut oil.
And of course it wouldn't be Valentine's without some aphrodisiacs in the mix like cardamom, ginger, and saffron, all of which are featured in the spice blend I use.
The chocolates are best stored in the fridge in an airtight container and best eaten within a few days, which shouldn't be a problem at all.
