Kiva Organic Cacao Powder (Cocoa - Chocolate Powder) Review
Kiva Organic Cacao Powder, she told me that our grandmother used to use cacao (of course a different brand) to make chocolate milk (I didn't know that! How on earth did she know?!) for us. So, she instantly whisked the cacao powder from me and continued on to make grandmother's chocolate milk.
Here is a short history of cacao and a little something about Kiva Cacao Powder. :)
Cacao Powder: Cacao has been consumed by the Mayan and Aztec cultures for centuries due to its invigorating health properties. Cacao contains one of the richest sources of antioxidants found in nature and is a great source of magnesium, dietary fiber, iron, zinc, and potassium.
Kiva cacao powder is made from only the finest hand-selected premium Criollo cacao beans from Ecuador. Our low-temperature, minimal processing protects the cacaos natural nutrients and flavor. The result is a delicious powder that is just as nature intended, with no sugars or fillers.
1. Heat the milk.
2. Put the cacao powder (about 1/4 cup in this ratio).
3. Put sugar to add a bit of sweetness (she used a flavored creamer to add sweetness to our cacao drink)
Now all of these she did without measuring anything. I mean, I also do follow my instincts when cooking and I also don't measure ingredients to the recipes I know but she's a way better cook than I am. :) She finished making this in less than 5 minutes.
I can't wait to try the Kiva Organic Cacao Powder the next time we make cupcakes, frosting and chocolate fudge. :)
You can purchase the Kiva Organic Cacao Powder on AMAZON.
