These days it seems like the internet is crammed with food bloggers promoting exotic ingredients that most of us have never heard of. I want to explain some of the more confusing, and why you should bother to buy them.
This is one of my personal favourite 'weird' ingredients. It is used to replace cocoa powder, and one of the plus sides is that you need much less of it for a chocolatey flavour. I use it in smoothies, such as my Carrot and Banana Smoothie or in mug cakes such as my Banana and chocolate mug cake.
Used instead of - Cocoa powder
Where to buy it - Large supermarkets or health food shops
Why should I buy it - It is much better for your body than shop bought chocolate, and a little bit gives you a lot of flavour. It is much less processed than chocolate and doesn't have added sugar.
