I just discovered Nutiva products. You can find some of them in Whole Foods Market and online. I plan to make these Raw Cacao Drops.
- 1/2 cup Medjool dates (pits removed)
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1/4 cup cacao powder Raw
- 1/4 cup coconut Unsweetened Shredded
- 1/4 cup Pecans Raw (can also use walnuts or almonds)
- 1/4 cup Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Organic
- 1/4 cup almond butter
- Few drops vanilla extract
- 1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chips Dark Vegan (Can use raw chocolate chopped up or carob chips)
- In a Vitamix or high speed blender, add dates and water and blend until smooth.
- Add all ingredients except chocolate chips and blend until thick and chunky.
- Transfer to a bowl and add chips if you are using them.
- Mix until chips are incorporated and form into balls.
- Refrigerate to harden a bit and enjoy!

I am compiling a list of GMO Verified products to help you make informed buying decisions. As you are probably aware, the FDA does not require the labeling of (genetically modified organisms) gmo ingredients. I believe it’s our right to know what we are eating and so do the companies listed below. I am also convinced that gmos cause cancer.
This list is constantly being updated. So check back often.
