Cacao Nibs Recipe
Grinding Nibs Using a Blender
Easy Grind Nibs - Using the Oster Mini Jar
Blend Liquid Ingredients
Liquid amounts -
- 2 to 3 Tbsp Fat - our choice, Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
- 2/3 Cup Liquid - our choice, Coconut Water
Blend until mixed well.
Add Dry Ingredients
Turn blender on and add the dry mixture, one tablespoon at a time. Mixture should be thin when dry ingredients have been added. Blend one or two minutes to make smooth.
Last Step - Blending Nibs Ingredients
Add the following while blender is running:
- Sweetener - our choice, 1/4 tsp Stevia (amount to suit your own taste)
- Flavoring - our choice, Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oil
- Remaining 6 Tbsp of Mesquite Powder a little at a time.
- Pulse the blender to get as much of the dry mixture in.
- Stop blender and scrape sides to get well mixed.
- Continue to pulse, blend and then stop to scrap sides until well mixed.
Always Taste Test
Ingredients are not always the same from batch to batch even though from the same manufacturer due to raw organic food variations being grown. Taste your results and determine your desired thickness. At this stage, the mixture should thicken up in the refrigerator or be like soft pudding at room temperature. Taste your mixture.
- Too chocolatie? Add more mesquite (2 or 3 teaspoons at a time) and a little more coconut oil (2 or 3 teaspoons) and then taste.
- Too bitter? Add a little more sweetner and taste.
- Too thin? Add a little more Mesquite Powder.
- Too thick? Add a little more liquid of your choice.
Work this back and forth until you are satisfied with the taste and thickness. This last step of blending nibs ingredients can take a while but you'll end up with what you really like.
Pour into 4 oz containers having lids and place in refrigerator for about an hour or so if you like it thick. If not, just serve!
This recipe will make about 9 oz of chocolate treat. You decide how much to put into each serving. I usually make about 3 oz per serving. I use the 4 oz Ball Jelly Jars because I prefer glass, but there are 4 oz plastic containers out there as well. All kinds of containers can be purchased from Amazon if you don't find what you are looking for locally.
