Chocolate Dipped Mandarin Slices for Christmas

“With all the heavy foods on Christmas is nice to have an easy dessert. When I make my Raw vegan chocolate I always end up with chocolate left in the bowl. Instead of eating it from the bowl, this time I decide it to put it on some mandarins. I like this fruit – chocolate combination and is also very healthy.

You can use mandarin, clementine or orange for this recipe. If you want to be bold try it with lemon or lime. A banana is a must especially if you use peanut butter and chocolate. This is also an excellent snack and very healthy to eat between meals or after effort.”

I have been storing black been pasta in my kitchen for a while now but it never got me thinking of endless possibilities out there. Personally, all black food sounds delicious to me… and looks even better!

Ps. I won’t focus on vegan only foods here because everything can be prepared with vegan ingredients.

Now, feast your eyes…

Could we have a recipe for black ice cream, you say?

Well, here you go!

I will be reinventing this recipe in a very near future! #charcoalordered

What do you think of this new food trend?
