Happy Summer friends! I’m probably alone in my love for the heat, but I really do love the summer. Give me the 100 degree day with a slight breeze, even if it’s humid, I’m cool as a cucumber. I know, I’m a weirdo. I also really thrive on the awesome produce in season right now. Blueberries, black raspberries, cucumbers, cherries, snap peas, broccoli, (want to know more click here) I can go on and on. It’s so freakin’ awesome that nature brings all this deliciousness forth and miraculously cools us down. Yup, everything that comes into season has a purpose. Winter has heartier veggies and fruits that warm us up while summer has lighter, refreshing veggies and fruits to cool us down and flush the system from the winter sludge. Hello to feeling sexy in the summer and glowing in and out.

I mean, come on, what’s not to love?! I made these babies a little more interesting by turning the insides green! Yes! I added matcha to the coconut butter that just gave it a slight earthiness that my husband didn’t even notice. I think he actually ate way more than I did! I def snuck in some collagen, MCT oil and chaga mushroom to the melted chocolate to enhance the benefits of this good for you dessert (or ahem treat).

Further Food Commentary:

Since matcha powder is made from high quality tea and from the whole leaves, its a more nutrient dense source of polyphenols, which are antioxidants that have been shown to curb chronic diseases. The polyphenol EGCG has been shown to boost metabolism and slow the growth of cancer cells. Remember, since you're consuming the whole leaves, you're also consuming three times the amount of caffeine as if you were to have one cup of coffee. Cocoa powder is the mixture remaining after cocoa butter is extracted from cacao beans. With no additional sugar added to the mix, it can be useful to add the desired chocolate flavor without the unnecessary calories and fat. Each cup of cocoa powder contains 1311 g of potassium, which is an essential mineral found in plants that regulates sodium levels, blood pressure and heartbeat.
