As a raw food fanatic and lover of cacao, I find sweet, chocolatey, nutty Rawtella to be a true gift. The flavor is amazing, and the consistency is as smooth as peanut butter. It has replaced chocolate coconut butter on my shelf. The texture of Rawtella is a rare find in the raw food world. Not often does one find a raw dessert product on the shelf that isn’t dried, and Rawtella quenches ones “thirst” for something moist and creamy. It can even be used to transform those dehydrated raw treats into smooth, chocolatey, melt-in-your-mouth desserts. For instance, I love those raw coconut macaroons, but I find them to be a bit dry when eaten by themselves. With a dollop of Rawtella, they are perfect.
Rawtella was a huge hit at my chocolate-themed birthday party. My guests were a mixed crowd of raw foodies, vegans, vegetarians, and omnivores; and they all went absolutely gaga over Rawtella. We all enjoyed Rawtella as dip for fresh organic strawberries and banana slices, as a base for hot chocolate, drizzled over popcorn, and as the icing on the raw birthday cake!
The best part of the whole Rawtella experience for me is that with every mouth-watering spoonful comes the knowledge that I am doing something great for my body. It is such a pure and simple food – only three, extremely nutritious, ingredients – all raw, vegan, and organic. Everyone knows the health benefits of cacao, but most people don’t know the amazing nutritional value of a raw, soaked, organic hazelnut. Hazelnuts have more proanthocyanidin, an extremely powerful antioxidant, than any other nut. The combination of the hazelnuts and the cacao make Rawtella an antioxidant powerhouse. And what is surprising is the nutritional value of coconut sugar. Coconut Sugar is high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron and is a natural source of the vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C. It is much lower on the Glycemic Index than sugar and honey as well.
I would recommend Rawtella to anyone that cares about their health, and is in the mood for a deliciouos, chocolatey, rich dessert. Enjoy every guilt-free spoonful!
