We have discovered something amazing here at the Synchro Galactic kitchen! And finally after many nights of taste testing and careful recipe refinement we are ready to share this edible delight with the Synchroverse.
Since we have decided to write about this, you can rest assured that that this formula will not only make your mouth water, but also nourish your body, and promote clean focused energy. Some of our absolute favorite products made their way into this treat and we have further amplified the alchemy of Synchro Genesis by combining it with other impressive superfood-qualty ingredients. Not only will you experience all of the nutritional benefits of Synchro Genesis, but you will do so in a totally new way with a new texture and flavor.
Originally my intention was make raw chocolate macaroons (a bold attempt to satisfy my rather insatiable cacao and coconut obsession) After some experimentation it occurred to me to try out this recipe with Synchro Genesis as well. Turns out, this idea was a brilliant one! The combination and diversity of nutrition available right in front of me (in Synchro Genesis) was reason enough to give this a try. The balanced nutrition will also help to prevent a complete cacao overdose. (A semi-regular occurrence for me when working with raw chocolate.)
1 cup of shredded organic unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup Synchro Genesis
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup sprouted almonds (or another nut/berry)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 drop of vanilla essential oil
optional: pinch of Himalayan rock salt
In a medium sized mixing bowl combine the shredded coconut, Synchro G, and finely chopped sprouted almonds, toss this with your fingers until there is a consistent dry mix.
Add the coconut oil (do not melt it first!) add the vanilla extract or essential oil on top of the coconut oil and knead the ingredients by hand until a thick moist batter is formed (2-3 minutes)
Begin to form small spheres by rolling the mixture between your hands.
Sprinkle a pinch of Himalayan rock salt onto the spheres, and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Yields 15-20 spheres.
I know this can seem a little messy, but it is so worth it! you did just simply make spherical coconut-cacao-maca-pea-hemp-acai-spilulina-chorella-dandlion-dulse-kelp-vanilla-almond treats after all.
Raw almonds have tannic acid and an enzyme inhibitor in their brown skin that protects the nut until proper levels of sunlight and moisture allow it to germinate. The nut does not release enzymes until these conditions have been reached. By simply soaking raw almonds over night in spring water or filtered watered, you create these right conditions for the nut to shed it's skin, and greatly improve the nutritional value and level of digestibility.
Vanilla's anti-carcinogenic property primarily comes from the compound vanillin, a polyphenol known to be a powerful anti-oxidant. An array of vitamins and minerals are present in vanilla including B-complex, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.
