For when cravings call: BioBalance Certified Organic Raw Cacao Powder

Containing a rich combination of antioxidants, raw cacao powder is a nourishing choice for your mind, bod and soul. From your soothing cup of cacao (our Raw Cacao Hot Chocolate is a must-try) to your everyday snack – like these truffle bites, satisfy sweet cravings with this nutritious choice.

Here’s why I love cacao:

  • Rich in B vitamins for thriving energy
  • Contains minerals like calcium and iron
  • No added sugar
  • Great source of antioxidants

Feel-good getaways or on-the-go? Try ROAR Organic Coconut Milk Powder

Whether you’ve planned a trip away or you’re always on the move, coconut milk powder makes it easy. Made fresh from coconut cream, it’s an excellent substitute for anyone steering clear from dairy. From curries to smoothies or bliss balls, this versatile powder adds a rich and creamy element to your meal – or snack, of choice.



  1. Remove pips from dates and soak in boiling water for 10 minutes until softened. Drain and blend into a smooth paste.
  2. Transfer date paste to a medium bowl and sieve in cacao, almond meal and coconut milk powder. Add coconut cream and combine well.
  3. Roll mixture into balls and refrigerate for 10 minutes to set.
  4. Decorate by rolling truffles in chopped pistachios, freeze dried raspberry powder and cacao powder.
  5. Store and enjoy straight from the freezer (this keeps them nice and chewy).
