Last week we had a visit from a new supplier “Balanced Nature” and agreed to trial two of their products, Kombucha and Raw Chocolate.
Well, we were absolutely blown away, the Chocolate, which comes in two sizes and two flavours is hand-made from Organic, raw unroasted Cacao beans. It is sweetened with Coconut Sugar and a dash of Raw Cacao butter is added, that’s just three ingredients to make their wonderful “Intense Dark” chocolate.
Their “Dark with Maca” contains both Black and Red Maca, which legend has it, Incan warriors used to consume before battle to increase their prowess.
Kombucha is a light, slightly fizzy and tart refreshing healthy drink that is made from fermenting Green Tea. As it is a naturally fermented food, it is full of natural probiotics which research shows is beneficial for the digestion * **
With the Organic Soil Association and Vegan stamps of approval, it is naturally gluten and dairy free, in a recyclable glass bottle it’s lid is BPA-free.
