Raw Cacao Face Mask

Raw Cacao Face Mask

Raw Cacao Face Mask (basic recipe)
1 Tbsp Incaliving’s cacao powder
2 tsp clay, I used moroccan red clay (good for all skin types, including sensitive skin)
1/2 tsp Incaliving’s Sacha Inchi Oil
1/4 tsp Incaliving’s Black maca powder
1 small mug of steeped and cooled green tea (don’t dump it all in at once, just add a splash at a time until you get a smooth paste)
Directions:
  1. Mix dry ingredients. Add oil and then add cooled green tea 1 tsp at a time until a creamy, pudding like consistency is reached.
  2. Apply in a thick layer over face and relax for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Use an old facecloth (the mask will stain fabric) to remove the mask by holding the cloth under hot running water, squeezing out the water and holding the cloth close to your face, to give it some good steam and warming it up. Careful, not too hot, you don’t want to scald your face.
  4. Then, use warm water to wet the cloth and gently wipe the mask off. Follow with a cool water rinse, pat dry, and apply a few drops of Incaliving’s Sacha Inchi Oil. Enjoy!

Raw Cacao Energy Balls

 

 

15mins total time yields: 12 energy balls

Ingredients

  • ½ cup raw almonds

  • ½ cup raw walnuts

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats

  • 2 Tbsp. Incaliving’s cacao powder

  • ¼ to ½ tsp. salt

  • ¾ cup dates, chopped

  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. water

Instructions

  1. Put the almonds, walnuts, oats, cacao, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until the nuts break down and combine with the other ingredients. The meal should be fine, but retain some texture — you don’t want to make nut butter!
  2. Add the dates and a tablespoon of water and run the food processor until the mixture becomes thick and sticky. You should be able to squeeze a bit of the mixture between your fingers. If it’s too loose and crumbly, add another tablespoon of water and process until everything comes together.
  3. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Scoop pieces of the mixture and roll it into balls between your palms, slightly smaller than the size of a golf ball. Line them up on the baking sheet and place it in the refrigerator to chill for at least an hour, overnight if possible. Store the raw cacao energy balls in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
