A quick and nutrient-packed summertime snack that’s great for vata and kapha. Cacao beans are full of nutrients and antioxidants, and support the circulatory system and lower cholesterol. The bean is also known to enhance your mood, improve your focus and suppress a cough! Cacao is stimulating (can increase vata), heating (increasing pitta) and can be fattening (increasing kapha) if taken in excess, but delicious in moderation.
1/2 cup organic or local blueberries (tridoshic)
2 tbsps raw cacao nibs
1 tbsp hemp seeds (kapha can omit)
Throw together in a bowl and enjoy with a spoon.
