I received my parcel in the mail the other day of a number of favorite things and a couple of new items. Yacon is one of the new things I have tired.
Yacon is a fruit from Peru which has been dried. it is very sweet, but is very low glycemic and suitable for those who suffer with diabetics or sugar intolerance. I meant to get the powder to add to my chocolate pie recipe, but got the slices by mistake. I made up a trail mix which is so good I found it hard to put down.
I also ordered some hemp protein powder to start adding to my fruit smoothies to make them more of a complete meal in the morning.
It was exciting to get all sorts of things like chia seeds, cacao nibs, cacao powder, maca powder, goji berries and Yacon slices...
So here is a close up of my little bowl of mix that I have been snacking on. I mixed some raw cashews, raw pumpkin seeds, yacon slices, goji berries, cacao nibs and some chia seeds..
I can't believe how the nuts and fruit make the cacao nibs taste just like chocolate. on their oun they are bitter, but mixed like this it tastes great !!
