Ask the Chef: Do you have any ideas for superfood Valentine's Day gifts?

Posted by Julie Morris, Navitas Organics Executive Chef on Feb 10, 2017 12:30:00 AM


Thanks to the conveniences of modern life, many of us have our Valentines's Day routine down to a science (i.e. flower delivery, a box of chocolate, a card, etc) and that's not necessarily a good thing. While any gift is always appreciated, romantic gestures are really at their best when they're unique, which is why a surprising number of people are returning to the power of handmade.The rich expression of time-spent and personal touch goes far beyond anything money can buy - and few things are simpler to create and more appreciated than home-crafted edible treats. Plus, by adding functional superfoods, you can even specifically formulate your giftable goodies to support feelings of love and attraction. Talk about a win-win!

Here are some ideas of superfood-infused treats to create at home, all in the name of love.

Truffles - Boxed truffles really can't even come close to the specialness of your own superfood creations. What's more, making truffles is surprisingly easy and fun! Composed of euphoria-enhancing cacao, and enriched with all kinds of beneficial add-ins like circulation-promoting acai or pomegranate, you can get extremely inventive with your personal truffles and what you choose to tuck inside. Try these Acai Berry Truffles to get started.

Boxed Caramels - For the caramel lover, you can make your favorite recipe much healthier by using coconut sugar in the place of cane sugar (thereby reducing the glycemic content). Then, boost your recipe further by swirling in a little bit of libido-boosting maca, which adds a butterscotch undertone in addition to being a known aphrodisiac. And for an even more decadent twist, try these other-worldly bonbons filled with salted caramel - one of my personal go-to recipes.

Raw Chocolate - When it comes to Valentine's Day, chocolate really is king, and raw chocolate takes this tradition to a whole new level of flavor and health benefits. Loaded with invigorating antioxidants and minerals, you can create your own chocolate confections through using cacao, and decorate with highlights of additional superfoods like brain-boosting hemp seeds or romantic dried flowers (or, simply use the molten chocolate to dip fresh strawberries in!). Try this easy raw chocolate recipe as a base and get creative!

Mousse - Few things are as sexy as a chocolate mousse! And thanks to sneakily healthy recipes that feature cacao and healthy plant-based fats, this dessert is a feel-good guarantee. Make enough for two!

Superfood Trail Mix - For a gift that keeps on giving, create a personalized bag of superfood-enriched trail mix to satisfy a health-enthusiast partner. For a romantic blend, combine Navitas Naturals Maca Cashews (a delicious way to enjoy maca!), Goji Berries, Mulberries, Sweet Cacao Nibs, and pecans.
