When we travel to hotels we usually make smaller, “daily” batches of Chocolate Bliss. We have found that a 24 ounce water bottle full of Bliss (and ice) will keep one person satisfied and energized for a full-on day of workshops and events (we have successfully proven this in several situations).
Here’s how we make this smaller travel size portion of Chocolate Bliss:
Bring a small portable blender, like this Hamilton Beach blender we use. (If you’re taking your blender in a carry-on bag, make sure the blade is NOT removable from the container. Sometimes they check and confiscate it if it’s removable!)
Pour 8 ounces of water into the blender (seems to be the perfect amount for blending). Add
Blend well (this will take longer than a Vitamix since it’s so small).
Then put this blended mixture in a BPA-free 24oz water bottles and fill it up with water to about the 20 ounce mark and the rest with ice to chill it and help keep it cold all day long (adding more ice as the day progresses and you drink down the Bliss). The Bliss will be a little extra chocolatey at the beginning of the day and just right by the end of the day as the ice melts and you continue to add more ice.
If you like to add more superfoods to your Bliss, like our Personal Bliss Recipe, the ratios are as follows:
1 Tbsp added superfood in a 1 gallon Bliss = 1/2 tsp in the 24 oz travel size Bliss
1 tsp added superfood in a 1 gallon Bliss = heaping 1/8 tsp in the 24 oz travel size Bliss
I just got these new glass milk bottles in the half gallon and pint size and I LOVE them! They are great for containing my chocolate bliss, hemp milk, and goji lemonade … and any other liquids you like to keep in your fridge.
They come with a snap top lid that’s held up really well – for a good month of use already. I bought extra lids just in case, but haven’t needed to change them out yet. Do make sure the lid is on well before you shake the bottle (speaking from experience).
I use 2 of the half gallon size milk bottles for my gallon of bliss. I just fill both containers up with about half of the bliss mixture from my blender (eye-balling it) and then top them off with water. The half gallon size is great because it has an easy grip on the side of the bottle and fits really easily in the fridge. The bottles are also super easy to clean with a quick rinse or popping them in the dish washer.
Here’s our client Ann White describing her experience of using Chocolate Bliss mixed with our pristine raw Guarana and Yerba Matte to end her coffee addiction in one day while maintaining her energy and focus.
To stop your own caffeine addictions, I suggest you add 1 Tbsp Guarana and 1 tsp of Yerba Matte to 1 gallon of Chocolate Bliss. Drink 8 ounces of this Bliss at a time – or as Ann says, sip on it over the course of the day.
Thanks to Rick the Health Sleuth for this guest posting about his use of Chocolate Bliss as a High Raw, Vegan Diet Staple. It’s nice to know there are many of us in cyber-land and the real world putting our minds, hearts, buying power and mouths into action to create healthy lives and a healthier planet. Read on for Rick’s story of how he found Bliss in his transition to a raw food diet. And be sure to subscribe to his Health Sleuth Blog for frequent awesome posts about the truth behind our nutrition, food supplies and even more health-related topics. Rick Rawks!

For the most part, not a single day goes by without someone asking me “What does a high-raw foodist eat besides salads?” I always appreciate that question when it’s coming from someone who is truly curious and open-minded. However, when the question is posed in a condescending or ignorant tone, it’s hard to respond in a courteous way. It is truly a shame that the ignorance levels about nutrition/health/wellness in this country have reached these astronomical proportions. The disinformation campaigns launched by the megacorporations over the years have led to a completely uneducated populous regarding what they are truly ingesting on a daily basis.
This is a compilation of several Superfood Dinner nights where I talked about how to use RAW Guarana and RAW Yerba Matte in your Chocolate Bliss in order to stop needing coffee or caffeine and lose even more weight.
These raw superfoods are NOT the same as a guarana or yerba matte tea that you might find in a grocery store. When they are in this pristine, raw state they are awesome, powerful adaptogenics without any of the icky side-effects you might get with the cooked versions.
Learn all about these superfoods, how to use them, and how they compare with the Rain Forest Rush superfood mix in this video.
And then call or email if you have any questions or want a small sample in your next order of Chocolate Bliss so you can do your own experiment with your natural temperament.
