Travel Size Chocolate Bliss Recipe

thermosWhen we travel to hotels we usually make smaller, “daily” batches of Chocolate Bliss.  We have found that an 18 ounce thermos 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

3.75 Tbsp (1.75 oz) of Chocolate Bliss

3 Tbsp (1.5 oz) of Vanilla Agave Nectar

Blend well (this will take longer than a Vitamix since it’s so small).

Then  put this blended mixture in a 18 oz Thermos and fill it up with water, leaving about 2 inches room for ice.  Add 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 18 oz travel size Bliss
1 tsp added superfood in a 1 gallon Bliss = heaping 1/8 tsp in the 18 oz travel size Bliss

For us that means we add 1/2 tsp each of Guarana, Bee Pollen, and Tocos and 1/8 tsp Yerba Matte to our travel size Bliss.

Happy Trails!


Chocolate Bliss Variations from David Favor (the creator)

Just got this email from David Favor and thought you might be interested in his Chocolate Bliss variations too:


My primary food has been Chocolate Bliss since March 2004.

And I change it up a bit. Here are some of our house favorite variations.

For the banana variations, blend well. And adding extra banana in an ice cream machine makes some seriously decadent, frozen goodness.

1) Add a drop of essential oil to a glass. Great experiments – Orange, Frankincense, Rose.

2) Add a splash of Black Cherry, Pomegranate or other fruit juice.

3) Add a drop of Orange + splash of Black Cherry. This is one of my favorites.

4) 2 Cups liquid Chocolate Bliss + banana + 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil + 1 Cup Blueberries.

5) 2 Cups liquid Chocolate Bliss + banana + 1/2 Cup or more fresh Durian. Way decadent!

6) Ice-ify your Chocolate Bliss. Put your Gallon ‘o Bliss in the freezer till ice crystals just start to form.

7) Chai-ify your Chocolate Bliss. Add 1/8t+ of one or more cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg.

Send your favorite Chocolate Bliss variation to help at and I’ll give your recipe a taste test. Use a subject line with My Favorite Chocolate Bliss Recipe.

Enjoy your most divinely inspired day ever!

Our Personal Chocolate Bliss Recipe

(Visit Loving Superfoods for the original Chocolate Bliss recipes)

1 Gallon of Chocolate Bliss (Our Personal Recipe)

3 Cups pure water

1 Cup Vanilla Agave Nectar

1.25 Cups Chocolate Bliss mix

1 Tbsp Bee Pollen

1 Tbsp Tocotrienols
Creates a creamier, frothier bliss – more like milk chocolate and high in natural vitamin E, CoQ10 and Glutathione

1 Tbsp Pristine Guarana
An adaptogenic that gives your bliss a mocha-like flavor and gives you more energy and focus

1 tsp Pristine Yerba Matte
An adaptogenic that tastes a little like green tea and give you more blissful state of awareness and relaxation

1 Tbsp Vitamineral Green
For adding many superfood greens to your diet while still preserving the chocolatey goodness taste

Blend until smooth (works best in a Vita-Mix or other high powered blender), pour into a gallon-sized sealable plastic container, and then fill the rest up with pure water. Shake well, and then chill.

Here’s a helpful hint: Add the Vanilla Agave Nectar right after the water – that way you can use the measuring marks on your blender (we have a VitaMix) rather than dirtying an extra measuring cup.
