Is Chocolate Bliss a meal replacement, a meal, a snack or what?
Chocolate Bliss can be used as a meal replacement or as a snack. We use it as breakfast daily and then mixed in with other raw food snacks throughout the day, followed by a healthy cooked meal at the end of the day.
Chocolate Bliss seems like it would be ideal for lunch, since I often can’t get away. How do you recommend taking it to work and keeping it cold?
We have perfected the art of traveling with Chocolate Bliss using a thermos and some ice cubes. Read our blog posting Traveling with Chocolate Bliss to find out the specific thermos and proportions we use.
How long will a 1 lb jar of Chocolate Bliss last most people?
Most people drink 1-2 8 ounce glasses of Chocolate Bliss a day. That means they will drink up to a gallon of Chocolate Bliss in a week. A 1 lb jar makes between 3-4 gallons of Chocolate Bliss (depending on how chocolatey you like it). That means using a little more than 1 jar a month, or about 4 jars over 3 months.
Chocolate Bliss seems expensive for a 1 lb jar. What is the breakdown of the cost per 8 oz. serving?
Based on our recipe of 1.25 Cups of Chocolate Bliss and 1 Cup of Vanilla Agave Nectar in one gallon of Chocolate Bliss, an 8 ounce service of Chocolate Bliss costs $1.43. We think that's an excellent price for such a high quality, nutrient rich food that upgrades health so quickly and easily.
What blender do you recommend for making Chocolate Bliss? Will a regular kitchen blender work good enough?
We recommend the Vitamix blender for Chocolate Bliss and all of our raw recipes. It's a champ!
We also use a little Hamilton Beach blender when we travel and it works just fine for making Chocolate Bliss on the road. For less powerful blenders like this and a regular kitchen blender you may need to use a little less water when making your Bliss and pulse it a few more times so that the hemp seeds get nice and creamy.
How long do I have to drink Chocolate Bliss before I will notice any changes?
It depends on the person. Melissa noticed a huge difference with her first sips: her brain fog cleared and she felt energized. She also stopped drinking her morning cup of coffee immediately. We both lost weight (without working out) and inches around our waist line within 1-2 months.
How quickly you notice changes, and what changes you notice, will depend on how much water you drink with your Chocolate Bliss, what else you eat in your diet, what you remove from your diet, and what physical activities you do.
If there are specific changes you desire (like body conditions you want to overcome), please contact us for a superfood consultation so we can advise you on what additional superfoods or lifestyle upgrades would help you meet your goals.
There are a lot of ingredients in Chocolate Bliss I’ve never heard of. Is it going to taste weird? What does it taste like?
Most people think Chocolate Bliss tastes like a delicious chocolate milk (especially when prepared using our recipes). All of the ingredients are pristine whole foods, so there is never any chemical aftertaste. Many of the ingredients are slightly medicinal foods, so they can be bitter on their own, which is why we always add some kind of sweetener to the powdered mix.
What if the Chocolate Bliss tastes too sweet for me?
You can customize how you make your own Chocolate Bliss drink. Use less sweetener or a different sweetener. For example, Palm Sugar tastes less sweet than Vanilla Agave Nectar.
Can I add greens to my Chocolate Bliss and still have it taste good? What do you recommend?
Yes! Chocolate Bliss is an excellent way of disguising the taste of greens. In small enough amounts the chocolate flavor of bliss will overpower any green aftertaste. We recommend using 1 Tbsp of Vitamineral Green in 1 gallon of Chocolate Bliss. You might be able to get away with more than that, but most people won't notice the flavor difference at that ratio.
I’m trying to cut out sugar. Do I have to use a sweetener with Chocolate Bliss?
Many of the ingredients of Chocolate Bliss are slightly medicinal foods, so they can be bitter on their own, which is why we always add some kind of sweetener to the powdered mix. You can use any sweetener you like, and at any amount you like, but unless you love bitter dark chocolate, you'll probably want some kind of sweetener.
What sweeteners work best?
We love the Vanilla Agave Nectar with Chocolate Bliss because it's low glycemic and the vanilla adds a rich smoothness to the taste. We also enjoy using honey and a mix of Palm Sugar and honey (the Palm Sugar is not as sweet as honey or agave).
Some customers have also used dates, stevia, xylitol, bananas and maple syrup.
What sweeteners don’t you recommend?
We do NOT recommend any agave besides the Vanilla Agave Nectar. Most agaves on the market are processed with high fructose corn syrup or have other quality issues. We've tried several and had headaches and stomach aches from them. Read our blog posting about Agave Quality.
How long will the blended Chocolate Bliss drink keep in the refrigerator?
Chocolate Bliss blended with water (and a sweetener) will stay good in the fridge for 1 week. You'll know if it has passed its prime because it will smell and taste a little off.
Chocolate Bliss will settle as it sits. Simply shake it well before your pour and drink.
What is the best way to store the powdered Chocolate Bliss mix?
Store the Choclate Bliss powder in the fridge or freezer. The hemp seeds and tocotrienols in Chocolate Bliss have natural oils in them. Your Chocolate Bliss powder will stay fresh longer if you keep it in a dark, cool place.
How long can the powdered Chocolate Bliss mix be stored?
Kept in the fridge or freezer the Chocolate Bliss powder should be good for a year or more.
How does Chocolate Bliss work on road trips? Any tips and tricks?
We love Chocolate Bliss for road trips! We use our personal Chocolate Bliss recipe that has guarana and yerba matte in it. Whoever's driving has about a 4 ounce swig of Chocolate Bliss from the thermos and is fully energized for driving. Since the superfoods are adaptogenics it's easy to take a nap while the other person is driving.
We've done 36 hour road trips non-stop with 2 drivers and Chocolate Bliss and Dan has done 24 hour road trips with Chocolate Bliss and one rest-stop nap. In all our road trips with Chocolate Bliss we've always felt alert for driving without being jittery or too amped up to sleep when it's time to sleep.
To successfully road trip with Chocolate Bliss, do NOT add greens to the drink and keep it cold in a thermos with some ice, refilling the ice as it melts.
Can I use Chocolate Bliss if I’m pregnant or nursing?
Yes, David Favor designed Chocolate Bliss as a raw food meal for pregnant and nursing mothers. The densely nutritious superfoods provide excellent nourishment for mothers. However, it is NOT recommended to add the high-powered superfoods like Guarana and Yerba Matte.
I'm gluten intolerant. Can I use Chocolate Bliss?
Yes, Chocolate Bliss is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and delicious!
I work out a lot and feel like I need more protein than is in the Chocolate Bliss. Do you recommend anything I could add to the Chocolate Bliss?
We recommend adding the Sun Warrior Protein Powder, more Hemp Seeds, and/or Coconut Oil to the Chocolate Bliss mix for times when you are more physically active.
I’m really wanting to get off of Coffee. Can Chocolate Bliss help? What do you recommend?
Yes, Chocolate Bliss can help. Melissa and others have successfully stopped drinking coffee (and other caffeine sources) by adding Chocolate Bliss into their diets.
If you're a big coffee drinker, we recommend adding Guarana and Yerba Matte to your Chocolate Bliss in order to have the high-powered energy you're accostomed to, without the jitters or other side-effects of caffeine.
