Artisanal Healthy Chocolate
Posted On Jan 07, 2014
I’m a chocoholic and thus, have done my due diligence on researching the benefits of dark chocolate and have found extensive evidence of its benefits for your heart, brain, and high content of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and theobromine, a feel-good stimulant.
Enter UliMana, a small-batch, artisan chocolatier in the mountains of Asheville, NC. UliMana goes above and beyond to make their chocolate the healthiest possible. It is organic, gluten and dairy free, and they only use raw cacao, not roasted.
UliMana offers an array of flavors such as their cool and refreshing Peppermint Truffle, flavored by the essential oil of organic peppermint. Like spicy chocolate (my personal favorite)? Let one of their Mayan Truffles with organic cayenne and cinnamon melt in your mouth. One of their most popular truffles is rolled in sweet, organic coconut.
UliMana also carries a line of mannas and spreads, such as Chocolate Body Butter, Truffle Butter and my favorite, Maca Manna: rich, flavorful cacao and stimulating maca mixed with agave, coconut oil, cinnamon, vanilla and crunchy, dark cacao nibs. All of UliMana’s products are sweetened with a touch of agave nectar or coconut nectar, complimented with vanilla bean and Celtic Sea Salt.
3-pack sample truffles are only $5.99 and 5 oz. jars of truffles are $15.00.
