We love the chocolate flavour, but then we are biased as it uses our wonderful Ecuador Cocoa Mass. Created by chef, Johnny Melican. His passion for good, healthy food has driven him to create an ice cream using a unique process only used by Johnny. And after many years of development you too can now taste his fabulous vegan ice-cream. Also comes in Vanilla and Honeycomb flavours. @johnnysdairyfreeicecream
A member of @VeganForum asked this week for a vegan post cyclying recovery drink.
Try making one with Oatmilk and Mortimer Chocolate.
There have been several research papers on the benefits of drinking chocolate milk after exercise, such as running, cycling and rugby playing.
The Benefits of Chocolate milk:
1.A natural source of high-quality protein to build lean muscle.
2.The right carbohydrate-to-protein ratio scientifically shown to refuel and rebuild exhausted muscles.
A rich source of antioxidants.
4.Vitamin A to support a healthy immune system and normal vision.
5.Electrolytes including calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium to help replenish what’s lost in sweat.
6.B vitamins for energy.
7.Fluids to rehydrate.
8.Calcium, vitamin D, phosphorus, protein and potassium to build and maintain strong bones and help reduce the risk for stress fractures.
Here at Mortimer Chocolate, we use a natural cacao powder to make our chocolate drinks. Natural cacoa powder is high in antioxidants, being one of the richest sources of the antioxidant, flavanol. Most cocoa powders in the UK are alkalised, via the Dutch process which destroys some of these antioxidants. So our drinks are perfect for using as post training recovery chocolate drinks.
Our Salted Caramel Drinking Chocolate is in the finals of the Quality Food Awards – Tea and other Hot Beverages category. We are up against Morrisons and Asda, so no pressure!
As part of the awards we were invited along to the CO OP Headquarters in Manchester to sample to their staff and present to their buyers. We had such wonderfully positive feedback. Thank you to @coopuk and @QualFoodAwards.
Hot Chocolate Finals. Our West African Chocolate is being judged today in the finals of the @deliciousmag Produce Awards. Head judge is #GBBO Prue Leith. Good job it is vegan as it is #VeganWeek on @BritishBakeOff.
