This Herbal Chocolate Dipped Fruit recipe will:
- protect your DNA from environmental toxins (many of the herbs are detoxifying and cell-protective in nature)
- unleash the better side of your genetics – tap into your greatest physical + emotional potential
- insure your health beyond what traditional health insurance could ever possibly offer
- give you resilience to stressful situations so you’re not bogged down by depleted energy dealing with life
You only need to buy 2 items to make this recipe – I’ve kept it super simple for you!
1) Fresh organic ripe fruit (preferably from your local farmer’s market for berries, and if you use bananas please make sure they’re super ripe!)
2) 1-4 Chocolate Goldies (you can use more; this is a starting amount and what I used to make the recipe in pictures shown)
1) Melt 4 Chocolate Goldies at a low temperature in the oven or hot water bath (in a bowl that’s within a bigger bowl of hot water) on top of the stove (each bar is 1 ounce so you’re melting 4 ounces total).
2) Chop your fresh fruit into bite-size pieces, place together on a plate for easy quick access, and get your natural wood / bamboo tongs & a spoon ready for action.
1) With the melted chocolate in a bowl next to your plate of organic fruit, pick up a piece of fruit with the tongs, scoop a spoonful of the chocolate and pour over the fruit, let the excess drip off, and gently place on a separate clean plate.
2) Repeat until all fruit is used (don’t forget to taste test!)
The Chocolate Goldies are a TEMPERED perfected superfood chocolate bar allowing your chocolate to naturally harden within minutes of being dipped with fruit. Once all fruit has been dipped or drenched, serve and enjoy as is, or pop in the fridge to relish later. YUM!!
The question may arise if you *have* to use the Chocolate Goldies – or can you just melt some bitter cacao paste, add some dried herbal powders, and call it good? My answer is that sure you can do anything you want, but not if you want supremely silky smooth (stone ground), truly aphrodisiac style, endocrine-supporting (hormone-balancing) cacao alchemy that will activate your inner power, ability to give and receive love, and inspire you to want more for yourself.
I’ve meticulously formulated the Herbal Harmony flavor that you’ll use for this recipe and it goes way beyond just adding a tonic herbal powder blend (Longevity in a Bottle) to a chocolate bar. Shoot for the stars you guys and you’ll zoom right past them IF you raise your standards and align with the most potent high integrity nutrition that is 100% recognized by your body as real food.
Prioritize your health & happiness, today… right now! What could be more fun or delicious than whipping up a quick batch of these chocolate dipped fruits and enjoying them as a treat with friends? You and everyone you make these for will adore them not only because they are a quick raw dessert recipe to make, but because you get your infusion of 40 different adaptogenic tonic herbs in every single bite. You don’t need to know how to formulate tonics or how to synergize herbs for maximum potency and absorption. I’ve done this complex step for you!
Have you made any recipes using the Chocolate Goldies? If so, we’d love to hear what you’ve done with them! Post a comment below and share how herbal infused healthy desserts have played a key role in helping you eat better as part of your overall wellness strategy.
Chocolate is the most unifying food. Infused with Longevity in a Bottle (our 40 ingredient blend of superfoods & herbal extracts) takes it beyond comprehension. You *can* have your cake and eat it too… your future self will thank you for it! HIGH LEVEL NUTRITION is where it’s at.
Before I go into the specific top herbs that beautify your skin in 30 days, there is an idea I want to express to you that is more important than any 1 herb: This idea is that:
Herbs are essential for one’s health. Period.
Even a most wholesome organic modern western diet will skimp on the herbs, or have herbs in small doses for flavoring only. You can take whatever nutritional path you are on, and just ADD HERBS IN! Herbs should have a BIG section in your food pyramid.
The herbs to ‘go to first’ are the tonic herbs which are adaptogenic herbs that tonify the body, are safe for daily use with no side effects, and can be used ongoingly for a lifetime of cumulative benefits.
Here are the top 8 tonic herbs that when taken internally immediately and cumulatively do wonders for nourishing and beautifying the skin and balancing skin conditions:
1. Schisandra Berry
Schisandra Berry (Schisandra chinensis), also Schizandra, the “5-flavor berry,” is the most well-rounded-in-effect herb ever. Those 5 flavors (sour/astringent, sweet, bitter, salty, spicy/pungent,) correspond to a wide range of nutrients and effects on the organs of the body. Schisandra’s dominant sour and astringent flavor boosts liver cleansing and thus skin radiance because they are so closely related. Astringency locks in moisture for the skin and helps your body assimilate all other nutrition consumed with schisandra. A richly-red high antioxidant food and herb to be taken daily for beauty through the ages.
Horsetail (Equisetum arvense, Equisetum telmateia, and some other species of the Equisetum genus) is one of the highest bio-available-silica substances ever. And, silica is THE BEAUTY AND YOUTH MINERAL. An extract of a young horsetail plant gives the body the free silica it needs to regenerate tissue and make it soft, supple and strong. Silica is one of the main co-factor nutrients required in bone growth. The more organic silica you can get in your body the more your skin will be baby soft.
3. Goji Berry
A handful of delicious red-orange goji berries (Lycium barbarum and Lycium chinense) or a couple doses of goji berry extract or tea a day is a tradition going back eons to create a youthening effect in the partaker. A super-antioxidant, carotenoid-rich, polysaccharide-laden, flavonoid-dense superfood, goji does wonders for your inner and outer body. It’s not “just a berry.” Try them daily and experience the glow.
Eucommia (Eucommia ulmoides) bark is rich in a rubber/latex substance. An extract of this tissue, joint and skeletal repairing material promotes inner health and beauty and helps youthen the skin. An active constituent in Eucommia, aucubin, has been shown to protect the skin against UV radiation and helps prevent photo-aging.
Use prepared (not raw) rehmannia (Rehmannia glutinosa) root extract for a massive revitalization of the kidneys and nourishment of the liver and blood. When the kidneys (your body’s battery packs), liver and blood are running strong, guess what happens: the skin beautifies with its full natural color and glow.
6. Red Asparagus Root
Completely different from the asparagus vegetable, Red Asparagus Root is the ancient Taoist tonic herb used by spiritual seekers for generations to produce an open-hearted feeling of levity above the mundane. It cools, moistens and beautifies the skin and recharges the adrenals and sexual functions.
Prepared (not raw, just like with rehmannia the raw is not as nourishing) He Shou Wu (Polygonum multiflorum) has been used by tens of millions of people in Asia to nurture beautiful colorful hair. It deeply nourishes and cleanses the organs (which always leads to nourishing and cleansing of the skin). It greatly increases superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity. SOD is a powerful antioxidant (free radical scavenger), demonstrated to have powerful anti-aging benefits in humans.
8. Pearl: Hydrolyzed Pearl extract has always been considered the quintessential beauty herb for women (and for men as far as I’m concerned.) It is rich in amino acids and trace minerals which nurture the delicate nuances of fantastic skin. Pearl is a top Chinese beauty herb that uplifts the spirit and is the only form of calcium carbonate one should ever take (other forms are mined chalk). Although not a vegan product, many plant-based fooders love to add in pearl to their lifestyle as a strategic beauty food that calms the mind and fills in nutritional gaps. It can be mixed with coconut oil or an organic high quality body butter to make outstanding homemade edible skincare.
Bonus Herb #9: I like to add this one in as a bonus, but many Russian medicinal mushroom researchers would call this the #1 herb for skin health and whole body vitality: Chaga mushroom sclerotia. Revered for its incredible antioxidant and melanin (think skin pigment and hormone balance) content, this immune strengthening adaptogen has been consumed for eons by humans. In a world of radioactive pollution and radiation from the sun, Chaga is the ultimate protective. Combined with the herbs listed above, we have the ability to repair and tighten up skin. Chaga is great at fighting back at moles, fungal rashes and other mutagenic skin occurrences.

My Raw Superfood Pumpkin Pie recipe was created to do 3 fold:
1. Taste absolutely knock-your-toe-socks-off incredible! (Such a BRIGHT pumpkin flavor and classic pastry-like crust…for a raw style recipe.)
2. Contain Superfoods and Tonic Herbs which means that the more of this dessert you eat, the more therapeutic concentrations of minerals, nutrients and stress-reversing adaptogens you get! These grounding, nerve-calming substances go so well with holiday spice flavors and will allow your body to reverberate with holiday season cheer.
3. Be a lower glycemic dessert! (The raw pumpkin pulp is said to be medium glycemic, but all other ingredients have very low sugar options.
Make my pie to top off an autumn dinner with friends, family, your date, or your very own fly self!
NOTE: This recipe makes a 6″ pie. Double to make an 8″ pie or triple to make a big 10″ pie.
First, make the crust:
2 cups organic macadamia nuts
2 1/4 tablespoons Peruvian sweet potato powder (This delicious powder is available at many Whole Foods Markets and online) or lucuma powder
1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (glycerin, maple sugar, sun-dried cane juice, honey, birch xylitol, organic erythritol, etc.)
2 teaspoons organic ghee and/or organic raw cacao butter and/or grass-fed butter
2 teaspoons Longevity Power Maca Bliss
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Blend in a food processor for about a minute until it becomes a paste-like consistency. DON’T over blend into a soft butter. Mold the “dough” into a 6″ pie pan (or a small plate will do just find) and make the rim tall and rippled using you fingers. Set aside and then make the pumpkin cream:
3 cups diced organic pumpkin (cut a pumpkin in half, scoop out the inside with a large spoon and slice off the skin with a knife, then chop the inner flesh into cubes and pack into 3 cups)
1/2 cup young coconut meat or 1/3 cup Native Forest Classic Coconut Milk
2 tablespoons sweetener of choice (glycerin, maple sugar, sun-dried cane juice, honey, birch xylitol, organic erythritol, etc.)
2 teaspoons organic macadamia nut butter (you can always make this yourself by putting macadamia nuts in the food processor for several minutes)
1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder or more sweetener of choice, to taste
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (freshly micro-planed/zest-gratered sticks or powder) Note: Organic True Ceylon cinnamon is considered more flavorful and medicinal than Cassia cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
2 small pinches freshly ground organic nutmeg (It is always best to buy dried whole herbs and grind them yourself using a micro-plane/zester, especially with the delicate nutmeg nuance)
2 small pinches ground vanilla bean
small pinch freshly crushed organic clove bud (Buy dried whole cloves and take the bud (round part) off of the stem (twiggy part), grind it with your fingers and use about half the bud in this recipe)
optional: 1 crushed organic allspice seed
optional: 1 small pinch micro-planed fresh organic ginger or 2 small pinches organic ginger powder
Blend on high in a high speed blender using a push-rod to keep the ingredients caught in the blade. Continue blending for at least 3 minutes until warm and creamy. Spatula out the entire pumpkin cream recipe into the pie crust. Since it is warm, you may serve immediately or place in the dehydrator for up to several hours. Garnish with goji berries or sprinkles of cinnamon and ground vanilla bean.
Have the best holiday dessert experience ever! I just enjoyed a pre-Halloween dining experience with my girl Bethanne at our own home, and my pumpkin pie was the keynote plate!

Hi. Christian Bates here, founder of Longevity Power. It’s time to show you my latest in superfood creations: My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream which features some ancient foods to help you succeed at your allergy free high nutrition living so that you can make your health and fitness goals come true!
You’ll notice in the title that I did not say ‘Dairy Free.’ Keep an open mind as I explain. I’m about to introduce to you something that is neither vegan, nor raw. Okay, it’s an all out cooked animal product.
I know, I know… you’re thinking “Christian…my bro… I’m into adding in more raw plant foods into my life, not more cooked animal foods. You must be trippin.’ ”
Let me explain. I’m into balance, not labeling myself (but I am into labels on food products and I am for labeling of GMOs!); I love adding in the very best from every tradition. I’m into the cleansing aspects of hardcore raw vegan approaches, but several years (yep, I was a raw vegan for that long) of avoiding animal products just starts to feel bad. The body aches for what it needs.
According to a several thousand year old vegetarian/mostly vegetarian tradition practiced by billions of people called Ayurveda, this cooked animal fat is considered life itself. Whoa! It’s called Ghee. And it’s what the Ayurvedic doctor ordered.
For all the people who aren’t ready to try ghee, I won’t be pushy. I’m going to give you strategic and tasty options to make this ice cream a vegan/dairy free one, but I also invite (gently persuade) you to try an amazing ingredient which is the only milk product I regularly ‘do’ at this time (or maybe will ever do because all other forms of dairy except this one give me a mucus reaction): Ghee.
Ghee is the traditional Ayurvedic clarified butter. It’s pure butter oil with nearly 100% of the casein, lactose, milk solids and water removed. It’s made from organic grass-fed cow butter. Butter is 80% oil, 20% milk. Ghee is 100% oil, 0% milk. It’s pure essential fats – like coconut oil or cacao butter, but it’s an animal product and is high in CLA (Conjugated linoleic acids), a category of fatty acids that has been shown to have anticancer properties, strengthen immune function, and help the human body healthfully burn fat and healthfully reduce body fat deposits.
And yet it’s not raw. Ghee is made by cooking butter just above 200*F to coax the milk solids to separate off, leaving the pure butter oil. This process gives ghee a most enjoyable butterscotch flavor (before artificial flavors, butterscotch flavor was literally made from scorching butter, or ‘butter-scorch’.)
So why is ghee so fabulously healthy even though it is cooked? Well it’s just like coconut oil, which is highly resistant to oxidation from heat. Perhaps you have heard that coconut oil is consider the healthiest oil with which to cook. Well, I put coconut oil in 2nd place. Ghee is the most healthful to cook with and has an even higher smoking temperature. It’s healthy saturated fat content protects it from oxidation during heat. But, like all oils, ghee should be kept in glass, away from plastic and away from direct sunlight and be used as fresh as possible for the most health benefits.
I recommend Ancient Organics Ghee. These guys rock, are local to me (as is the farm they get their butter from), and obey the Ayurvedic details when they make the ghee (like only making it during the full or waxing moons.)
My Off the Hook Superfood Ghee Ice Cream Recipe tastes like vanilla butterscotch carmel with a hint of foresty goodness from all the adrenal-restoring tonic herbs in it.
Feel free to double this recipe.
Blend in blender on medium-high for at least 1 minute until very warm (so that the fats emulsify):
2 1/2 tablespoon ghee (or warm coconut oil or melted cacao butter, but ghee will give it the best ice cream flavor and texture without the ice cream allergens)
1 1/2 tablespoon non-GMO lecithin powder
1/2 can (7 oz) BPA-free canned full-fat organic coconut milk (Native Forest Organic Classic Coconut Milk is great)
1 free-range organic egg yolk or additional 1 teaspoon non-GNO lecithin powder (if you choose egg yolk, you are deciding for yourself how to handle raw egg yolk so use your very best judgement)
Then add and blend on high for 20 seconds:
2 tablespoons non-GMO glycerin (this is really low glycemic amazing stuff!) or sweetener of choice (honey, etc.)
1 1/2 tablespoons spring water
1 teaspoon Maca Bliss
1 teaspoon Goji Joy
1 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder
1/2 teaspoon Prepared He Shou Wu extract powder
1/2 teaspoon ground vanilla bean
1/4 teaspoon KAL stevia extract powder (use less if you are sensitive to stevia, use a touch more if you love stevia!)
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
OPTIONAL: 1 teaspoon Longevity Spirulina (best tasting spirulina!)
Pour into an ice cream maker, or into a bowl to set for a few hours in the freezer. Scoop into a small serving bowl and drizzle with Edible Goddess Chocolate Gold (best chocolate sauce ever!) or my very low glycemic butterscotch-caramel sauce:
Butterscotch-Caramel Sauce Recipe
Stir until smooth in a small bowl using a small silicon spatula. Feel free to double or triple recipe:
1 tablespoon non-GMO glycerin (the zero-glycemic option) or any wholesome liquid sweetener of choice
1/2 teaspoon ghee or warm coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon LEVITY Red Asparagus Root Extract Powder
1 pinch KAL stevia extract powder, to taste
