Recipes From Paradise: Probiotic Raw Cacao Creme Trifle

April 7, 2017


Most of the time, we find ourselves getting lost in Abigail O’Neill's healthy, tropical Instagram feed just gazing at all of the superfood recipes we wish we could make on a daily basis. To the point that it's got us saying "WE’LL HAVE what she’s having." Well, quite lucky for us , this paradise dweller and raw chocolate cheerleader shared a drool-inducing dish from her cookbook, Model Chocolate —over at and we've got the exclusive deets to share with you!


Although, this is more of an idea than an exact recipe. Adapt it to suit your day-to-day needs. You can use fresh fruits and superfoods of all kinds, even sprinkling layers with seeds, nuts and superfoods such as maqui, acai berry, chia seeds, bee pollen, cacao nibs, raw chocolate-flavored muesli (adds crunch) – whatever you have on hand at the time. I’ve even created a mint-cacao strawberry version! The possibilities are endless. (Pictured trifle uses blueberries and goji berries.)

1 cup fresh raw walnuts, rinsed
