Suggested Uses for Dr. Cowan's Garden Ashitaba Powder:
- Melt a cup of coconut oil with a cup of raw cacao and a few chunks of cocoa butter (optional); whisk carefully till blended. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract, a teaspoon of Ashitaba powder, and a pinch of salt. Add a tablespoon of maple syrup as well, if you'd like. Pour into ice cube trays and remove when solid. Keep refrigerated. One cube makes a satisfying and healthy snack.
