Alkaline Snack Recipe: Mexican Chocolate Cubes

Oh boy these are a winner.  Quick to make, delicious, alkaline, anti-inflammatory and packed with essential nutrients, the Mini Mexican Chocolate Cubes are a big hit in our house.

We all have a desire for sweets at some point, no matter how healthy your diet is.  For the majority of people, this results in reaching for sugary, processed snacks that, are not only hugely acid-forming, but also unbalance our hormones, digestion, liver and more.

These little cubes are the answer!

The Health Powerhouses in Every Cube:

Cacao Powder: A fantastic source of alkalinity and antioxidants, cacao fights free radicals in the body. It’s rich in flavonoids which have been associated with various health benefits, including improved heart health, brain health and more.  Cacao also contains:

  • Magnesium: Cacao is one of the top dietary sources of magnesium, which is essential for muscle function, nerve function, bone health, and energy production.
  • Iron: Raw cacao is a plant-based source of non-heme iron. Iron is crucial for red blood cell formation and oxygen transportation in the body.
  • Zinc: This mineral plays a vital role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, and DNA synthesis.
  • Calcium: While most commonly associated with dairy products, cacao is also a source of calcium, which is vital for bone health.
  • Copper: This trace mineral is essential for the formation of red blood cells, energy production, and the maintenance of nerve cells.
  • Manganese: Manganese is involved in bone formation, blood clotting, and reducing inflammation.
  • Potassium: An essential mineral that helps regulate fluid balance, muscle contractions, and nerve signals.
  • Phosphorus: Works with calcium to build and maintain strong bones and teeth and plays a role in energy production.
  • Sulfur: Sulfur is associated with healthy skin, nails, and hair.

Chili Powder: Capsaicin, the compound that gives chili its heat, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties. It can help reduce pain and inflammation, making these cubes a sweet way to soothe your body.

Cinnamon & Nutmeg: These aromatic spices are not just for flavor. Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties and can help regulate blood sugar, while nutmeg boasts small amounts of fiber, numerous B vitamins, and various minerals.

Cacao Butter: Provides healthy fats, which are essential for our body’s cellular functions. It also aids in increasing the absorption of certain vitamins.

Living Alkaline and the Importance of Bulk Prep:

One of the biggest challenges of staying true to an alkaline life is the ease of access to compliant snacks, especially when on-the-go. By preparing healthy treats in bulk, you not only ensure that you’re consuming snacks that align with your dietary goals, but you also reduce the temptation to reach for less nutritious options. It makes living alkaline and staying on track more feasible and enjoyable.

These are the answer.  You can make them and freeze in bulk, and even in the fridge, in an airtight container, they will last seven days or more (unless eaten sooner!).


Mexican Mini Chocolate Cubes (Alkaline, Anti-Inflammatory & Antioxidant-Rich)

  • Author: Ross
  • Yield: 12 cubes 1x



1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 pinch black pepper
1 pinch fine sea salt
50 grams cacao butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
25 drops liquid stevia


1) In a small mixing bowl, mix together the cacao powder, chili, cinnamon, nutmeg, pepper and salt.

2) Now you need to melt the cacao butter, so put this into a ceramic or glass dish and put over a small saucepan of simmering water, until melted.

3) Once melted, stir this with the stevia into the dry ingredients and stir until smooth.

4) Divide between two lightly greased mini loaf pans and allow it to set at room temperature until firm. Then cut into the size you would like and store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

  2. Annette Burgess Reply

    Just wondering what I can use instead of stevia? I don’t like sweeteners in any form.

    First, thank you so much for sharing your favorite recipes with us. Can you substitute the cacao butter with coconut oil or ghee?

    Thank you

    Turned out really well, i added more cinnamon ginger and some roasted red pepper flakes, and tumeric, suggest turning it out quickly as it hardens fast and becomes hard to get out of the bowl.
    Thank you !

    I went on the alklaine reset program for 14 days and felly so good that I continued for another 14 days. I lost 9 pounds the first 2 weeks then have mysteriously stabilized although I be been 100% compliant. My partner lost 23 and we stayed on the regime. Why do you think I’m no longer losing pounds? On sometime I hike in the mountains on steep terrain 3 days a week and have been happy w just a couple green drinks and a quinoa wrap with veggies. ????? I’m so happy that I have a partner on the program and truly love being creative with herbs and spices.

    Ross I would live to try these chocolate cubes. I have some excellent, organic chocolate in blocks. Can you tell me how to change the recipe to use these, instead if the cocoa, please?
