Why You’ll Love It

Cacao is a top source of antioxidants, and it contains an abundance of magnesium and iron. To make our cacao powder, the finest cacao beans are milled at low temperature to protect the nutrients and flavor. Our raw powder is a healthy alternative to conventional over-processed “cocoa” used for baking, hot chocolate, desserts, and smoothies.

Reviews For Organic Cacao Powder

perfect for cooking

I like the nibs better for my smoothies more, because i am not a chocolate fan as much. However i would recommend for anyone who loves chocolate flavor for any cooking or smoothies. Great fresh flavor.

Cacao Powder

I am all the way, a plain coffee drinker. No flavors whatsoever, (except a little sweetener)...until now. Just tried this Cacao powder. Delicious. Will be having this superfood in my coffee every morning!

- Gail

Love this product!

I absolutely love this cacao, have to always make sure I don't run out. I make my own hot chocolate with it and add it to my coffee every morning. A great way to make my coffee flavored rather than the artificial stuff in other flavored coffee

- Deb

Rich Cacao Flavor

This is such an amazingly tasty super food. I try to consume 1 tablespoon per day, with my coffee, morning shake or simply as a hot chocolate + collagen peptides. The flavor is rich and smooth. Can be sweetened with a little bit of coconut sugar. Great add on to oatmeal, chia pudding... the possibilities are endless with such a versatile ingredient. I purchased the 16oz bag, a better buy, and package it in ball jars for extended freshness

- Laura Perez


I have never tried Cacao powder before and now I have it everey morning in my coffee and protein drink. It will now be one of my staples.

- Donna

Good in everything!

I put this in my coffee and protein drink and it is fabulous.

- Donna

NOT bitter!

Well, I'm new to all this (Paleo convert), new to Thrive, etc. So hesitantly, I ordered this cacao really expecting it to be akin to the bitter cacao I remembered as a kid. Not at all; it blends nicely into my coffee with almond-coconut unsweetened milk and made for a yummy start to the day.

- Judi

Awesome cacao

If you are looking for clean and pure cacao, then look no further.

Cacao + MCT Oil + Ghee + Water = Energy and Alertness

I don't drink coffee, but I do consume MCT Oil and Ghee, so I wanted to try the equivalent of Bulletproof coffee with Cacao, and this product was a good addition.

- Antonio

Great product


- Kevin


I love this! I add it to my morning shake daily now, bake with it!! Will be a regular in our house now!

- Jennifer


I use it for baking and also for smoothies and shakes.

- Wydalis


I love this cacao for all of my dessert recipes! The flavor is amazing.

- Jessica Suazo

Works great

This product works great in smoothies baking for a healthy less sugar cocoa taste

- Linda

Love it!

Purchased for several years and glad to see it at such a great price on Thrive!

- Karen

Chocolate Shake

I use this in a shake with banana, almond butter, a touch of cinnamon. YUM!

- Janet

Best chocolate


- Lana

Item damaged

The package was cut when I opened the box. The cacao aroma was nice but a bit messy!

- Mona Pridemore

Better than regular Cocoa Powder

I love the flavor, light texture and simplicity of this product. I've used it in plenty of baked goods, stews, and smoothies. Full bodied chocolate flavor right here!

- Kimberly

Very good!

I really liked this product, it works great as an add in for a smoothie. It does leave a bitter taste if not mixed in well. I can't wait to see what else this product does!

- shopgirl

Quite potent

I purchased this cacao powder for the great health benefits it provides. I have been adding it to my smoothies every morning but the bitterness makes it difficult to enjoy. I don't consume much chocolate so this is becoming an adjustment. To ease my transition into this new product, I have been adding natural honey to sweeten it until I get used to the strong taste.

- Jessie J.


I've made hot chocolate with this fabulous cacao by warming 1 tbsp with 1 cup almond milk in a saucepan. To that, I added dash of vanilla and a few drops of Stevia. I couldn't believe how yummy and satisfying it was. And to think I'm getting a healthy (natural) dose of magnesium is even better!
I plan to never be without this product. Thanks Thrive for making it more affordable so I can keep it stocked in my pantry!

Making Chocolate

Have you ever tried making raw chocolates? If not, you totally need to. They're just like bite-sized pieces of heaven, and I absolutely fall in love with them. Raw chocolate can do so much for your immune system and health, and making raw chocolates is just a delicious form to eat cacao in. This has been great. Not only does it do well in my chocolates, but it works well in my morning protein shake and in smoothies as well. It adds a delicious taste without all of the extra sugar that most chocolate powders have. Love this stuff.

- Kathy

Raw chocolate goodness

I love raw cacao and it makes the best treats. I made raw chocolates with this and they were to die for.

Raw chocolate is a very different experience from the chocolate or cocoa you normally buy. You will never look at cooked chocolate the same way again, and you might just never want it again.

This is my favorite brand.

- Holly Waingartner

Hot Cacao

I am vegan and it has been a challenge for me to find something for hot cocoa that doesn't contain any kind of dairy. I love me some hot cocoa in the winter and it is getting chilly out.
I tried this cacao and I am now obsessed with it. With 5g of protein it has health benefits. It's not processed like the garbage you buy in the supermarket.

- Nikki M

Love this

Cacao powder, for those that don't know, is what chocolate is made out of (and cocoa butter too)! This organic cacao powder is wonderful and has many great uses.

I love to use this in my smoothies, adding a nice cocoa flavor to my bananas (the base for my smoothies).

Anyone trying to eat healthier should try this stuff!

- Raelynn

Great for Hot Cocoa

This holiday season, I'm making organic hot cocoa treats for my guests. They're going to be packaged in canning jars including the organic cocoa and organic marshmallows. It's going to make a great work gift! I've been using this natural cocao powder to perfect a hot cocoa recipe to include for my gift. It's taken some experimentation, but after about 5 tries, I've found a perfect recipe to include. My husband has tried a couple cups, and he says it tastes about the same as store-bought hot cocoa. Score!

- Ida

Now that's some drinking chocolate

While it takes some getting used to the difference between chocolate and cacao, you will find that it is a wonderful, healthy alternative.

The hot cocoa made with it can be a little bitter, unless you add in something to sweeten it. I love to make it with rice or almond milk. I also use it in my smoothies. It blends well and makes my chocolate banana smoothies to die for.

- Stephan Islam

Healthy But Strong Taste

I guess my taste buds have been ruined by drinking so much inferior cocoa, but Navitas Naturals cacao powder makes a strong cup of hot chocolate. It's good, but it's a bit bitter for me.

I've taken to mixing in with a protein blender to get the best texture. I think it's just about getting used to the real taste of cocoa, which isn't loaded with sweetener. But three stars for now.

- Jill H.

Best for drinking

This is a raw cacao powder that's low in fat. But it's best for drinking as I've tried cooking a couple of times with it, and didn't get the best results.

But as hot chocolate it works great. I mix it right into almond milk to get the best smooth texture and taste. There's nothing but cacao in this, so you're getting what nature intended.

- Joe Horne

Lots of good ingredients

I have to say that this cocoa isn't the most wonderful I've ever had. But it's the healthiest, and that's even more important. Maybe because this is raw powder, it takes some stirring to get it mixed into water or almond milk.

But every time I drink some hot chocolate, I'm filled with energy. I feel stronger, more vibrant and definitely more alive. I love it in the morning as an instant pick me up.

- Jane H.

Delicate and delicious

I've tried other organic cocoa, but this is the best. Navitas Naturals makes a great powder that I can use for hot chocolate or in brownie and other recipes.

It doesn't have a bitter taste, and the flavor is strong and distinct. Raw cacao is one of the best antioxidants in the world, so this is as healthy as you'll get when it comes to cocoa.

- James Holmes

I love how this product tastes

I love how this product tastes like hot chocolate when I mix it with warm milk. Plus it has antioxidants and iron so this is really a catch especially for girls and those people with anemia.

- Georgia Fletcher

Delicious chocolatey flavor!!!

I am a serious chocolate lover and this cacao powder is a great alternative if you want something a little healthier. I love that this one is organic and non-GMO. I like to add it to my smoothies. I'll definitely stick with this product!

- N. Rose

Chocolatey goodness!!!

This stuff is awesome! It's got a good amount of protein and isn't processed, which shows in the taste. I love making hot chocolate with it, and it's also great for baking. It really tastes incredible - far superior to any other cocoa I've tried. Real chocolate lovers will love this!
