  • Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat egg whites in a small bowl until soft peaks form for approximately 2 1/2 minutes.In a large bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, add egg yolks, milk, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. stir with a whisk.
  • Melt dark chocolate over double boiler on stove, removing from heat as soon as it’s melted. Add wet mixture to dry, mixing only till combined. As a final step, working in 2 batches, fold egg whites and melted chocolate, alternating each time into batter just until combined. Do not over mix, but ensure that it's well incorporated throughout.
  • Heat a waffle iron to the proper heat setting for your iron and lightly coat with nonstick spray. Working in batches, cook waffles following the waffle iron instructions, approximately 4-6 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack set inside a baking sheet, cover loosely with foil, and keep warm in oven until ready to serve at 175 degrees.
  • To prepare citrus puree, peel all citrus and add to blender such as a blended or vitamix. Add vanilla and puree for 2-3 minutes until it’s whipped and creamy in texture. You can also use a standard blender or even food processor, but you’ll likely want to strain the juice depending on your preference of the pulp. Store in mason jar in fridge and use within 1-2 days. Great to enjoy as a glass of orange juice! Feel free to dilute with water or kombucha for a lighter drink.
