As a nutritarian and foodie I make sure that most of my food is crazy nourishing and satisfying.
Even chocolate. Especially chocolate.
Two of my favorite make-at-home-and-eat-almost-everyday chocolatey treats involve only three simple ingredients.
- coconut oil or butter
Mix everything together, adding cocoa and sweetener to taste. If your coconut oil/butter is hard then soften by placing the jar in a pot of hot water or microwaving desired amount in a micro-safe container.
*I use stevia but honey works well too and adds the amazing anti-fungal, anti-microbial, and anti-viral qualities of honey.
After I mix the three components I usually spoon out 1 teaspoon portions into little silicon cups and place them in the freezer to harden.
You can also store the whole thing in a jar, leave at room temp, and use like nutella. Or make a chocolate bark! Just remember that it will be soft at room temp, maybe even liquidy.
Chocolate in it’s usual form isn’t bad for you but I prefer not to eat sugar regularly and coconut butter is more nutritious than cocoa butter.
Not so pretty. Oh-so-delicious.
Mix cocoa and sweetener into plain yogurt. Eat. I use stevia for this one too but maple syrup works wonders as well.
Rich in flavonoids, protein, probiotics, calcium, and satisfaction. This chocolate “pudding” is great when after a meal when I am still a little hungry or for a more substantial late-afternoon sweet treat.
