Adopting a healthy lifestyle does not mean saying good-bye to the things you love forever. It’s a continuous shift; a shift away from the things that are not serving you, and towards that which allows you to shine.
Today’s shift is one of my favorite things in the whole world – CHOCOLATE!
When buying chocolate, you want to be on the lookout for 70% cocoa or more to receive the health benefits of this wonderful substance. However, some people choose not to partake in store bought chocolate since it contains sugar, and an additive called soy lecithin. Soy lecithin has been under some controversy, as are many soy products (with the exception of fermented). There is a diplomatic article on the topic here. We won’t even get started on the topic of sugar, or it may take over this whole post (I am happy to go into it for you though, just contact me).
So if you want to reduce your exposure to sugar or soy products, or are having a chocolate craving with no sign of chocolate in the house – NOOOOOOOO, then try out this yummy recipe.
2 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp raw honey
Blend all the ingredients together (I use a Nutri-Bullet). You can choose how you want to shape them – you can re-purpose those silicone baby food containers, drop by spoonful on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper, or pipe them out (my daughter piped them into beautiful poop emoji’s)
Refrigerate or freeze until solid, and enjoy!
** A note on piping– Work in small batches in the pastry bag because your hands on the bag will warm up the mix and liquefy the coconut oil.
