Oh Dear. My sister just introduced me to this unbelievably delicious raw chocolate recipe! Being healthy has never been so easy.
I've always been huge on chocolate. I grew up around it. In fact, one of my sister's is pretty much a committed chocoholic! - Just kidding. But seriously, it's almost true. And I don't blame her, I actually take after her. It's super delicious! If you're anything like me, then you've probably had times where you've felt really fat.. and so you 'comfort eat' half a block of chocolate to make yourself feel better. What a stupid spiral that is!! Let me tell you, it's a very temporary feel good! So then you go and eat the other half of the block to make yourself feel better for downing the first half! ..And it just keeps going.
WELL! No more feeling guilty for eating chocolate! This is super healthy and only takes about 5 minutes to make and 5 minutes to freeze. Then approximately 5 minutes to devour.
You can put whatever toppings on you like! So if you're not feeling like nuts, feel free to get creative.
- 2 heaped tablespoons of Raw Cacao (You can use 100% Cocoa instead, totally healthy as long as theres no added nasties, but won't be 'raw')
- 2 heaped tablespoons of Coconut Oil
- 2 heaped teaspoons of natural honey (You can use maple syrup instead, but again, won't be 'raw')
- 4 twists of Himalayan Pink Rock Salt
- Whatever you like! I did a variety to give you ideas, but you can do pretty much anything that's going to make your taste buds come alive.
Turn your stove on low. Mix the 'chocolate' ingredients together in a pot over the stove. I do this because in the cooler weather, coconut oil is hard. However, if your coconut oil is runny, you can just mix the ingredients in a bowl.
Once nicely combined and smooth, test taste! If you think it needs sweetening a little, you can add a dash more maple syrup!
Line a tray with baking paper, and pour chocolate mixture on top. Tip the sides of the tray to make the chocolate run towards the sides a little, however, try not to thin it out too much.
Now dress it up! Sprinkle on your favourite toppings! You can do the whole tray the same, or divide it up. As examples, I did Almond & Goji Berries, Homemade Nut Butter and Cashews.
Pop it in the freezer for at least 5 minutes - the longer the better. Then once it's set, pull it out and break it up into chunks and serve!
And that's literally it!! How amazing is that?! Totally healthy chocolate, and you can have as much of it as you want without feeling guilty!
An important tip though - When it's left out of the freezer, it will start to melt. So remember to keep it in the freezer unless you're eating it!
Enjoy, and make it over and over again. Let me know what sort you make, I'm always up for new ideas!
Have a beautiful day,
