This quick and easy chocolate recipe is a godsend when I’m beyond desperate for chocolate.
Because it’s so incredibly quick to make and I always have all the ingredients at home anyway, I don’t hit the corner shop for something containing god-knows-what.
Within 10 minutes you will be able to feast on crunchy chocolaty treats that will defiantly keep you satisfied AND improve your health as well :)
1/3 Cup Raw coconut Oil (excellent for liver protection, you can read more HERE)
1 tablespoon of Raw cacao powder (full of antioxidants, Magnesium and Iron)
Stevia or Coconut Nectar to taste (I use 2 teaspoons of coconut nectar)
Pinch of Himalayan Crystal salt
This is the base the rest is optional or just add the super foods you have lurking in your cupboard.
2 Tablespoons of Quinoa Pops (I always have these at home since my kids have them for breakfast)
1 Teaspoon of Maca Powder (perfect for balancing your hormones, and let’s not beat around the bush, my chocolate craving appears once a month)
1 teaspoon of Nutritional Yeast (packed with B vitamins and also brings an added taste level)
Melt the coconut oil, add all the remaining ingredients, Pour into an ice tray and leave in the freezer for about 7 minutes.
This raw pudding recipe is super yummy and super healthy!
Perfect as a refreshing end to a meal on a hot summers day.
1/2 Fresh Pineapple
2 tablespoons of Chia Seeds (you’ll find them in the health food store)
1/2 Cup Water
This Lime and Avocado Ice Cream is beyond good, and incredibly healthy to boot!
It’s another yummy recipe where I fool the kids into eating avocado
It’s so quick and easy to make it’s rediculous!
Hope you like it.
Avocados are so healthy, they contain fabulous monounsaturated fat that is easily used as energy and keeps you skin looking great!
They are full of health boosting nutrients like vitamin E, K, A, C and the B’s, and contains more potassium than a medium banana.
It’s good for keeping cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels healthy and it has also also anti-inflammatory properties.
Avocados contains the master antioxidant, glutathione, which prevents aging!
I’ve been trying to feed the kids avocados since I started weaning them, but they won’t have any of it!! Until now!!
They of course have no idea this amazing chocolate mousse is based on avocados, so obviously I have to make this pudding when I’m alone in the kitchen.
Avocado Chocolate Mousse Recipe:
2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup coconut nectar (you’ll fin this in health stores)
1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons of cacao powder
juice from 1/2 organge
(put it in the fridge for a few hours before serving )
Just because I avoid sugar and chemically laden candy doesn’t mean my 2 boys are on the same page, FAR from it!
I would never forbid them to eat candy and cakes when they are with friends but at home I try to come up with OK alternatives.
I have to say I was pretty happy with the Organic Raw Chocolate Covered Mulberries I found in my local health food store the other day.
Dried fruit should be eaten with slight caution because of the high sugar content but Mulberries contains quite large amounts of proteins so they are a good choice.
They are also a good source of Vitamin C, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium and Vitamin K, and Raw Cacao comes with lovely antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
But did they taste any good?
I was sold, so was my 9-year-old, by the time we picked up his little brother, the bag was empty so we don’t know if it was a thumbs up from him as well..
Sometimes a bit of extra sweetness in your life is necessary!
It’s one of those days today…
I’m sucking on a few Matcha Tea Candies, almost healthy!
Here is a link to my Tea video.
Wishing you all an amazing weekend!
My absolute favorite home-made christmas treat is the very traditional swedish classic Ischoklad (ie ice-chocolate).
It’s so easy to make you only mix two ingredients: chocolate and coconut oil.
The name refers to the cooling effect you get when you pop this scrumptious treat in your mouth, and it’s because the melting point of the coconut oil and the chocolate are different,
The coconut oil melts at about ten degrees lower than the chocolate.
If you want to increase the effect you can also add some mint to the mixture.
I’m sure you have heard of all the health benefits you get from raw coconut oil so you can eat this delicious treat with a good conscience!
Melt 250 grams of dark or milk chocolate and 125 grams of raw coconut oil in a Bain Marie.
(place ingredients in a bowl, which you place over a pan with boiling water)
Let it melt, stir.
Pour in to molds and place in the fridge until solidified.
Apparently National Chocolate Week started yesterday, how could I have missed that!!
Re-posting my healthy chocolate recipe video

I could not resist that combo.
Unfortunately there’s too little Marmite and way too little cacao for my liking.
But of course I ate it all anyway
