This recipe is from the Trim Healthy Mama book by Serene Allison and Pearl Barrett.
Over the last few months, I have been reading and re-reading this book (it is 650 pages long) and starting to implement the life style changes. The good thing is that you don't need to give up chocolate!
The main ingredient for this recipe is coconut oil. Coconut oil has wonderful health benefits, such as increasing the body's metabolic rate, strengthening the immune system, improving the digestive system and lowering cholesterol levels.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
natural sweetener to taste (I use coconut sugar or stevia)
1. Put all the ingredients in a glass bowl and heat gently over a saucepan filled with simmering water.
2. Mix together.
3. Pour into silicone muffin tins, just until the bottoms are covered, or onto a baking sheet or plate lined with wax paper.
4. Freeze until hard. Store in the freezer as this will melt quickly at room temperature.
