Desserts Can Be Healthy and delicious
Desserts That Work For You Not Against You
Dessert 1 – Creamy Chocolate Mousse
Refridgerate 1 can of full fat Coconut Milk (from Whole Foods). Melt 1-2 squares of unsweetened chocolate squares with a small dab of coconut oil. Then add 2 individual serving packets of Stevia to the chocolate per square (2 squares = 4 packets). Strain the solid part of the coconut milk into a bowl, add the chocolate, mix and enjoy” You can add berries for extra deliciousness!
Dessert 2 – Berry Cereal
Defrost a cupful of organic blueberries (or other berries). When defrosted add to 3/4 cup of unsweetened vanilla Almond Milk.
Dessert 3 – Smoothie
Add 1 cup frozen berries to 2 cups Almond Milk or Coconut Milk. Blend immediately. *Add some Stevia to sweeten if needed.
Dessert 4 – Dark Choco Almond Cookies
I found this recipe on the side of one my vitamin suppliers shipping box. These are soooo good!
- 1 cup almond butter
- 3/4 cup natural sweetener (9 individual packets of Stevia but I hear a 1/2 cup of honey is great)
- 1 large egg (or 1 tbsp flax oil + 3 tbsp of water)
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or Himalayan Crystal Salt
- 3 oz dark chocolate pieces (I think Ghirardelli has the lowest sugar content)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine first 5 ingredients and stir then add chocolate. Drop rounded tablespoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, then cool and enjoy.
Dessert 5 – “Magic Shell” strawberries
Fresh strawberries (straight from the fridge). Add some coconut manna on top which will harden due to cool temperature of the strawberries.
Dessert 6 – Berries and Coconut Whipped Cream
Take a can of full fat coconut milk and refridgerate it for 3 – 24 hours. After the can has chilled, flip it over and open with a can opener (so all the settled cream is there at the top) and scoop out the solid cream. Whip the solid coconut milk with an electric mixer for a few minutes. Add fresh berries and enjoy!
