This recipe is chock full of antioxidants, superfoods and yes - it's CHOCOLATE!
While the Hubby was traveling this week, I had the kitchen to myself to play.
When I say 'play', I mean - make chocolate.
I then saw fit to eat said chocolate for dinner, with wine.
Why you'll love it
You will love this dairy free chocolate recipe because it’s a guilt-free go-to alternative for your chocolate cravings. Hear me now - there is no health-related benefit to giving up chocolate if you love it because the really good stuff actually has a ton of beneficial qualities.
I’m talking antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and most certainly anti-fat gain. This recipe will not let you down and it won’t steer you down a path of sugar madness.
Keep it in the freezer and it will last for at least a few weeks. Just defrost one or two when you’re feeling a craving come on. Give the chocolate a little time to warm up to room temperature (or not) and enjoy.
It's all upside.
