A Healthy Chocolate Snack


Who doesn’t crave a bit of chocolate or something sweet?  In this video, my favourite natural health physician talks you through his recipe for a healthy chocolate snack.

Health chocolate snack

Here are some notes I took as I watched the video:

  • Main fat is is raw cacao butter.  Melt it in a double boiler (Pyrex container inside a pan of boiling water).
  • You can also use coconut oil (equal parts of this and the cacao butter).
  • Add raw organic cacao powder.
  • Add Lohan sweetener or Stevia (you don’t need to add both, though he does add both in this video).
  • Cinnamon is a healthy spice you can add.
  • Liquid Stevia can be added.  You can get chocolate & mint flavor stevia.
  • Pure vanilla extract.
  • Mix the ingredients together.
  • Pour onto a dinner plate and put it in the refrigerator.  Alternatively use a silicon mold and and pour the mixture into the mold and refrigerate.

I haven’t tried the recipe myself, but will be.  I think I’ll chop up some walnuts (and other nuts) really fine and add to mine as they’ll provide a lot of great vitamins (as well as fatty acids).  Also a pinch of salt will bring out the flavor of the chocolate.  I know chili goes well with chocolate, so that would be an excellent one to try as well.

Enjoy your chocolate!
