Being unable to workout, or do anything really, is so annoying! I like to move around and be busy all the time, so for me sitting at home watching TV and reading all day, is NOT fun. To bring some interest to my recovery, I have made raw homemade chocolate 😀 The recipe is courtesy of The Wellness Warehouse magazine 🙂 There are only four vital ingredients that you need:
- 200g cacao paste
- 100g cacao butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup maple syrup/coconut nectar/honey
You need to melt the coconut oil, cacao butter and cacao paste over a low heat until completely melted. Then pour the melted mixture into a bowl and add the sweetener of your choice, and mix until it is all blended smoothly 🙂 Flavoring is really a personal choice. I added salt and nuts to mine just to add some interesting flavour 😛
Pour the mixture into silicone ice trays (or muffin pans if you don’t have) and allow to set in the fridge 🙂 It is honestly so easy and simple to make these, plus they are much healthier than regular chocolate!
