Most people prefer to eat sweets in moderation. Why is this so hard to do? Let’s face it. Sugar is addictive. Some individuals I work with feel that sugar is an all or nothing conversation and that staying away completely works best. Others find this approach leads to restriction/overindulging swings. A healthy approach to sugar is not “one size fits all.”
For those that are trying to find moderation and struggling, I have invented the single serving homemade chocolate recipe. It does not live in the cupboard. It needs to be made nightly. It is gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free (hard to find in chocolate bars). And it is arguable the best tasting chocolate I have ever had.
2 tsp coconut oil
1 Tblsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp coconut palm sugar
1-2 tsp milk alternative
sprinkle of sea salt
(optional) raw pistachios or other nuts, dried fruit
Melt coconut oil if not liquid. Stir in all ingredients except pistachios and milk. Line very small bowl with plastic wrap. Place nuts, dried fruit (as desired) on plastic wrap and pour chocolate mixture over top. Place in fridge for 30 minutes then enjoy.
