Isn’t it wonderful – you don’t have to give up sweets, cake and chocolate when you want to live healthily? You can still have your cake and eat it too – in the sense that if you just make sure that what you eat is made from good ingredients and REAL food instead of chemicals and processed food-like substances.
Instead of grabbing a handful of sweets and industrialised prepared cake the next time you are in the supermarket, why don’t you make your home made sweets? This way you'll make sure that what you eat is guilt-free and only made from good quality ingredients. This will also ensure that you only give your body, real nourishment instead of filling up your body with chemicals. Lots of what we buy of snacks and cakes is filled with chemicals like taste enhancers, artificial colours, preservatives, trans fats, eeo ensure, and numerous other chemical ingredients hidden under the names of ‘spices’ and ‘artificial aromas’. Scary right?
Here is one of our favourite recipes for a healthy snack. Easy to make and truly enjoy with loved ones. Plus you get to feel the pride when serving something you made yourself because you care about your health. You could make these coconut chocolate bars with your kids, as an amazing and easy family activity.
• Half a can of coconut milk full fat (don’t ever choose the light version where the healthy fats are replaced by chemical ‘nasties’)
• 130 g coarse ground coconut
• 100 g dark chocolate (only use chocolate with cacao content of 70 percent or higher to ensure to limit what is in it of processed sugar and other chemical ‘nasties’)
• Half a teaspoon fine coconut sugar
Mix coconut milk, ground coconut and coconut sugar. Shape into small bars or balls in your preferred size place on a tray with baking paper. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Melt the chocolate and coat the bars or balls. Want to know about melting chocolate? Have a look here
