Sugar Free Dark Chocolates
Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, but it also contains a lot of sugar. Although there are commercially made sugar free dark chocolates, they often contain other ingredients you do not necessarily want to be consuming. So, why not make your own using stevia with ingredients you know are clean? I am sharing a recipe with you today including coconut oil, a healthy fat, as well as raw cacao powder which is full of antioxidants and nutrients. It takes only 5 minutes to whip up a batch of this chocolate, and by pouring it into individual molds, it is portioned out perfectly for a serving. If you enjoy nuts as well, you can place an almond (or your favorite nut) into each mold after the chocolate has been poured into it (leaving a little space of course for it if you are going to do this).
