Like Chocolate for Women. 53 Shades of Chocolate.
Are they not the best book titles ever ? These ladies are geniuses I tell you.
Well hold onto your undies, because I am giving away both books and sharing some chocolate love with you.
Many thanks to the lovely Kim Morrison for sharing. I can’t tell you how much this lady inspires me.
From when I first read Like Chocolate for Women (many years ago now), to signing on as her affiliate partner and watching her fabulous life unfold on my Facebook feed, this lady encourages me to do better every single day. Now, let me tell you about both books before we get onto the recipe.
♥ Like Chocolate for Women is the ultimate self-care bible. Written by Kim and the gorgeous Fleur Whelligan, this book takes you on a journey of self- love. From beautiful aromatherapy rituals to healthy recipes to learning how to drop the guilt and pamper yourself, these ladies have it all covered. It feels like two best friends guiding you gently to a better life. I refer to it often and my copy is looking well-loved now. You can get it online from Kim here.
♥ 53 Shades of Chocolate is a chocolate lover’s dream come true. 53 healthy chocolate recipes! What is not to love? This book is available for immediate download and it’s cheaper than a box of chocolates! Written by Kim with the gorgeous Cyndi O’Meara (nutritionist at Changing Habits), it starts at breakfast and goes through to drinks, slices, cakes, desserts, biscuits and dips. It includes raw, gluten-free, dairy-free and thermomix-friendly recipes. You can get it online from Kim here.
Okay, now that I have told you how good they are, you can test it out yourself with this amazing recipe. It seems wrong that something so good can be healthy, but that is where the genius factor comes in!
Raw Chocolate Banana Mousse Cake
by Kim Morrison and Cyndi O’Meara from 53 Shades of Chocolate.
Okay, so this is what you need:
1 cup soaked almonds (soak for 2 hours in water, then drain)
½ cup pitted dates
1 Tbsp Changing Habits Coconut Oil
¼ tsp Himalayan (or sea) salt
4-5 tablespoons Changing Habits Coconut Oil
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
2 tsp vanilla essence or 1 vanilla pod, scraped
¼ tsp Himalayan (or sea) salt
3 Tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp raw honey
Okay so this is how you do it:
1. Place all base ingredients into TM on speed 10 for 5 seconds.
2. In a spring form round tin, press the mix into the base firmly and evenly.
3. Wipe out the TM and add all the ingredients for the middle layer. Blend on speed 8 for 10 seconds until smooth.
4. Pour this mixture into cake tin and spread evenly. Place tin in freezer to set the layer.
6. Meanwhile add the top layer ingredients into the TM and blend on speed 8 for 10 seconds until smooth.
7. Add this mixture to the tin and smooth to create a nice clean and even surface.
8. Garnish with some fresh fruit or berries.
9. Pop back into the freezer and leave to set for a couple of hours. This will make it easier to slice and serve.
If you don’t have a thermomix, your food processor and blender can be used in place of the thermomix.

What I REALLY need is information to prove to hubby
That coconut oil isn’t just for mediterraneans!
I have to choose? Any eshop that has a whole category of products simply labelled `chocolate’ is wondrous in my book. LOL.

The possibilities of what can be made with these delightful products are endless 🙂 Thanks again!
