The Natural New Age Dad is quite fond of a bit of chocolate, so I thought I would make him a healthy, home-made version for Valentine’s Day.
It’s got that extra special ingredient – love! ♥♥♥
I bought Sarah Wilson’s book, I Quit Sugar last week and her ‘Raspberry Ripple’ recipe caught my eye. Yes, I changed it a bit and thermified it too.
Okay, so this is what you need:
1/2 cup or 100g organic Changing Habits coconut oil
1/3 cup or 50g organic butter (I think it would work just fine without if you want a dairy free option)
2 tablespoon organic, raw cacao
2 tablespoon organic apple juice concentrate (you may need a little more if you like it really sweet!)
1/3 cup organic coconut flakes
1/3 cup organic frozen raspberries
Okay, so this is what you do:
Chop the butter and add it to the thermomix with the coconut oil.
Melt on 80 degrees on speed 1 for two to three minutes.
Add the cacao and the AJC and mix well on speed 3 for about 20 seconds.
Get a dinner plate and lay down a piece of baking paper.
Sprinkle it with the raspberries and coconut. The raspberries do not need to be thawed.
Wiggle the plate around so all the raspberries and coconut are covered.
Chuck it in the freezer for a couple of hours to set. Break it up into chunks and put it in a pretty container. Or if you want to get fancy, you can cut it heart shapes with a cookie cutter.
Keep this baby refrigerated, because the coconut oil melts!
If you don’t have a thermomix, just melt everything in a saucepan and then pour over the raspberry and coconut.
Deliver to your Valentine and be prepared for smooches. Or just eat it by yourself and get them a card. 😀
