After much trial and error I have finally tweaked the Trim, Healthy Mama (THM) recipe to my liking!
- 1/4 cup xylitol, ground (or a mixture of xylitol and erythritol)
- A few shakes of NuNaturals Pure Stevia Extract Powder
- 1/4 cup pure cocoa
- 1/2 cup Banaban coconut oil
- 1Tb cream (or cream cheese will also do the trick!)
- Crack of salt
- Dash of vanilla (optional)
*Optional additions: 1 scoop of WPI, coconut, berries, chopped nuts, berries, peanut paste, etc. Maybe even a squirt of Nirvana Stevia Chocolate Drops.
Simply mix all ingredients together. Pour into molds or pour onto a plastic (disposable) plate or a silicone baking tray and freeze for 15min. Either remove from molds and store in the fridge or use a blunt knife to break chocolate into chunks.
In summer, you won’t need to warm the coconut oil as it will already be melted but in winter you can put it into a bowl over a pot of simmering water and heat it very gently – just enough to melt the oil. Then pour the oil into the dry ingredients and stir gently to combine. I mix it all up in a handy dandy bullet mixer. I don’t have a proper Magic Bullet but a cheap knock-off version does me just fine! However, I find it absolutely essential to grind the sweetener – otherwise the chocolate will be grainy.
A Serving Size is about one third of this mix at each sitting.
I have the handy dandy shaker that came with the NuNaturals Stevia but cant wait for the newly released THM sweeteners. I open the lid to only have the powder come out from three little circles. I then give the Stevia about 3 gentle shakes. However, it’s all personal taste learned through trial and error.
I only buy pure cocoa. Cacao is too expensive for me, and I don’t particularly see much difference between it and pure cocoa. Simply check the back of the packet for the ingredient list to ensure you have pure or 100% cocoa. Some producers add all sorts of sweeteners and fillers to their cocoa so you don’t want this.
