Looking for an easy, dairy-free, no-added sugar dessert? Here you go…try this one out if you have a craving for a chocolate treat.

I’ve even recommended this to clients who’ve participated in the 21-Day Sugar Detox as all of the ingredients are appoved and safe.

Cocoa Benefits (just to name a few):

 

  • high in antioxidants (protect against disease)
  • a study published in the Journal of Hypertension showed that “flavanol-rich chocolate counteracted vascular impairment after sleep deprivation and restored working memory performance. Improvement in cognitive performance could be because of the effects of cocoa flavonoids on blood pressure and peripheral and central blood flow.” (Journal of Hypertension, July 2016)
  • a rich source of magnesium

Recipe Notes

Serve with unsweetened shredded coconut, your favorite berries, and/or cacao nibs sprinkled on top. Or simply enjoy plain. 

Keep in mind, this is not a super sweet dessert, so if you'd like to make it sweeter, you could adjust the amount of coconut aminos which lends a sweet flavor, or add your favorite sweetener instead of the coconut aminos, such as maple syrup, honey, or stevia. This will taste like dark chocolate, so keep that in mind.
