One of the most requested items our clients ask for are chocolate recipes. Most recipes are high in sugar and unhealthy fats, raise insulin levels and pack on weight. This healthy version of chocolate fudge is adapted from elanaspantry.com. We have also broken down the fat and carb counts for you, so that you can add a treat, without going off of your food plan. Enjoy!
1-1/2 cups Lily’s chocolate chips (available at Health Nut on
Enterprise Dr. in Lynchburg.) **see image below
2/3 cup full fat, unsweetened canned coconut milk
1 tsp. pure vanilla
Line the bottom and 2 inches of the sides of a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
Remove contents of canned coconut milk, place in a bowl and whisk or beat until smooth.
In a medium-sized pan melt coconut milk and chocolate together over low heat. Stir in vanilla just until mixed. Pour into loaf pan and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. Makes 18 servings.
One serving equals ½ serving of fat and 5 low-glycemic, net carbs. Although we do not count carbs on your food plan, we do want you to understand it is not going to sabotage your meal. However, just make sure to eat at the end of your meal and not as a snack.
