Chocolate Spread

Nutritional Information

This is a wonderfully versatile spread to have ready to go in the fridge. Chocolate cravings needn’t be satisfied with processed confectionary when you have a dairy and refined sugar-free, nutrient dense option on hand. The fat content of this spread will leave you feeling satisfied, so try a tablespoon of this spread mid-afternoon drizzled over a banana, nuts and seeds or straight off the spoon. A higher fat snack mid-afternoon can be an effective strategy to help you choose a smaller serving come dinnertime.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • pinch of salt

Method

  1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend for 10 seconds or until just combined.
