Weekend recipe: Healthy Organic Chocolate with Coconut and Super Berries

Remember that cereal that used to advertise itself by saying, “don’t tell them it’s healthy and they’ll eat it by the boxful”?

Well, I try to do the opposite in our house. I tell my kids something is healthy so that they leave it well alone and I can have it all to myself.

This reverse psychology failed miserably with my Choc Superfood Balls and I suspect it’s going to fail with this healthy organic chocolate as well.

Then there is also the mind game I play with myself. Surely if I’m using all organic ingredients packed full of antioxidants, then I can have more. Can’t I?

Actually don’t answer that … just give this recipe a go. I’ve created this using a recipe from friend and nutritionist whole foods guru Cyndi O’Meara (BTW Cyndi has been talking whole foods since the early 1990s … long before it became an on-trend thing).

The basis of this recipe uses the organic cacao wafers she now sources and sells. The wafers look like the chocolate melts you’d find at a supermarket but they do not taste like them! Hello no sugar.

You can find the stove-top recipe by clicking the tab on the cacao wafer shopping page.

I went with the Thermomix recipe because in our house we do everything possible in our Thermo-tron (the affectionate nickname applied to our machine, which we’ve had almost three years and use daily). I also went with a variation that included organic antioxidant super berries and organic desiccated coconut. So much like a Cherry Ripe but packing a punch full of goodness.

Healthy Organic Coconut and Super Berry Chocolate recipe

 

I’m storing mine in the freezer as it really does melt super easily – on contact. The taste is definitely one for people who love dark chocolate and not a lot of sugar but having said that, it passed the seven-year-old boy taste test.

Is this something you’d like to try to make? Or would you just rather grab a ready-made block ;)

    That looks amazing! Every time I see a recipe post mentioning a thermomix I just *know* I need one. Seeing as Mr Handyman bought a Harley today, it may be a good time to get one ;)
