Healthy Emergency Chocolate Fix for One in 15 Seconds (Paleo, Vegan, dairy-free, soy-free)
If you ever crave chocolate, make this Healthy Emergency Chocolate Fix recipe which takes just 15 seconds and only 5 ingredients. (Paleo, Vegan, dairy-free)
- 1 tablespoon (13g) water
- 2 tablespoon (12g) raw cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon (14g) coconut oil soften
- 2 teaspoons (14g) raw honey or maple syrup, stevia, etc
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup frozen or fresh berries or other fruits
In a small bowl, add the water and cacao powder. Mix with a spoon until everything is well combined and a thick chocolate paste forms.
Add the coconut oil and the honey to the mixture and microwave for 15 seconds.
Stir contents in the bowl until combined. At this stage your chocolate might be thick. Thin it out to the desired consistency by adding about 1 teaspoon of water at the time, and mixing well after each addition. You might need about 3 teaspoons to make your chocolate have a smooth drizzling ganache consistency.
Pour chocolate sauce over your fruit of choice and enjoy.
If you make a large batch and have any chocolate left over, store it in an airtight jar in the refrigerator, and reheat it in the microwave at 15 seconds intervals until the chocolate is melted (or melt chocolate over a double boiler).
Note: you can skip adding the water in step 1 and just mix everything and microwave to make your chocolate. This works fine as well but your chocolate will have a grainy texture.
For a final note, I like stocking my freezer with a variety of frozen berries from Oregon Berries. They have a great selection of berries such as raspberries, blackberries, and hard to find Boysenberries, Marionberries and more. All of their frozen berries taste fresh and delicious!
