Can I just say that my 21DSD is really putting a cramp on my style? I pride myself in rarely consuming sugars, but I never realized how much fruit and starch I took in. Maybe a Whole30 would have been more appropriate? But then again, this really is an eye-opening experience–and I’m one of those snotty Paleo geeks who thought she knew everything!–and I’m glad I’m doing it. If nothing else, after a week I could swear I’m sleeping better and my cravings are *somewhat* better. I’d still knife someone for a sweet potato, but whatevs.
So, this recipe. NOT 21DSD approved. It’s an oldie, but I guess I’m craving more than just sweet potatoes today.
This is such a rich and decadent treat…I mean, OMG. I made it for the first time right after Ross left because I was sad and needed a shot of Chocolate Morphine. And then I made it a bunch after that. It’s only three ingredients (maybe four or five if you count any toppings…I’m a fan of even more chocolate chunks and cinnamon) and will leave you seeing chocolate stars without making you feel like you ate a brick the next morning. OMG, people!!
(Makes About 1 Cup, Serves 1-2)
1 can Full-Fat Coconut Milk
2-3 T Cocoa Powder (depending on how rich you want it)
2-3 T Raw Honey (depending on how sweet you want it)
Toppings: chocolate chips, shredded coconut, dollop of almond butter, cinnamon, etc…
Chill the can of coconut milk, unopened, for a few hours or overnight.
Open the can and scrape out the solidified cream layer into a bowl. Beat vigorously with a whisk or an electric mixer until softened. Add the honey and cocoa and beat until light and fluffy.
Top with your garnishes of choice, and enjoy!
