Now, y’all know I’m not a chocolate fan, but on the rarest occasions I get a craving for something with chocolate. And it’s been worse now since I’ve been on the GAPS Diet. I finally caved and indulged in ahealthier version of what I was craving. Plus it called for gelatin, and well…
The end result was absolutely spectacular! Super chocolaty, rich, and a small serving is all it took(even though the above picture shows more).
What you’ll need:
14 oz can full fat coconut milk
1/2 c raw organic unfiltered honey
1 1/2 T bovine gelatin
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
Pinch of Pink Himalayan salt
In a sauce pan add all the ingredients and cook over low/medium heat whisking constantly. Do not bring to a boil. Cook until gelatin is dissolved. Pout into a glass storage container and refrigerate until set.
It’s that easy, sets up beautifully, and surprisingly there wasn’t the tiniest bit of coconut flavor. Now, to make this more low carb friendly simply replace the honey with your favorite natural sweetener. Although here’s a surprisingly handy tidbit, raw organic unfiltered honey is safe even when living a lower carb lifestyle. Trust me, I struggled with accepting this until I read that our bodies react to honey differently than it does to regular sugar. This makes it safe for even diabetics. This does not mean you should start using copious amounts in everything, moderation is key. I never use more than a tablespoon of honey in my warm lemon water. When I use it in my baked good and desserts I make sure to take a smaller portion and savor the treat. If all of this were false then I should not have been able to lose 35 pounds since August 12th. The honey alone should have sabotaged all my efforts.
Understanding though that there are those out there that must err on the side of caution for health sake, I urge you to do what is best for you and use the appropriate sweetener for this recipe.
I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I have, it is definitely a keeper. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Hope you all have a blessed weekend!!!
