Chocolate Covered Berries

Chocolate Covered Berries

There is no Easter without chocolate! Fact!

Growing up Easter Sunday was that one day of the year when you’d get more chocolate that you could ever handle; eat so much the stuff and feel so sick that you would not be able to face another drop of it for a whole year until it was time for the easter bunny to visit once more and do it all over again!

While I will not justify going on a chocolate binge, I am not willing to give up the tradition of having chocolate at Easter. This year I decided to go a little healthier and boost my chocolate with vitamins, antioxidants and fibre! Easy and delicious it also makes a lovely thoughtful handmade present!

Ingredients:

  • Chocolate (1 bar is enough for 1 box of strawberries and a few blueberries)
  • Berries (strawberry and blueberries are my favorites)

Method:

1 - I like to make things as easy as I can so I used the microwave, but you can always use the hob and melt it in 'bain marie' . It took 3 minutes to melt a bar of dark chocolate (give it a stir every minute). And 2 minutes for the milk chocolate. Check constantly though as it is easy to burn chocolate if you leave it too long.

2- Line a tray with foil or clean film.

3- Dip berries in chocolate and place on tray

4 -Once most of the chocolate is gone and there is not enough to dip, stir in some blueberries.

5- Place tray in the fridge to set for 5 minutes before serving.

Happy Healthy Easter Everyone!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball

Ok, so I made these in the morning and left in the fridge to enjoy it later. HOWEVER, when I got home they were gone! Vanished! I looked at James which immediately pointed at the cat and said “Jolie ate it!”. Yeaaah, ok! The cat ate it! Let’s leave at that, shall we? So I chose to take it as a compliment. James is quite fussy when it comes to protein treats and if he couldn’t resist it, then it MUST have been good!

This recipe was inspired by Fresh Fitness Food. If you follow me on facebook/Instagram/Twitter, you probably know I am very fortunate to have my food delivered by them. Whenever I post a picture of their protein balls, I always get lots of requests for the recipe! So I decided to come up with my own recipe... This was the second attempt and I thought it was delicious... Even if I say so myself ;)

They are perfect for a little pick me up snack or for when you need a little something sweet!
 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls

  • 20g Kinetica Thermo Whey Smooth Chocolate
  • 20g crunchy peanut butter 
  • 10g Coconut Flour
  • 5g Honey
  • 3g Chia Seeds
  • 20g unsweetened Almond Milk (or any other milk)
  • Desiccated Coconut (finishing touch)
     

 

 

 

 

Method

  • Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. 
  • Add the honey and the peanut butter and mix. 
  • Finally add the almond milk. I'd suggest you add little by little until you get the right consistency. Too little and it becomes too dry. Too much and it turns into a gooey mess. For me it took 3 1/2 TBS of almond milk.
  • Roll it into 6 little (or 3 large) balls and roll it in the dissociated coconut.

You can enjoy it straight away, but I find that the consistency and taste improves when chilled.

Enjoy :)

So it takes all 3 minutes to do and you only 3 (maybe 4) ingredients:

Cut the apple and the banana into thin slices. layer it onto a plate. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top and microwave it for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. Drizzle with honey and serve warm. Voila'!
