Easy and healthy chocolate dessert

Healthy and delisious chocolate dessert

This very easy and delicious dessert is full of protein-rich almond butter and antioxidant-rich  cocoa powder, which makes a decadent treat that is healthy too.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

170g raw almond butter
2 heaped tbsps 100% cocoa powder, sifted to remove any lumps
8 tablespoons Agave nectar (available in most health stores)
1 heaping teaspoon creamed coconut
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
small pinch coarse sea salt

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until well incorporated and without lumps.

Spoon the mixture into 2 separate molds, small baking form or candy moulds and flatten with the back of a spoon. Place in the freezer for an hour or so, then take it out and serve.

For fudge, double the amount of ingredients and cut to rectangles after freezing. Keep refrigerated or it will melt.

This will also make a delicious cake frosting.
