3-Ingredients and 3-minutes is all you need to make this decadent and naturally, healthy dessert. It looks pretty amazing when you serve it up on a tray with some strawberries.
A few nutritional facts to convince you why you need to eat this!
Dark Chocolate is high in magnesium = ‘Nature’s Tranquilliser’. Helps calm the stress response, aids sleep and balances hormones
Coconut flakes are high fibre, which means it sweeps through the gut and helps eliminate toxins/wastes, including excess oestrogen
doTERRA Peppermint Essential Oil = Digestion HERO. Yup, peppermint essential oil is a gentle digestive tonic. Remember, 1 drop Peppermint essential oil = 28 cups of peppermint tea, so don’t be too heavy handed when you’re adding him in!
200 grams dark chocolate (I used Green & Blacks 70% organic dark chocolate), melted
1/2 cup coconut flakes
5 drops doTERRA Peppermint essential oil
Add all ingredients in a bowl
Stir until combined
Pour in to silicon moulds and allow it to set in the freezer for 10 minutes.
NB: If you don’t have moulds, you can pour it in to a baking tray lined with baking paper, and create more of a coconut rough bark. Whatever works for you!
Enjoy and try not to eat them all at once!
