Two Treats to Treat your Heart and your Sweetheart!

Homemade Chocolate

1 part raw organic cocoa powder
1 part coconut oil
1/2 part honey
1 Tbsp nut butter(increase depending on amounts of first 3 ingredients)

This is the  basic recipe- sorry it requires just "eyeballing" it.  Mix listed ingredients, then add chopped nuts (like almonds or cashews), shredded unsweetened coconut, dried cranberries or cherries (sweetened with fruit juice) as desired. Spread on wax paper or silicone mat and let set.
Be careful, it's hard to put down!

3 Ingredient Strawberry Ice Cream

2 cans coconut milk
6 ounces frozen strawberries OR 1 ½ cups fresh strawberries
1/3 cup raw honey
Using only the fat* from the canned coconut milk, blend all ingredients. Now there are several ways to freeze the ice cream base, and there are several ways to process the ice cream.

Freezing and processing options:
-Freeze ice cream base in ice cube trays. Once frozen process in a food processor until creamy.
-Pour ice cream base into a large shallow dish (like a casserole dish). Once frozen scrape the solid mass with a fork until soft enough to serve.
-Freeze ice cream base in popsicle molds.
-Use an ice cream maker.
*Canned coconut milk will separate into fat and water. Do not shake the can and you will be able to remove the fat from the can while leaving the water at the bottom. You will need 2 cups of coconut milk fat for this recipe.
