Ok, this is still a work in progress, and I'm posting it in order to get feedback.

I love chocolate...and have trained myself to only eat small amounts of gourmet dark chocolate...along with small amounts of almond milk/cocoa/protein powder for quick snacks....though occasionally I get a bit of a craving.

I made the coconut milk and frozen berries dessert (from the Performance Menu) the other night...and started to wonder if I could do something with cocoa and coconut milk. The next night I set out with some experimenting, this is what I came up with....its sort of a cocoa/coconut milk mouse:

- 1 can coconut milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- small handful of Dagoba cocoa chips (fancy chocolate chips I raided from the wife's baking supplies...:rofl:
- 1 big TBS of cashew nut butter

Throw it all in the blender and mix it up...poor into bowls and freeze for about 1/5 hours...tasty!

Someone give it a try and see if it works out for you. I have no idea what the nutritional info is on it...though I know its got a lot of fat :proud:

Ted,
I'm right there with you man.
Dark Chocolate is my one real consistent non-fitness-ish food.
I''m psyched to try the recipe.

Sounds good Ted....question: "freeze for about 1/5 hours"? Is that 1-5 hours or 12 minutes?

Dark chocolate is the greatest substance consumed by man.

At this very moment, I am trying to figure out a way to rig my Camelbak to hold pure chocolate.



This sounds so good. I will have to give it a try.

Any big difference between cashew butter and almond butter?

Oooh man...never thought of a hydration bladder full of chocolate...mmmm....how about a Chocolate M'ood from Jamba Juice?

I don't think there'd be a big difference with either one of those...I just had cashew butter around, and needed to use it to thicken the recipe up.

cashews have more carbs per unit weight than almonds. almonds have more fiber than cashews. Depending on what you are making or the nutrient ratio you are after, this could make a difference. In these candies, I can't see that it would, unless one is oilier than the other (haven't had the butters).

Okay, I think 72 chocolate bunnies will fit in my camelbak.

Now, how to keep them molten. . .
