Craving Chocolate on a Friday Night but Concerned about those Extra Pounds???


Don't worry, you are NOT alone.... everyone has those Friday night blues every now and then....when all your friends or your significant other have gone out clubbing, and you just felt like spending some nice, peaceful, quiet time alone at home... perhaps it's time to indulge in a nice, HEALTHY cocoa treat now.... one that will HIT THE SPOT, make you feel GREAT, but NOT add any extra pounds, in fact it may help you SHED UNWANTED POUNDS... I'm going to share this recipe with you, it is high in flavonoids, antioxidants, helps produce serotonin, high in fiber, iron, and tastes great!!! :) and for the ladies, this is a GREAT remedy for PMS... LOL

Alex's Shredded Coconut Cocoa Truffles
-1/2 cup Extra Virgin Coconut Oil ("Nutiva" is a good brand sold at Loblaws in the organic section...."Omega Nutrition" also sells this) @ room temperature
-1 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
-1 cup Frys Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
-1/2 cup Fat-Free Plain Cottage Cheese
-1 small container (single serving) Astro Zero/Silhouette Vanilla Yogurt
-2 envelopes Splenda Sweetener
-2 envelopes Stevia Herbal Sweetener (they have a french vanilla flavored one in packets that tastes GREAT)
-1 tsp. Vanilla extract

Mix all ingredients thoroughly....make sure they are all well incorporated. Spoon small truffle-sized balls onto a baking sheet w/ wax paper on it. Place in the fridge and let them harden... You can lightly sprinkle the truffles with cocoa powder or roll them in some Frys cocoa to give them that "bakery truffle" look!

ENJOY!!!
XOXOXO
