Magic Fruit Cups

Standard

No baking, no cooking, no kneading, no way to mess this up. Truly magical.

Here’s the dessert idea that takes care of the chocolate cravings without bullying your body into a wicked sugar high. Because it doesn’t have to have any.

That’s right, you can choose to be a rebel without a cause and use some semi-sweet chocolate chips, or you can step over to the dark side and use pure chocolate (maybe 75%?), which would mean your dessert would also be dairy-free.

Either way you will find a punch of flavor and sweetness from the harmonious combination of fruits with chocolate. We’ve known for a long time that chocolate and fruits mix very well (chocolate fountains, anyone?), now just kick it up a notch with this frozen, easy and portable dessert that will have you licking your fingers under the warm summer sun.

And now that I’m done using fancy words like harmonious, let me tell you this treat fucking rocks.

 

 

Chocolatey Fruit Frozen Cups

2 Tbs coconut oil (plus more if you find you need it)

1/4 C pure dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate chips, or a combination of both

Fruits of your choosing. I used kiwi, strawberry, mango, grape, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry.

Place the coconut oil and chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave in 15 second increments, mixing well after every heating. Chop your fruit and line a muffin tin with paper cups.

Once the chocolate-oil mixture is melted, pour about 1 Tbs into a paper cup and add the fruit, making sure the fruit pieces touch the chocolate syrup so they ‘stick’. Please note you don’t have to fill the paper cup with chocolate– this would kind of defeat the purpose of a healthy dessert. Once you’re done preparing all the cups in your muffin tin, transfer into the freezer and allow to set for about 20 minutes.

 

The taste, the fresh coolness, the sweetness, the sound of your kid telling you this is the best dessert you’ve ever made, ever. See? Magic.
