I've been having a lot of fun as a part of Recipe Redux. It's hard to believe that it's been a year already since this fun challenge to dietitians to "redux" recipes started. Last year at this time I was just leaving for Texas to start my dietetic internship. Now I am living what's quite close to my dream life. I'm working in a private practice doing one-on-one nutrition counseling, for amazing clients that are trying to heal their disordered eating patterns. I'm living in one of my favorite cities, with a man I love, friends I adore and soon a puppy will be added to my family! I make a living counseling, speaking, writing and tweeting, which is pretty great! I get to run and sweat it out at barre and yoga, and enjoy some of my favorite restaurants. I am one lucky lady.
So why not share a "small bite to celebrate a big event"??
Why not a little "ice cream" for these hot summer days? With the ever so addictive Magic Shell on top? But not the one bought in stores, that's loaded with refined sweeteners and hydrogenated oils. Oh no. A really magic magic shell. That's liquid at room temperature and solid on ice cream-perfect for cracking?
"Impossible without a food lab!" You say
3/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 cup agave or maple syrup
Frozen banana ice cream or So Delicious coconut ice cream
In a hand blender, mix coconut oil, cacao powder (if you don't have the raw type, use a dark unsweetened cocoa powder) and sweetener of choice. Let sit. Pour over Ice cream. Crack away!
Have a Sweet day!
