Healthy Dessert Recipe: Chocolate Fudge Bombs

Who’s in the mood for a sweet treat, but doesn’t want to lose their wonderful low-carb environment in the body? Hooray for HEALTHY DESSERT!

If you’re saying ME, ME, ME, THIS is the healthy dessert recipe that you need to make over and over again!

I originally created this recipe when I was doing a heavy round of Ketosis to decrease the inflammation in my back (I have a severe case of scoliosis if you didn’t know). I wanted something delicious but really wanted to keep my carbs low.

So .  . . Chocolate Fudge Bombs came to be as my Healthy Dessert!

Please Note: when I create recipes, I do not use anything except looking at the ingredients I have on hand, thinking about the macronutrient balance, and then get creative in hoping it turns out! The initial recipe I made did not have honey (which decreased the carb content further), but let’s be honest: it’s not as yummy without the honey.

Should you add the honey or not? It’s up to you! Consider how “intense” you’re pushing for your goals, and consider what sugar will do in raising blood sugar–even if by a little. Remember–too much honey will turn your “healthy dessert” into an insulin spike!

Additional Notes:
  1. Don’t leave the fudge out for too long or it will soften too much. Ideal serving time is between 10-20 minutes after removing from the freezer.
  2. Pair this with raw veggies and a yogurt-based Ranch dip (like Bolthouse) and a protein (like shredded chicken) to round out a PVF meal. Orrrrrrr. . . . just eat by itself as a bedtime snack. “F” on its own is just fine if you are not terribly hungry.
Alright, let’s get into it for our delicious treat! Introducing . . .
