Sometimes we crave a sweet treat, and though it is important to look at why we are craving it in the first place, it is good to have a few “less damaging” options to reach out for if you are going to have it anyway. This coconut white chocolate is a simple recipe which is gluten free, diary free, sugar free and caffeine free – and is super easy to make, requiring only 2 ingredients, really!
Coconut butter (sold in a jar or as a slab in a bag)
Any other ingredients you want to add to it such as: lemon zest and lemon oil OR vanilla powder; or a few nuts and peppermint oil etc. – your imagination is your limit!
Slowly melt the coconut butter in a bain marie, on the stove top or in the microwave (be careful not to burn it), and then when melted, stir through the ingredients such as the vanilla powder or essential oils. If using nuts, spread them out on an ice cube tray or in the base of a flat plastic container. Then pour the melted coconut butter into the icecube trays or in the plastic container and refrigerate for a few hours till it forms the solid pieces. Take out of the moulds and serve up as a treat or desert!
