It’s a popular known fact that coconut oil is great for moisturizing your hair and skin, but did you know that it can aide in weight-loss? Coconut oil has a long list of holistic benefits but it can also increase your energy expenditure, helping your burn more fat–especially in your abdominal area!

As soon as I learned that I could possibly lose more belly fat by consuming more coconut, I did what any person would do; I made peanut butter fudge with the main ingredient being coconut butter!


I get all of my ingredients from this wonderful site called VitaCost.com–they have the cheapest whole food ingredients and they deliver the next day!

Recipe

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
  • 2 Tbsp. Organic Honey or Agave (vegan)
  • Handful of Cocoa Nibs (sprinkling)
  • Pinch of Sea salt (sprinkling)

Directions

Add all ingredients (except cocoa nibs and salt) to a glass bowl and place over a small pot of boiling water. Stir until combined. Remove from heat and pour evenly into 7 cupcake liners. Sprinkle with nibs and let cool in the refrigerator or freezer for 2 hours. Peel off liners and enjoy!

Skinny Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Popsicles

Skinny Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Popsicles

IMG_8259[1]I was born and raised in a small town just outside of Las Vegas, NV, so I understand the desire for frozen foods when the summers are long and hot! I don’t know about you, but my “popsicle eating days without gaining a pound” are long gone. However, the cravings remain.

I found these adorable popsicle molds at Marshals for 6 bucks and I knew right away what I had to do. I needed to create a popsicle that was beneficial after a workout because that’s usually the time of day when I’m the hottest or sweatiest or just plain want something cold to eat.

Each popsicle has only 179 calories, 15 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat and only 6 carbohydrates (and that’s including the chocolate!).


So here it is, only four ingredients and you can easily adapt this recipe for different flavor popsicles by using your favorite protein.

  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 Scoop Peanut Butter Protein Powder (I used Quest)
  • 1/4 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt
  • 4 tbsp. Dark Chocolate Fudge Coconut Butter (I used Nikki’s Coconut Butter)

Whisk together milk, protein powder and yogurt then pour into molds. The recipe should make about 4 popsicles depending the size of your molds. Freeze for at least 6 hours. Run molds under hot water for a few seconds before removing. Dip popsicles in semi melted coconut butter and returned to freezer for 5 minutes before serving. Optional: shredded coconut and chocolate chip garnish.
