Yogi Superfood Bites
Yogi Superfood Bites
One of the reasons for sugar free is that I am trying to be more mindful of how I nourish my body.  I think this goes hand in hand with my yoga practice.  I find that the more I practice, the more thoughtful I become about my food choices.  In fact, in reflection of this, I think of the Yama Ahimsa, do no harm.  If we think about the metabolic impact of sugar, we would think twice about how often we consume it.  I am not saying, don’t ever have sugar, but it is a good idea to make more mindful choices.  The recipe has absolutely no sweeteners.  It is absolutely delicious and full of healthy fats.  Yes, we actually need fats in our diets.

I am calling these my Superfood Goji Berry & Coconut Fudge Bites. Best part, they are so easy to make, less than 15 minutes. The hardest part is waiting two hours to eat them!

This recipe makes 24 mini bites!!

Ingredients:
-1 cup coconut oil
-2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 tbsp vanilla, no alcohol
-1 ½ cups coconut, finely shredded
-½ cup goji berries

Directions:

Melt coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the remaining ingredients (except the goji berries) and stir together. Poor into mini cupcake tins for individual fudge bites and top with a goji berry. Put in freezer for 2 or more hours and then enjoy.

Have fun with this and experiment with other add-ins. My hubby loved them so much he had 3 when I wasn’t looking. He even said they tasted so much like a homemade Almond Joy that I should top with almonds next time.

Tell me in the comments what add-ins you are going to try! Don’t forget to pin this recipe.
