Healthy Nutritious Dessert Recipe

Hi again. Mike here with another Lean-Body Secrets Ezine. 

Today, I have one of my never before released delicous Lean-Body desserts or snacks that always helps to satisfy my sweet tooth while at the same time getting TONS of quality nutrition.

It's my own special version of a healthy peanut-butter-fudge! If you don't like nuts or peanut butter, you can simply leave out those ingredients and make a chocolate only version. Pay attention, because there are specific ingredients that make this a LOT healthier for you than typical fudge.

I will say that this dessert / snack is not low-calorie per se, but it is loaded with quality healthy fats, some protein, LOTS of antioxidants, and is relatively low in sugar, while also containing a decent dose of fiber. Overall, it's a great snack that helps curb your appetite, fuel your muscles, loads you up on protective antioxidants, and quells that sweet tooth that often makes you overeat on refined sweets.

Geary's Lean-Body Peanut Butter Fudge

  • 3/4 cup organic coconut milk (not the watered down "light" version which just replaces some of the healthy coconut fat with water)
  • 1 bar (3-5 oz. bar works well) of quality extra dark chocolate (look for at least 70-75% cocoa content on the label)
  • 4-5 tablespoons of peanut butter or your favorite nut butter (almond butter, cashew butter, macadamia butter, etc)
  • 3/4 cup raisins (optional)
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp raw wheat germ
  • 2 Tbsp rice bran (usually only available at health food stores)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A little stevia powder to sweeten

Start by adding the coconut milk and vanilla extract to a small saucepan on very low heat. Break up the extra dark chocolate bar into chunks and add into pot. Add the nut butter and the stevia, and continuously stir until it all melts together into a smooth mixture.

Then add the raisins, almonds, wheat germ, and rice bran and stir until fully blended. Spoon/pour the fudge mixture onto some waxed paper in a dish and place in the fridge until it cools and solidifies together. Place in a closed container or cover with foil in fridge to prevent it from drying out.

Enjoy small squares for a healthy dessert and for small snacks throughout the day. This is about as good as it gets for a healthy yet delicious treat!
