Hello. I’m Amanda. And I’m addicted to chocolate.
Unfortunately, Autumn does not allow us to have chocolate on the 21 Day Fix Extreme plan. (Although dark chocolate is allowed as an occasional treat in the original 21 Day Fix.) We’re supposed to be all EXTREME to get EXTREME results, yadda yadda yadda. Lemme tell you: not eating chocolate for 3 weeks is pretty dang extreme for me. And sometimes can cause some EXTREME behavior and mood swings. Yep. Just ask my boyfriend. Poor guy.
But…There is a way to get around this little rule, without actually cheating. Oh yes. You can actually make a chocolate treat by using foods that are listed in the 21DFX nutrition guide. And it tastes GOOD.
Do I have your attention yet?
It’s Shakeology chocolate! I won’t lie, you can add this to the list of the things I was skeptical of! I really wasn’t sure I would like this, especially after seeing the ingredients that goes into it. But it’s actually good!
The recipe is simple:
- 1 scoop of Chocolate Shakeology
- 1 spoon of melted coconut oil (zap in the microwave for a few seconds)
Stir it up to mix, and then spread it on a sheet of wax paper and put into the freezer until solid.
I broke it into chunks and basically enjoyed a chocolate bar with zero guilt.
The coconut oil is a healthy fat (tsp) and the Shakeology serving is a protein (red). You can also add in some peanut butter, PB2 or other nuts to add variety. I think maybe some almond slivers or chopped unsalted peanuts may be good next time? I like crunchy textures, so that is right up my alley.
Try it and let me know what you think! Drop a comment below or send me an email. If you find another cool variation (as long as it’s Fix approved!) let me know and I’ll add it to this post for others to try. 🙂
If you want to try it and don’t have Shakeology, hit me up for the details on how to score your own!!!!
