Low Carb Chocolate
Have you ever had a craving for Dark Chocolate but wanted to stay on your diet? Here is the answer to your dream of having both. This recipe takes about 10 minutes to make and everyone will love it! Dr J’s Low Carb Chocolate:
- 6 Squares of bakers chocolate – unsweetened
- 3/4 stick of organic butter
- Stevia (natural sweetener)
- Xylitol (natural sweetener)
- Vanilla Extract
Place the chocolate in a glass baking dish lining the bottom of the dish with the squares. Put it over a very low fire to slowly melt the chocolate. When it is 1/2 melted, add the butter cut into small squares to melt quickly. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of Stevia pure white powder. Add 4 tablespoons of Xylitol. Finally mix in 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla. Stir the mix and then place it in the freezer for about 1/2 hour. That’s all there is to it!
For fun, you can add Almonds, small amounts of raisins (high in carbs!), and I like to substitute peanut butter for butter and make a peanut dark chocolate. This will help you stay on a low carb diet and not miss the occasional chocolate fix!
