We are making a concentrated effort to eat better. One way we are doing that is to get more coconut oil into our diet. We are also eating low-carb, which means no sugar. Which used to mean no chocolate. Gasp! But, with this Skinny Chocolate Fudge, we can do both- eat low carb and enjoy coconut oil. It works wonderfully with the Trim Healthy Mama plan as well!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
