Chocolate fudge can still be on your low carb menu with this skinny version!
We are making a concentrated effort to eat better. While we aren’t following any particular diet, we try to eat lower carb meals.
By updating one of our favorite meals, Chicken Tenders to a low carb version, supper doesn’t have to wreak havoc on our diet.
Another way we are improving what we eat is to incorporate more coconut oil into our diet.
When you eat a low-carb diet, typically treats like chocolate fudge are not on your menu. But, with this Skinny Chocolate Fudge, we can do both- eat low carb and enjoy coconut oil while still enjoying a tasty treat. It works wonderfully with the Trim Healthy Mama plan as well!
Here are the steps to creating this Skinny Chocolate Fudge!
Once you’ve turned the xylitol into a powder, you’re ready to proceed!
Lining the baking pan with plastic wrap makes for easy removal!
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
I like to top the chocolate mixture with more sliced almonds and shredded coconut.
Once the skinny chocolate has firmed up in the freezer, remove from the pan and cut into pieces.
And there you have it! Skinny Chocolate!
Another recipe I like to make is Low Carb, High Protein cookies. They are easy to make and fill you up!
And this super simple low carb black raspberry cheesecake bears repeating. Change up the berries, if desired!
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
