Coconut Energy Cubes


2013/06/10 by nikkiledford

Coconut makes another guest appearance on the blog! I’m pretty sure I can’t go more than a week without developing some sort of coconut-based recipe. Clearly, I need help.

These guys are great for a post-workout snack or an early morning pre-surf boost!

Coconut Energy Cubes

1 c. coconut butter (homemade is easy! Try it here.)
1 3.5 oz. bar dark chocolate (70 percent or higher)
1/4 c. goji berries
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 c. pistachios
sea salt to taste

1 Tbsp. instant coffee crystals or ground espresso
other nuts/dried fruit
scoop of protein powder

  1. In a sauce pan, heat coconut butter on low, constantly stirring to melt.
  2. Once the butter is warm, remove from heat and add in chocolate and stir to melt. Mixture will be a bit more smooth with the addition of the chocolate.
  3. Add any nuts, dried fruit, coffee, etc.
  4. Spoon into a clean ice-cube tray.
  5. Refrigerate until set.

    Can these be left out at room temperature or do they need to be refrigerated? If I wanted to load these with a lot more seeds and nuts but chopped up real small, would it hold together?

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
