Simple Chocolate Sauce

For the past few weeks, I’ve had fleeting thoughts of banana splits. Now this is unsual because;

1. I don’t eat dairy which means I’m not a frequent ice cream consumer.

2. I’ve never really been a banana split-sundae kind of girl. Even as a kid, I mostly just wanted the ice cream and not all the toppings (aka distractions).

Well, those banana split thoughts were persistent so after a weekend of fun with the In-Laws and some ice cream making, I had most of the items necessary for my banana split fix. Except one. The Chocolate Fudge! Lucky me, I had just purchased some AMAZING Valrhona cocoa powder (it’s worth it) and I had some dates left over from my ice cream making. Here’s the final result!

I impressed myself.

Simple Chocolate Sauce

6 medjool dates (fresh and gooey)
2 Tbsp 100% cocoa powder
1/4 c. almond milk

  1. I used and immersion blender and if you use a vitamix or regular blender, you might have to double the recipe.
  2. Place all ingredients in the blender (or container for immersion). Blend until smooth adding more milk to get desired consistency.

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 🥑🍋🌶🥒
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. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ 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!
