I don’t know about you, but choc-dipped strawberries are one of my favourite treats at Christmas time, but after two or three (read: half a dozen), I find the sugar in the chocolate leaves my teeth tingling. Here’s a version which is sugar free, dairy free and unbelievably delicious. Trust me, you won’t even notice the difference…
LUXE / HEALTH Choc-Dipped Strawberries
1/2 cup cacao
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1 tbsp. rice malt syrup
2 tbsp. almond milk
Generous crack sea salt
Punnet of strawberries, rinsed
- In a small saucepan, whisk together cacao, coconut oil, rice malt syrup, almond milk and sea salt until well combined. Take off the heat.
- Rinse and prep strawberries – either leave them whole or slice lengthways in half.
- Dip each strawberry in the melted chocolate, shaking off any excess before dipping into roughly chopped almonds or coconut (optional) and leave on a tray to set for 10 minutes.
- OR, you can ignore all that and simply dip and devour immediately!
