February 2, 2011 by Leanne Vogel March 3, 2017I have to start off by thanking each one of you for the most successful month Healthful Pursuit has had so far! January was full of great conversations, questions, and a whole bunch of introductions. Thank you all for your continued support, love, and inspiration! HP would be nothing without you! Last week we enjoyed a plethora of irresistible chocolate truffle cookies. [I’m so happy the recipe made 30 cookies so I could enjoy a couple too] Generally I bring my “blog food” into the office for my colleagues to enjoy. But not these. I wasn’t allowed to bring these. The minute Kevin bit into his first irresistible chocolate truffle cookie, I knew, you could tell… he was hooked. I was able to smuggle in 1 cookie for my friend, and fellow chocoholic, Tara. [I hope Kevin skips out on reading today’s post. If not hehe… love you!] In fear of turning around to a Kevin face covered in coconut cream and chocolate, I knew he couldn’t be anywhere near the kitchen when I made these for the first time. Lucky for us… he worked late last night. 5 minutes into making the ice cream and I was singing… Cause you’re hot then you’re cold, you’re yes then you’re no… I’m sorry if I’ve gotten that Katy Perry song stuck in your head too. But, isn’t it a good theme song for this hot n’ cold dessert? I chose to use cacao nibs instead of traditional cacao powder, which is what you’d normally see in a Hot Chocolate. Using the nibs increases the fiber content of the drink, and with all the extra sugar in there, fiber is well paired [will slow down the uptake of sugar to your blood stream]. Also, nibs are a bit less processed, so will contain more natural nutrients than it’s powdered counterpart. I’m all about the beverages this week. Stay tuned in the coming days for a Sleepy Banana Muffin Smoothie. Oh yes…
