Raw Homemade Chocolates

Fitness In The City - raw chocolates


Instead of buying the standard choccie from your local supermarket why not try something a little different and make your own!

Healthy, easy and simply delicious, this is an easy one to involve the kids in.

Fitness In The City - raw chocolates


¾ cup coconut oil (it needs to be liquid so if solid put jar in hot water to melt)
¾ cup agave nectar (you can also combine honey/maple syrup/agave)
1 cup of raw cocao powder (Green & Blacks organic cocao is another option)
1 tablespoon of almond butter
1/3 tsp of vanilla extract


1. Place liquid coconut oil in a bowl – if hard melt beforehand.
2. Mix all ingredients together with a hand blender until smooth.
3. Pour chocolate mixture into moulds (I use Ikea shaped icetrays) or pour into a baking dish lined with baking paper.
4. Place moulds into freezer to be set in the freezer (approx 15 minutes).
Options: add goji berries or peppermint oil for a flavour change.

Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
