Welcome to day two of 12 Days of Fitness! Below I have shared a recipe for a healthy alternative to a famous staple dessert during the holidays. I hope you all enjoy it. If you make it yourself, be sure to show us by tagging @girlgettinfit and @bodysamantix as well as hash-tagging #12daysofhealth on Instagram. If you don’t want to make this, please also share your own fun healthy alternatives!
- 3/4 cup of coconut butter
- 4-6 drops of vanilla stevia or to taste
- 1/2 tsp of peppermint extract
- 1 organic candy cane crushed
Place a medium bowl over a container of hot water and mix together coconut butter, stevia, and peppermint extract. The warm water helps the coconut oil melt and combine with the other ingredients. Mix well until completely smooth.
Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with a large piece of parchment paper or foil and pour the mixture inside. If needed, use a spatula to spread out.
Next, sprinkle pomegranate seeds, candy cane and chocolate chips onto your mixture. Place your baking dish in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.
