CHOCOLATE TREAT BALLS – PHASE 3Jess Arroyo
1/2 medium-large cauliflower
4 tblspns cocoa or cocao powder
2 1/2 Tspn of stevia or to taste
1 1/2 tblspns of apple butter (used to bind mixture, but not make it too wet)
Extra cocoa or cocao powder for rolling
Grate or use food processor to turn cauliflower into rice like consistency.
Place in a bowl, cover with boiling water & cook on high in the microwave for 5 mins.
Drain & place in clean tea towel.
Being careful not to burn hand, ring as much water out as you can possibly get- you want the cauliflower dry as you can get it.
Place in a bowl & mix in cocoa/cocao powder & stevia.
Add apple butter to combine ingredients but not make mixture too wet.
Using dessert spoon full roll into a ball then into extra cocoa/cocao powder.
Place in freezer to set.
Store in fridge.
Please note – For those craving chocolate at that time of the month.
Here is a low guilty solution.
As this has no protein in them and only 10% of your fruit allowance per ball you could potentially use them as a snack.
