Megan’s Comments:

You can buy coconut butter or ‘manna’ at the store OR make it yourself simply by blending shredded coconut until creamy. I did this and you can see some of my shredded coconut still because I was impatient and did not blend all the way. Yours will look smooth and creamy if you use strait coconut butter.

I recommend warming the coconut butter jar in some hot water or in a pan with low heat so it becomes easy to scoop and blend.

You can make the chocolate two different ways:

Chocolate sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao powder (cocoa is fine)
  • few drops of stevia (or maple or honey to taste 1-2 teaspoons usually)
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil

Place all ingredients in a small pan and stir on low until sauce forms.

Or

  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup almond or coconut milk

To make the chocolate use a double boiler method. Fill a saucepan with water and bring it to a boil.

Place a glass bowl on top of the pot with the water. Add the chocolate chips and almond milk to the glass bowl and gently melt the chocolate.

Dr Jockers Comments:

Chocolate covered strawberries, this is a classic Valentine’s day treat!  With February being Heart Health month, you really couldn’t find three better foods for your cardiovascular system than chocolate, coconut and strawberries

Raw or minimally processed chocolate or cacao is rich in polyphenolic compounds such as epicatechin.  These polyphenols have profound anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects in the body.  Chocolate also has theobromine, which has a powerful cardiovascular stimulant that enhances vasodilation and oxygen delivery to various regions of the body.  Theobromine has also been shown to stimulate the production of healthy HDL cholesterol.

Coconut is the best source of medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) that enhance fat burning and reduce inflammation in the body.  These MCT’s have potent anti-microbial characteristics and help to improve capillary function in the body.

Strawberries are rich in anthocyanins and flavanol anti-oxidants that are protective of the cardiovascular system and enhance circulation and oxygenation throughout the body.

I would recommend if you are looking to reduce your sugar intake to try the recipe idea Megan gave with stevia and raw cacao powder or use the keto maple syrup I had in the recipe as that will be low carb and anti-inflammatory.
