1. Chia seed pudding. There are a variety of ways to make this however, the basic idea is that you soak 2-3 tablespoons of chia seeds in coconut or almond milk for 2-3 hours. You can then add whatever you want to it. Personally I like to add 1 tablespoon of chocolate flavored stevia and eat as is. You can also add some frozen fruit to it or raw cocoa powder if you want an even stronger chocolate taste.

2. Raw cocoa shake. I make this by blending almond or coconut milk with 1 frozen banana and 1 scoop of raw cocoa powder or chocolate protein powder shake. It’s so good and good for you.

3. Fresh fruit with coconut milk whipped cream. You can make whipped cream with coconut milk by pouring it into a bowl and then whipping it with a mixer. Then you can serve it with fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. When pineapple or peaches are in season you can use those too. Then you add a scoop or raw cocoa. Hmm, so good.

4. Gluten free waffles or pancakes with some cocoa powder added into the mix. This is my favorite gluten free mix. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pancake Mix, 22-Ounce Packages (Pack of 4)

5. Dairy free chocolate pudding. Make this by whipping together raw cocoa powder and coconut milk.

Do you crave chocolate? I know that I do and while my cravings are getting less since I found out about my long list of food allergies and my other health challenges and since I began eating a lot healthier, I still crave chocolate from time to time. Since most chocolate and many chocolate items such as candy bars and cookies have either gluten and or dairy in them, this makes it challenging to satisfy my chocolate cravings without eating things that aren’t good for my health. I also have to watch my sugar intake. So here are a few recipes and tips I have used to still get my chocolate kick.

1. Blend coconut milk, banana and raw cocoa and drink it. This is really good and always works for me. Plus it’s much healthier than a chocolate candy bar. Sometimes I’ll also had a few drops of stevia.

2. Use chocolate flavored stevia in tea, coconut milk, or in smoothies and anywhere else that it would taste good.

3. Buy and eat only pure raw cocoa bars of chocolate. You can usually find these at Whole Foods and at other health food stores.

4. Make hot chocolate with raw cocoa beans that you grind.

5. Add cocoa powder to your smoothies and other recipes as appropriate.

6. Visualize eating something with chocolate.

7. Burn a chocolate scented candle or otherwise find a way to smell chocolate.
