Frozen chocolate coconut collagen adaptogenic cubes, anyone?

Yes please!!

GUYS. OMG. OMG. These chocolate cubes are REVOLUTIONARY!

Filled with collagen, protein, ashwaganda, coconut, almonds & Ceylon cinnamon, this is the pure definition of HEALTHY chocolate! (And wanna know the best part? Yes. You do. You don’t even need cacao powder or a melted chocolate bar to make it happen!).

So how exactly is this healthy chocolate? Fine, I give you that. It’s a valid question & concern. Let me explain!

  • The Ceylon cinnamon makes these babies anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal & anti-microbial! Cinnamon also contains tons of antioxidants & is super heart healthy!
  • The coconut (double the fun, a.k.a. oil & shreds) adds tons of healthy fats, enzymes, amino acids & brain-boosting benefits! It also adds a hint of natural sweetness!
  • The almonds add tons of healthy fats, protein & add a little crunch to the mix. The fact that these chocolate chunks are rich in protein make them a filling & satisfying pre or post-workout snack or a great afternoon pick me up!
  • They are super gut-healing thanks to the collagen & coconut! The collagen also makes them great for muscle recovery & joint pain!
  • The ashwaganda adds an adaptogenic kick to the mix! It provides a sustained source of natural energy, helps improve sleep & make it more restful & helps the adrenal glands be better able to cope & deal with feelings of stress & anxiety by helping balance & regulate stress hormones & helping the body reach its ultimate state of homeostasis;
  • In case you couldn’t already tell, these chocolates are basically a vitamin & mineral powerhouse! I can’t think of one that they DON’T contain – YES, THAT’S HOW DANG GOOD THEY ARE!!!!
  • They are freaking DELIIIIIIIICOUS. Like, MAGICALLY DELICIOUS!
  • Oh & wait, you don’t even need to melt chocolate, let alone add cacao powder! I CREATED MY OWN CHOCOLATE BABY!!!!!
  • The texture is on fleek. Like, it’s legit, CHOCOLATE. You know those chocolates you find in boxes & you wonder how one earth they are just so chocolatey & perfect? Well, yes, these are that. Literally. 

Ok, I think I’ve teased you enough. Now, let me tell you how these babies can be YOURS. ALL FREAKING YOURS. YOURS. YOURS. YOURS.
