Homemade Coconut and Banana Chocolate


choc and banana

One of the first recipes that I posted was Coconut Flavored Chocolate.  I just made some additions to it which I usually do when I make the chocolate.  This is one of those things that will prove to people, that you can eat some great tasting food.  Food that if you didn’t know any better you would think it was unhealthy.  I’ve got a good friend who is a chocoholic.  He is in great shape but his eating habits aren’t so great.  He is very active and obviously has a high metabolism so he is able to keep the weight off.  Anyway, I told him to check out the chocolate recipe and now he is eating it all the time.  I am not telling you to replace all of your meals with this but still can have dessert.
