What can I say — I’m human.

Just like you and everyone else.  And just like you, I also have sweet cravings.  Which means that, yes, I do like to indulge every now and then.  For me that usually means one of the following:

1. Ice Cream
2. Dark Chocolate
3. Fried Plantains With Chocolate Sauce.

(notice the chocolate trend?)

If I were Superwoman, these would be my kryptonite.  But like I said, I’m human. And when it comes to treating myself, I know what hits the spot and these 3 little indulges do just the trick.

So, if you’re looking to satisfy that occassional sweet tooth here’s just the recipe for ya’.

  • 1 ripe plantain (don’t be alarmed if the skin is black, that just means that it’s ready to use)
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil (for frying plantain)
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil (for chocolate sauce)
  • 4 tbs. maple syrup
  • 1 tbs. raw, organic cacao
Plantain Directions:
  1. Peel the plantain and cut the plantain at an angle in 1/4 inch thick slices.
  2. Warm-up a skillet on medium to medium high heat and add 1 tbs of coconut oil.
  3. When the pan is hot, gently place the plantain slices evenly across the the skillet.
  4. Cook the first side until they are a crispy, dark golden brown and flip over, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Gently flip over the plantains to check the other side, and remove the plantains from the skillet once both sides are a nice, warm, golden-brown.
Chocolate Sauce Directions:
  1. Slowly warm up 2 tbs. of coconut oil over LOW heat in a saucepan.
  2. Once the coconut oil is melted, add the 4 tbs. of maple syrup and stir.
  3. Slowly whisk in the 1 tbs. of raw cacao and remove from the heat once you get a smooth, thin consistency.
  4. Plate the plantains and drizzle the chocolate sauce over the plantains.
  5. Sit back, kick your feet up and ENJOY!
