Sticking to a rigid diet 24/7 is not only mind-numbing but it can lead to such frustration that you abandon your regimen altogether.
In short, it’s a good idea to indulge in a few tasty yet healthy treats in order to trick your body into thinking you’re getting the cheat feast it craves.
This easy-to-make recipe for chocolate fruit and nut fudge comes from Guittard Chocolate. Perfect for sticking to your macros, it’s free from gluten, dairy and refined sugars.
The tasty concoction is made using coconut milk, whole nut butter and 100% Guittard Chocolate.

Step 2: Place the chocolate in heatproof bowl.
Step 3: Pour the coconut milk, sweetener and nut butter into a saucepan over a low heat, stir and allow it to reach a simmer.
