A chocolate treat that's reminiscent of Crunch bars but free of refined sugar and packed with lots of good stuff. Cacao has antioxidants, the hazelnuts provide some protein and the coconut flakes and oil are healthy fats that boost metabolism and stabilize insulin levels. A chocolate bar you can enjoy anytime; I would suggest trying different combinations, and doing both the dark and "milk" versions. Keep in the freezer since this is a quick recipe that doesn't require tempering, therefore it will melt at room temperature.
A crowd pleasing sweet treat that's actually packed with nutrition, this chocolate mousse will be a hit wherever and whenever you serve it. If you keep the main ingredient secret, almost no one will guess that it's avocados that give this mousse body and creamy texture. Watch kids scarf it down and ask for more, not realizing there's actually green goodness in it. . . and plenty of healthy fat to keep the body energized and metabolism fired up. A dessert or snack that's great for the skin, nails and hair too. All around yummy.

This is a recipe for nut cheese, soft and creamy, made two ways.
Macadamia nuts are easy to find and high in healthy saturated fat which helps speed up metabolism. Marcona almonds are high in protein and we use them for this recipe because they come already peeled. Pine nuts and cashews would work as well.
You could also use regular almonds, but if you want them skinless (which is recommended for this recipe), it's a pretty involved project, so we'd suggest finding already peeled nuts for this versatile and delicious "cheese". Check out the serving suggestions below and enjoy!
