Raw Treats: Mint Fondants

I have created something that will make all of you want to love me. At least if you are in to creamy, minty heaven in dark chocolate, like I am. I just had these with my hazelnut/almond latte and I can’t get over how … Wait, I need to go get one more.

The Chocolate

  • 5 tabespoons extra virgin coconut oil
  • 4-5 tablespoons raw cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons raw agave nectar
  • 1/2 teaspoon lucuma powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder

The Mint Fondant

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 tablespoons raw agave nectar
  • 2 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 3-5 drops of peppermint oil

The Directions

  • Mix the chocolate in a little bowl
  • Run the mint fondant in a food processor
  • Add peppermint a few drops at a time to adjust
  • Pour a bit of chocolate into molds / ice cube tray, mochi molds, mini cupcake cases
  • Place in freezer until hard / about 5 minutes
  • Place mint fondant / make sure it doesn’t touch the sides
  • Pour more chocolate until it reaches the top
  • Place back in freezer for about 15 minutes
  • Pop out of molds
  • Store in freezer

The best thing about these little pieces of culinary art is the fact that they are made solely from natural ingredients, which means they are not bad for you at all. Actually, the avocado, the cocoa powder and the lucuma powder provide you with lots of valuable nutrients and healthy fats. As all other treats and foods, eat these with moderation as they do contain quite a lot of (healthy, but still fatty) oil.

  1. Hiya, love your recipes! Just have a question about peppermint oil, what brand do you recommend? I was looking at iherb.com and there are tonnes or peppermint oils and extracts and some of the oils don’t seem like they are able to be ingested? Thanks 🙂

    1. Thanks! I’m using a peppermint oil from a local Danish brand. You can use any as long as you make sure it’s for consumption! Organic is best. I hope you try these out; they are delicious xx

  2. I’m not able to get lucuma powder, can I just not add it or is there a substitute that I could use? This looks like a wonderful recipe, thanks! 🙂
