Stop Sugar Cravings with these 2-Ingredient Creamy Coconut Mints

Healthy Recipes - Sugar cravings? These creamy coconut mints help stop them by 1) curbing appetite and 2) keeping you satiated with healthy fats. Plus they're only 2-ingredients, and the healthy recipe is paleo, gluten-free, and vegan. The yummiest way to stop sugar cravings!


You’ll Need:


  • ½ cup organic coconut butter
  • 2 tsp organic peppermint extract


Optional: If you want to add a touch of sweetness, add 1-2 tsp of organic pure maple syrup. The healthy fat from the coconut butter will balance the natural sugars in the syrup, preventing the blood glucose spike that we want to avoid.

And you’ll also need some sort of mold. I used this food-grade silicone mold.

Instructions:



  1. Melt the coconut butter using a double boiler. If you don’t have a double boiler, simply set a heat-proof glass measuring cup or bowl in a pot filled with shallow, boiling water.
  2. After the coconut butter has melted, add the peppermint extract. Mix to combine.
  3. Pour the mixture into your mold.
  4. Set in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set.
  5. Pop the coconut mints out of the molds.
  6. Enjoy or store in the refrigerator!
