Chocolate sauce is the most universal topping/add-in for desserts and drinks. You can top it on fruit, ice cream, and cakes. Or mix it in your protein shake or coffee for a sweet additive.
The downside of most conventional chocolate sauces is that they are filled with junk; such as artificial sweeteners and preservatives that harm your body. So, I have a fantastic recipe for a healthy chocolate sauce that fancy’s your cravings—without all the chemicals!
This recipe is also fun to play around with the flavor. I like to add either cinnamon and allspice for a warming aspect, cayenne pepper for a Mexican chocolate imitation, or even a little orange zest for a fresh element. The flavor combinations are endless!
