Here’s a much healthier take on an easy dessert that will make everyone happy. This is a great addition to any party, at home or at the office, for both adults and children alike.
Fondue makes a comeback every few years. It has a certain retro charm. However, it isn’t always the lightest option if you’re opting for the classic cheese variety. But it is possible to play around with the idea of fondue and put slightly more modern health conscious twists on it.
With this recipe, we’re just talking about dessert fondue for now. If you have a fondue set in your kitchen cupboard, now is the time to dust it off and use it. However, if you do not already own one, there is no need to panic. You can instead use a hot serving dish or even just a double boiler.
Make sure you have long fondue forks or stainless steel skewers before you begin. You will need those to dip the fruit.
1/2 cup Omega Nutrition Coconut Oil
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tbsp Omega Nutrition Pumpkin Seed Butter
1/2 tbsp organic dark maple syrup
1 tsp organic vanilla extract
1/4 pink Himalayan salt
A plate of fresh organic fruit, such as strawberries, bananas, apples, grapes, or mandarin orange segments. If available, chunks of tropical fruit also work well. Make sure your fruit pieces are bite sized or close to it.
If you are using a double boiler, then it is simply a matter of adding all of your ingredients to it and stirring until melted and well combined.
If you don’t have a double boiler, you can do this in a small saucepan. Make sure to stir continuously, and in this case, I would advise adding the cocoa powder last, once everything else has melted. You do not want to burn the cocoa powder.
You can add the finished results to your fondue pot or a hot serving dish and place on the table with your fruit and your forks. Just like that, you now have a fondue party!
