How To Make Healthy Meltaway Chocolate Chips

If you've been hanging around my blog, you know I love healthy chocolate. 

And one thing that bothers me is chocolate chips that are so hard I can hardly taste the chocolate when I chew them!

So I'm sharing a recipe with you that I learned in cooking school (yes I went to cooking school.) from my teacher Albert Kumin, one of the great pastry chefs of all time!  He was famous for his work at The Four Seasons, the CIA, The White House, and Windows on the World and, of course, his numerous awards. 

Chef Kumin always did things things the simple way when possible.  

Watch this short video for this special chocolate technique.

Healthy Ice Cream For Your Chocolate Chips

This is one of my favorite dairy-free healthy ice cream recipes.  It's from @lilsipper and it's VERY easy to make (as long as you have a high powered blender!) 

As she says, I never crave ice cream, because I eat it every day!

CLICK HERE for the original recipe (and be sure to get her new cookbook!) 

Blend in a high speed blender: 

  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 4 ice cubes
  • A spoonful of cashew butter (or any nut or seed butter or even olive oil)
  • 2 scoops of unflavored collagen powder  

And here's my variation.  

At the end of blending - instead of just stirring in chocolate chips, pour in your melted chocolate, scoop your ice cream out of the blender, eat it right away or pop it in the freezer and enjoy!  Your chocolate will have hardened into meltaway chips!

  • Loved your tips for making the soft chocolate chips for ice cream. I will also try you ice cream as I think it would create a nicer ice cream than the recipes I’ve tried so far with bananas. Adding the cashews and collagen powder might be the secret I’m guessing.
