P1040961How many people get a Disney Princess as an assistant in the kitchen? (actually probably most parents of young girls especially post Frozen craze) I however am very lucky to have a talented little chef to help me create and P1040963perfect recipes.  We tried out a few different batches and settled on what tasted amazing to us.  However, you and whomever you are cooking for or with may want it sweeter or a different consistency. So as usual, my measurements are not exact and I encourage you to take this base recipe and make it your own.  I will be coming out with different variations as well.  I have now eaten just about the entire batch as I write this and watching my Continuous Glucose Monitor, I can vouch that it has a great combo of fiber/protein/fat and carb and at least for me, does not spike my blood sugar!  And that makes this type 1 diabetic very happy!

Watch Vivi demonstrate how to make it on her latest episode of Vivi’s Vittles here.

Ingredients
  1. 1 can or just over 1 cup of white beans (drained and rinsed)
  2. 2 1/2 cap fulls of vanilla extract
  3. pinch of unrefined sea salt
  4. pinch of baking soda
  5. Cream or whole milk from grass fed cows if needed
  6. 2T coconut flour or almond flour
  7. 1/2 cups pecans
  8. 2 big spoonfuls of organic raw honey
  9. 1/4 cup sucanat or add more honey
  10. 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (I prefer the Enjoy Life brand)
Instructions
  1. In a food processor combine all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips. Blend until completely smooth and sweeten to taste.
  2. Add in a few chocolate chips and pulse a few times. Remove from the processor and spoon into a bowl, mix in remaining chocolate chips.
  3. If you are making this to take to a party or for someone else, double the batch because you will eat at least half while spooning in the chocolate chips.
Notes
  1. If you want to substitute pure stevia leaf or liquid stevia for part of the sweetener go right ahead! Just please don't use an artificial sugar free sweetener.
