Turtles Chocolates

healthy turtles chocolates

"Mmmm... I love Turtles!"  Just one bite and you'll discover how hard it is to resist the pecans, caramel and milk chocolate found in this Canadian tradition since 1949.

I figured out how to make and high-protein, low sugar version of Turtles.

Protein Chocolate Turtles

Healthy CHocolate Turtles


Recipe:

(makes 4 turtles)

Step 1: In a bowl, combine and hand mix the following ingredients to create the chocolate:

  • 2 TBSP of melted Raw Coconut Butter. I heated it in the microwave for 20 seconds.
  • 1 scoop of BSN ISOBURN in Chocolate Milkshake flavour
  • 4 TBSP of unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or cashew milk) Add 1 TBSP at a time: you don't want it to be too runny. Stop adding the almond milk once you achieve a viscous fudge-like consistency (see the photo below to get an idea).

Step 2:

  • Spoon the chocolate mixture into your Turtle Chocolate Mold (fill each turtle 1/3 full). Note: you don't have to use turtles molds. I was just being fancy. I recommend you spoon it onto a plate lined with a sheet of plastic wrap (make a little turtle-esque blob).
  • Chop 2 pecans into small pieces. Evenly distribute the pecans amongst the 4 turtles.  Place them on top of the first chocolate layer (see photo below)
  • Add 1/2 tsp of Walden Farms Calorie Free Caramel dip to each turtle.
  • Finish by covering the turtles with a final layer of your chocolate mixture.
  • Place in the freezer for 2 hours.  Once hardened, remove them from the turtles mold and serve. Note: I found it challenging to remove them from the turtle molds. If you don't care about presentation, then use the plastic wrap trick instead of the molds.

Note:

I recommended eating one and storing the other 3 in the freezer (individually wrapped in plastic wrap) to eat in the future. If you must, then have two. Heck, you can even have all 4, provided you obey your daily macronutrient needs and respect your daily caloric limit. Let the turtle thaw on the counter for 20 minutes before eating (you don't want to break a tooth). If you are anxious to eat it, then nuke it in the microwave for 10 seconds!
