A Heart-Healthy Twist on Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Hey there, friends! February is here, bringing with it Valentine’s Day and the important reminder of Heart Health Month. It’s a time filled with love, but also a moment for me to share a personal story and a recipe that’s close to my heart.

Three months before my wedding, my world was rocked by the loss of my dad to a heart attack. This transformed my approach to life, love, and especially how we fuel our bodies and souls. It’s about crafting a life that’s rich in love and health, so we can be there for those we cherish, celebrating every moment to its fullest.

Today, I’m thrilled to share with you a delicious creation that symbolizes this philosophy: Protein Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. This isn’t just any treat; it’s a heart-healthy, joy-sparking, taste-bud-dancing delight that marries indulgence with well-being.

Why Opt for the Healthy and Yummy?

Heart health isn’t just a statistic; it’s a lifestyle choice that impacts every beat of our lives and the lives of those we love. While diet is a cornerstone of heart health, let’s get real: what’s life without a bit of sweetness? The key is finding that sweet spot - a harmony between nourishing our bodies and indulging our taste buds.

Try our Protein Chocolate-Covered Strawberries. This creation takes the classic love-struck treat and spins it into a heart-hugging, protein-packed treat. It’s about making smart swaps without skimping on the scrumptious.



🍓 Prepare the Strawberries: Ensure the strawberries are completely dry. Any moisture can cause the chocolate to seize up.

🍫 Melt the Chocolate: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring in between, until the chocolate is fully melted and smooth.

💪🏼 Add Protein: Stir in a scoop of The Roasted Purpose protein powder into the melted chocolate until well incorporated. If the mixture is too thick, add a little more coconut oil to thin it out.

🫕 Dip the Strawberries: Holding a strawberry by the stem, dip it into the chocolate mixture, ensuring it’s well-coated. Let the excess chocolate drip off.

❄️ Cool: Place the dipped strawberries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat with the remaining strawberries. Refrigerate the strawberries for at least 30 minutes to set the chocolate.
