BY FRIDAY.
ALYX: IT IS TIME TO GET COOKING,
JULIE IS STEPPING IN FOR ANDREW.
NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE THIS
DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE TREAT FOR US
, BUT IT IS NOT BAD FOR YOUR
HEART.
JULIE: FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH,
SO EACH OF THE INGREDIENTS IN
THIS RECIPE REALLY CAN BE
BENEFICIAL TO YOUR HEART, HAS
ONE OUT OF THREE AMERICANS HAS
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.
THIS PARTICULAR DESSERT WORKS IN
SEVERAL INGREDIENTS THAT ARE
GOING TO BE GOOD FOR YOUR HEART,
MAINLY DARK CHOCOLATE.
ALYX: YOU CAN INDULGE JUST A
LITTLE BIT.
JULIE: A LITTLE BIT.
WITH THE COCOA BEANS, THEY ARE
VERY HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS SO
THAT WILL HELP FOR HEART HEALTH.
HIGHER THE PERCENTAGE OF COCOA,
THE BETTER.
ALYX: THAT IS GOOD TO KNOW WHEN
YOU ARE OUT LOOKING FOR
DIFFERENT INGREDIENTS.
JULIE: ONCE YOU GET INTO 80% OR
SO, IT CAN GET BETTER BUT
60% IS
PERFECT.
YOGURT IS GOOD FOR PROBIOTICS
AND LOWERING YOUR LET PRESSURE.
BLUEBERRIES, RASPBERRIES,
ANTIOXIDANTS AND COULD RAISE
YOUR GOOD CHOLESTEROL.
WE START WITH SOME OF THE DARK
CHOCOLATE CHIPS AND PUT THOSE IN
THE MICROWAVE FOR ABOUT A
MINUTE, STIR, AND KEEP
MICROWAVING ABOUT 20 SECONDS PER
— AT A TIME.
ALYX: WHAT ARE THESE MADE
OF?
JULIE: THEY ARE JUST SWEET.
WE WILL TAKE SOME OF THOSE ONCE
WE HAVE OUR DARK CHOCOLATE
MELTED, LEAVE IT RIGHT IN THE
TRAY.
TAKE A HALF TEASPOON OR SO OF
THE CHOCOLATE AND DOLLOP SOME OF
THAT IN, AND I WILL SPREAD IT
AROUND.
THIS WILL CREATE A BARRIER SO
THEY DO NOT GET SOGGY WHEN YOU
PUT THE YOGURT IN.
ALYX: DO YOU PUT IT IN THE
FRIDGE AFTER YOU’RE DONE?
JULIE: I PUT IT IN
THE FREEZER
FOR ABOUT 15 SECONDS OR SO.
WE TAKE THE RASPBERRY GREEK
YOGURT, WHICH IS HIGH IN PROTEIN
.
AFTER THEY ARE IN THE FREEZER,
THEY WILL HARDEN A LITTLE BIT
AND YOU CAN DOLLOP THE YOGURT
RIGHT IN.
ALYX: BEAUTIFUL.
JULIE: WE ARE GOING TO TAKE
A
RASPBERRY, PUT THAT ON TOP, AND
PUT THAT RIGHT IN THE TRAY.
ONCE WE ARE FINISHED, WE WILL
TAKE THE REST OF THE DARK
CHOCOLATE, TAKE A FORK, AND YOU
CAN DRIZZLE IT OVER THE TOP.
ALYX: TO GIVE IT THAT FINISHING
TOUCH.
JULIE: IT IS FANCIER.
AND ONLY 50 CALORIES APIECE.
ALYX: DID YOU HEAR THAT?
JULIE: EASY ENOUGH FOR KIDS TO
MAKE.
YOU CAN MAKE THEM AND HAVE THEM
WHENEVER.
