This must be one of the quickest dessert recipes which is healthy and satisfies those sweet cravings. I got the inspiration from Max Lugavere. Tried and tested it at home- both the kids and husband loved them.
Blueberries are filled with antioxidants, contain fibre so support your digestion, boost brain health, helps fight cancer, promote heart health, reduce inflammation in the body.
I used cultivated blueberries in this recipe as this is what I happened to have in my fridge. But even better is to use the wild blueberries as they are packed even more with antioxidants.
Dark chocolate improves heart health, improves your cholesterol levels, great for brain health and blood pressure, supports eye health and is filled with anti-oxidants. Opt for a dark chocolate that has 85% or more cocoa content.
Chocolate blueberry clusters
A bar of dark chocolate (with 85% or more cocoa content)
2 cups of blueberries
Put a half a litre of water to boil in a pot. When the water starts boiling, turn the heat down a bit.
Take a bowl that fits on top of the pot
Break the chocolate pieces into a bowl. Melt the chocolate until its liquid
Take a bigger bowl, pour the washed (if store bought) blueberries in the bowl
Pour the liquid into the bowl where you have blueberries. Mix through
Take muffin paper holders, lay them on a plate and scoop the chocolate-blueberry mixture into the muffin paper holders.
Put the chocolate blueberry clusters into the fridge for a few hours.
You can also mix a little bit of melted coconut into the blueberry-chocolate mixture to give it a coconut taste before scooping and putting into the fridge.
I am sure you can try this same recipe with other berries, such as raspberries, blackberries as well.
