Wondering what some of the world’s healthiest celebrities fuel their bodies with? Look no further… Here are seven mouthwa tering and healthy recipes by Chef Kate McAloon, the personal chef of celebrity clients such as Miranda Kerr, Gwyneth Pa ltrow, Meg Ryan and many more. 

 

Vital Chocolate Fudge
This recipe makes guilt-free fudge that is actually good for you. We have used Chocolate Vital Protein, but you may want to use Plain or Vanilla Vital Protein instead. Add 2-3 tbsp more cocoa powder and 2-3 tbsp honey, if using these alternative powders. 

1 cup (250 ml) macadamia nut or almond butter
1⁄2 cup cocoa powder (to taste)
1⁄2 cup Chocolate Vital Protein
1⁄2 cup (125 ml) honey (to taste)
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
1⁄4 tsp sea salt or Himalayan salt
Optional: 1 tsp vanilla extract 

1. Mix all ingredients together well.
2. Serve while still soft or refrigerate fudge in a square baking tray lined with baking paper to set until ready to cut and serve.

Note: You can also roll bite size pieces of fudge and refrigerate until set. When ready to serve, roll the fudge bites in cocoa powder, shredded coconut and/or chopped nuts.

 

Vital Chocolate Mousse with Avocado
This recipe is surprisingly delicious and is packed full of good-for-you fats and protein. All the kids and grownups we’ve shared this mousse with LOVE this healthy alternative!

2 ripe medium size avocados
1⁄4 cup raw unsweetened cocoa powder
1⁄2 cup Chocolate Vital Protein Powder
1⁄2 cup (125 ml) honey or (to taste)
1⁄2 tsp vanilla essence (extract)
Pinch of sea salt (to taste)

1. Cut avocados in half, remove pit and scoop the flesh out into a food processor.
2. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to stop the food processor and push the mousse down from the sides with a spatula and continue blending until well mixed.

Note: If using a hand blender, place the avocado flesh in a medium bowl and blend. Carefully add the rest of the ingredients and blend to combine well.

Variation: Substitute 1 cup Chocolate Coconut Butter for raw cocoa and follow the same method. You can also add 1⁄2-1 medium ripe banana or raspberries to this mousse as a slight variation.
