LEAN LOW CARB CHOCOLATE DIPPED STRAWBERRIES!!
I am sure you are no stranger to Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, but I bet you didn’t know we could make LEAN version without sacrificing taste and texture!! These are a great, romantic, way to end off your Valentine’s Day evening without a HUGE whoopsie! First of all, Strawberries are a great source of antioxidants which help cleanse your system of toxins and help you feel leanmazing!! Also, strawberries are a nice little help to boost your immune system and regulate your blood sugar! The Chocolate we dip is made from scratch, and is “Skinny Chocolate” which is sweetened with Stevia and has WAY less calories than your traditional chocolate! On another LEAN note, instead of using traditional icing to top off these Lean Low Carb Chocolate Dipped Strawberries which would be full of sugar, we created our own frosting with Sukrin Melis which is also sweetened with Stevia! Stevia is low in calories while still giving your sweet tooth what it wants!! It actually comes from a green leafy plan native to South America and it’s a LEAN-tastic replacement for any sugar cravings you might have!!
Finally, these are SUPER easy to make! Don’t spend all your time in the kitchen this Valentines Day. After all, it is supposed to be a day where you spend time with you sweetheart, so fire these Lean Low Carb Chocolate Dipped Strawberries, have a Romantic Valentines Day, GUILT FREE!!
