We've all faced the challenge - sugar cravings can be persistent and difficult to overcome. It feels like sugar is in just about everything we eat these days, and to a large degree, it is! However, there are many ways to start reducing the amount you consume each day and work towards eliminating it from your diet. Refined sugar really has no place in a healthy diet, and can lead to unpleasant health problems if consume in too large amounts, such as weight gain, insulin resistance and blood sugar spikes, and heightened inflammation. Therefore, choosing sugar-free alternatives can still allow you to indulge your sweet tooth but without the negative consequences.

It's the perfect sugar-free dipping sauce option for diabetic like myself, those with insulin resistance or watching their weight.

Superfood Raw Cacao

Raw cacao isn't just delicious, it's a nutritional powerhouse! It's made from the cocoa bean, and harvests the healthiest part of the bean. Raw cacao is loaded with antioxidants, magnesium, and mood-boosting compounds, making it a beneficial ingredient in baking, smoothies, or chia puddings.

The Benefits For Women

Raw cacao is a rich source of iron, which can be especially beneficial for women during menstruation, perimenopause, and menopause.  The natural magnesium in cacao can help reduce mood swings and PMS symptoms, relax your nervous system and has a subtle, calming effect.

The beauty of this sugar-free dipping sauce recipe is its simplicity.  With just a few wholesome ingredients and minimal prep time, you can have delicious, healthy chocolate ready in no time. Plus, making it at home allows you to control the ingredients, ensuring you're getting the most nutrition per serving with less sugar

Indulge guilt-free with my healthy chocolate dipping sauce! Packed with superfood ingredients and naturally sweetened, all you need are a few simple staples to whip up this nutritious and delicious treat. This sugar-free dipping sauce recipe is so versatile you can use it as a drizzle sauce, hard top coating on ice cream hard or chia pots, a chocolate base for covered berries and nuts, and just about anywhere recipes call for a delicious chocolate sauce.  

Chocolate Dipping Sauce


  • 1 cup coconut oil, organic

  • 3 tbsp raw cacao powder

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 tsp cinnamon, ground

  • 4-6 drop stevia liquid (adjust to taste)

  • 1 pinch of rock salt


To make, first add the oil to a bowl and melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Once melted, add the remaining ingredients and stir well to combine. As long as the sauce mixture is warm, the coconut oil will remain runny. Taste test and adjust the sweetness to your preferences using stevia. To use the sauce, simply reheat and pour over your favourite dessert recipes.

Batch Cook & Meal Prep

If you double or triple the recipe, it can easily be batch cooked and prepared to always have a delicious choc sauce on hand. Be sure to store unused sauce in a tightly, sealed plastic tub, and keep in the fridge or freezer. To thaw from the freezer, leave in the fridge overnight, and then portion what you need to a microwave-safe dish. Melt for 30 seconds to liquify for a chocolatey drizzle, or hot choc sauce on ice cream and desserts. Use as a chocolate coating for other desserts such as covering bliss balls, or homemade protein chocolate bars. Just remember, at room temperature, the coconut oil will start to soften and may melt. For this reason, the sauce is best stored in the fridge or freezer until you need it.

Nutritionist Note

Making healthy chocolate at home allows you to choose high-quality ingredients and avoid unwanted additives or hidden sugars often found in commercially produced chocolate. While this sugar-free dipping sauce recipe is healthier than store-bought chocolate, it's still important to practice mindful consumption. Chocolate, even the healthy versions, contain calories and fat. Enjoy a reasonable serving to satisfy your sweet tooth without going overboard.
