No Added Sugar Chocolate Fruit Bowls

No Added Sugar Chocolate Fruit Bowls

This is such a fun way to serve colourful fruit and it's refined sugar free! These delicate chocolate bowls provide the perfect accompaniment to an array of nutrient- dense fruits. We've added a sprinkling of ground chia seeds and a dollop of natural yoghurt but you could use freshly whipped cream or mascarpone cheese mixed with a little honey and vanilla extract if you wish instead.

  • 6 balloons (1 balloon per person)
  • 1 1/4 cups Healtheries No Added Sugar Milk Chocolate Baking Bits
  • 1 cup of chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup of chopped banana
  • 1 cup of blueberries
  • 1 cup of chopped orange
  • 1 cup of chopped kiwifruit
  • 1 cup of grapes (other fruits can be used but please note that the nutritional information will vary slightly from what is shown in the nutrition information panel)
  • 6 tsp Healtheries Ground Chia Superfood Blend Blueberry & Blackcurrant
  • 6 Tbsp thick greek yoghurt

Method

  1. Blow up each balloon to the size you wish your 'bowl' to be. Gently rub each balloon with a paper towel greased with oil (ie, sunflower or melted coconut oil).
  2. Half fill a small saucepan with water and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the chocolate to a heat- proof bowl and place over the simmering water. Leave the chocolate to gently melt and then let it stand for one minute or so before stirring to form a smooth chocolate mixture.
  3. Gently place one balloon at a time into the chocolate mixture, carefully moving the balloon to ensure the chocolate comes up the sides of the balloon to form a 'bowl'. Place each chocolate balloon onto a tray lined with baking paper. Once all of the balloons have been coated in chocolate, place the tray into the freezer to set for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, leave the water on low heat with the remaining chocolate sitting over it to keep it warm and melted for the second coat.
  4. Once set, remove the balloons from the freezer and coat each balloon a second time, following the lines of the first coat. This will help to form a nice strong chocolate bowl. Place the balloons back into the freezer to set once again for about 15- 30 minutes. You can use the fridge but it will take longer to set.
  5. Once the second coat of chocolate has set, remove the balloons from the freezer and using the sharp point of a knife, gently pop each balloon. Carefully remove the balloon from each chocolate bowl.
  6. Add the chopped fruit to each chocolate bowl and sprinkle over the ground chia seeds and a dollop of yoghurt.

Serving Suggestions

Can also be served with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or vanilla mascarpone*, (please note that this will alter the nutrient composition from what is shown above in the nutrition information panel above). *To make vanilla mascarpone, simply mix 200g of mascarpone cheese with 2 Tbsp of honey or pure maple syrup and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
