  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the coconut milk, maple syrup, and skim the cream out of the coconut cream can. Using a mixer, combine until smooth.

  2. Stir in the hemps seeds, 3/4c of blueberries, 3/4c strawberries, and 1/2c pistachios (save the rest for topping). 

  3. Spread parchment paper on a baking sheet. Pour half of the coconut-fruit mixture on the parchment paper and spread evenly with ~3/4-inch thickness.
