Most of us enjoy chocolate, but the chocoholics out there who cannot live without the bittersweet goodness usually eat a bit more than they should. However, in Markus Rothkranz’s video, “Make your Own Healthy Raw Vegan Chocolate and Marzipan,” he shows us that it’s possible to still enjoy the sweeter things in life without compromising our health! The lifestyle guru starts off by going through a list of ingredients you will need to make his raw vegan chocolate known as “Freezer Chocolate,” deemed so for its simple preparation.


After presenting his viewers with the six ingredients, he then leads a step-by-step tutorial on how to mix them to yield deliciously awesome results. He breaks down the benefit of each ingredient he uses but spends a tad bit more time on two: maple syrup and coconut oil. He explains that maple syrup is a natural sweetener, and it is safe for diabetics to consume in small doses, which means this chocolate is diabetic friendly. He also describes how coconut oil is a healthy fat that people should consider using in their sweets more often. Once the small lesson about what to use and what not to use is completed,


Markus then shows how to enjoy your vegan chocolaty goodness in two ways–with marzipan or with organic strawberries. It then ends on a positive note with Rothkranz reminding us that you can still eat the things you love and grew up eating but with healthy spins on them so that you are not hurting yourself in the process.
