A sweet treat for your valentine, be it a spouse, a partner, or bff 🙂 The pink center is so cute, and the chocolate coating is so yummy. Healthier than store bought chocolates, I guarantee!

2/3 cup berries or 1/4 cup mashed
2 slivers of beet for color
6 tbs melted coconut butter

Blend the above in a food processor untill smooth.

Scoop bite-sized amount into ice tray or muffin molds and freeze for 15 min.
Remove and form into balls.
Freeze another 10 minutes.

Make chocolate sauce to dip, mixing:
