This Valentines Day is sure to be filled with chocolates, cookies, fudge and more... for many people. But what about those fit couples and couples who want a treat, but not get off track from their goals? Is that you?!
I mean, we're less than 2 months into the year. If you started this new year with specific fitness goals, this day could be the end to all that progress!!! All that hard work for nothing!
Well, probably not...that's a bit excessive.
But it COULD be a hiccup in your journey, and why not just eat healthful desserts that taste great and benefit your goals?
That's why we're here, to help you Indulge...Without the Bulge!

Estimated macros at the bottom.
Here's what you'll need...
Scale (helpful, but not necessary)
Dried beans, dry rice or pie weights
10 servings (140g) Fine Almond Flour
5 servings (45g) Arrow Root Power
1 serving (14g) Flax Seed
2 Tbsp (35g) Water
Pinch of salt
1 small scoop (about 1/10 of a pint) Six-Pack Creamery Lean Mean Vanilla Bean
Quick spread of Vanilla Greek Yogurt, Cocoa Dusting, Whipped Cream and Strawberry
- Mix both the flax seed and water and let sit for about 5 minutes
- While the flax is absorbing the water, place the Arrow Root and Almond Flour in a bowl
- After the flax sits for 5 minutes, add to Arrow Root and Almond Flour and mix
- After mixing a bit with a spoon you'll want to start kneading the dough with your hands until it turns into a softer dough. It should not be sticking to your hands at all.
- Make 5 evenly sized balls of dough and press them out as flat as you can with your hands. Then, spread the dough into a cupcake pan making 5 different crusts.
- Once you have 5 crusts in the pan, use parchment paper to cover each and fill with pie weights, dried beans or rice to keep the crusts shape.
- Then place the tray into the freezer for 20 minutes and at this time set the oven to bake at 400 degrees.
- After 20 minutes in the freezer, bake in the oven for about 15 minutes.
- When the crust is nearly done, pull out your pint of Six-Pack Creamery and let it get soft.
The crusts will be a little crunchy at the edge but nicely baked throughout. Like below. Bake for less time for a softer crust.
Let cool and then fill with a scoop of Six-Pack Creamery and top with Greek Yogurt (as the icing) and a dusting of cocoa.
Then, dress it up a bit for your loved one on this holiday...
