5 Sweet (and Sensible) Valentine’s Treats

February 02, 2015 3 min read

With Valentine’s Day approaching, you may find it challenging to stick to your fitness goals as it gets tempting when you are handed that box of fine chocolates. Here are some sweet, yet sensible treats that you can make and enjoy this Valentine’s Day that won’t leave you feeling guilty
  1. Dark Chocolate Strawberries. Who can resist this classic treat? There’s even a healthier way to enjoy this romantic Valentine’s treat. Instead of using milk chocolate, melt 1 bag of dark chocolate or carob chips in a small pan over medium heat. Carefully dip strawberries, one at a time, into the chocolate mixture and place on a cookie sheet or wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.m                                                                                                 0
  1. Chocolate Mousse. A soft & silky delicacy that will satisfy any sweet tooth, this chocolate mousse has one secret ingredient that makes it guilt free: Avocado! All you will need are 2 ripe avocados, ¼ cup cocoa powder, 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, 1/3 cup coconut, almond, or soy milk, 3 packets of Stevia, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Place all ingredients into a food processor and blend till smooth. Top with dark chocolate shavings or fresh raspberries. Serve chilled.                     0
  1. Black Bean Brownies. Brownies are one of my favorites to make yearly for my husband on Valentine’s Day. Over the years, I have discovered a way to make this sweet treat a bit healthier-by adding black beans! My husband could not taste the difference! You will need 1 can of black beans (rinsed & drained) and 1 box of low-fat brownie mix. (In the fall, you can make this easy two ingredient festive brownie by replacing the black beans with 1 can of pumpkin!). All you need to do is puree or blend the brownies and add directly to the dry brownie mix. I usually add 3 tbsp. of coconut oil to my batches to make them extra moist! Bake according to the boxed instructions-typically 350 degrees-for around 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean in the middle. 0
  1. Heart Shaped Protein Pancakes. For a fun and sweet Valentine’s breakfast, heart shaped pancakes will make your lover smile! All you will need is 1 scoop of your favorite vanilla protein powder, 1 banana, 2 eggs, 1 tsp cinnamon, 2 tbsp coconut milk, 1 handful of chocolate chips (optional), and 1 packet of Splenda. Mix ingredients in a large mixing bowl and heat the skillet. Using metal cookie cutters or a heart shaped skillet, you can form your pancakes into shapes of hearts. Top with fresh strawberries or raspberries and sugar free maple syrup!                                                 0
  1. Raspberry Sorbet. My husband could not eat dairy for many years due to a gastrointestinal issue so our “ice cream” quickly became sorbet instead. Raspberry sorbet is one of my favorite flavors of sorbet and it’s so easy to make at home-no special tools required! You will need 2 ½-3 cups of raspberries, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, and the juice of one lemon (squeezed). If you are a huge chocolate lover, you may even add in some dark chocolate chips! To make this sorbet, you will need to puree your raspberries in a blender (or a food processor if yours is big enough). Place the sugar and water into a saucepan and heat over low; stirring till the sugar dissolves. After 15 minutes, set the saucepan aside to let it cool down. Next add the water/sugar mixture to the blender and blend thoroughly. Lastly, pour from blender into a mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Pour the mixture into a shallow dish and freeze. After 3 hours, break the frozen sorbet into pieces and place back into the blender and blend until smooth. If you want to add the chocolate chips, now is the time. Place blended sorbet in an air tight container and place back into the freezer. Enjoy!                                                                                                Frame 414

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
