Chocolate Covered Strawberries

July 22, 2013 2 min read

One of my favorite things to do during the summer months is purchase fresh & local food at farmer's markets! It's a great way to ensure you're getting quality produce along with helping your community & the local farms. Whenever it's warm out I find myself craving fresh juicy strawberries! One day after having a great workout at the gym, I stopped by a local Farm stand that had a huge sign reading "FRESH PICKED STRAWBERRIES." It was meant to be & totally calling my name. IMG_4743   1 Cup of Strawberries has 50 calories, 160% of your DV of Vitamin C, fiber, & antioxidants for a strong immune system. To me, fruit is like nature's candy. It's sweet & good for you too! After coming home with all of these juicy fresh strawberries, I started to think what I could do with them. The possibilities are endless really! Smoothies, baked goods, in my oats! Then chocolate covered strawberries popped in my mind and there was no turning back.

  Ingredients: 12-15 Strawberries 2 TB Dark Cocoa Powder 2 TB Melted Coconut Oil 1 TB Almond Milk A few drops of liquid stevia

(you could sub any sweetener of choice to your liking)

Sprinkle of Sea Salt - really brings out the sweetness

Make sure to rinse & dry your strawberries. The dryer the better so that the coating really sticks.  

Directions:

1) Melt the 2 TB of coconut in the microwave for about 20 seconds.

2) Combine the oil with cocoa powder & almond milk to thin it out a bit.

3) The chocolate sauce shouldn't be too runny but not too thick either!

4) Add in your sweetener, sprinkle of sea salt, & combine together.

5) Dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture & lay onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

6) Once all dipped, pop the cookie sheet into the fridge for about 45 minutes to an hour or eat right on the spot if you can't wait that long!

The coconut oil will harden leaving you with a hard shell over the strawberries.

Not only are you getting the benefits of the fruit, but you are also getting the benefits of the healthy fats from the coconut oil!

If you try these out, let me know! I'd love to hear how you like them.

Be true to you, Kasey Arena

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.

Clothing

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.
