Blend 4 bananas, 3/4 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup raw cacao powder, a dash of cayenne and 1/4 tsp cinnamon until smooth. Pour the mix into a 8x8 baking dish lined with parchment paper and freeze for 2 hrs. Remove, cut into bite-size squares and enjoy. This is the best and natural way to enjoy chocolate without any added dairy that can create havoc with your thyroid.

I am a lover of chocolate. I am also a lover of coconut oil, and the two combined make heaven. I cannot tell you how many times I want to buy fudge, but it has dairy, and dairy and I are not friends.

I remember being 18 years old and the creamer in my coffee started to bother me. I always had digestive issues, but when I started college, and the stress of school began, my gut issues worsened.

The research is profound when it comes to the gut and brain connection. A stressed mind may cause stressed and inflamed gut. I do not believe I can wipe out of my autoimmune problems, but I believe I can keep my stress levels down, so my gut does not get inflamed.

Learning what foods are good for me has been vital. I have done so many elimination diets, which is why I offer them seasonally to my clients online and in my 1:1 practice. Giving up grains and dairy were a biggie and oh yeah…the soy lattes at Starbucks!

Yes, I was that girl sucking away the soy because I thought that was better for me than the dairy, but I was wrong. Soy was the worst for my thyroid, and it has taken me years to get my hormones functioning again. I make this chocolate fudge recipe instead of getting the stuff that I know would not be good for me.

Dairy and thyroid are not best friends either. So, if you have any thyroid issues, say bye bye to the dairy and I bet, you will feel better.
