Ok, I’ll be honest. I created this recipe out of laziness. I wasn’t really in the whole cooking mood, other than salt and peppering a steak and calling it an entire meal, so I made something up that would be easy. Well, that was dumb. I had to dice up fruit!!! Way more than I really wanted to do today. Fruit should be easy. That’s why I spit and laugh at watermelon. Who do you think you are watermelon? Being all sorts of pain in the ass to cut. I hate you. I’m kidding. I don’t spit at the watermelon. I hock enough loogies in the gym that I have nothing left once I get to the store. I just had to sound out loogies. Spell check doesn’t recognize that word. Nor do I.

I bite my lips when I’m anxious. I’m by my lips this very second. I wonder where my anxiety is stemming from right now…

Back on track.

Things are about to get real annoying this week. The CrossFit Games have begun. That means the only thing on my Facebook newsfeed are posts related to Camille in her swimsuit and how every man on this planet has a crush on Rich Froning. We get it people. You want to be tan and jacked. But the last thing you should be doing is professing your love for another man over the world wide web. It’s just not a smart idea. And he won’t love to you back. I’m speaking from experience people, trust me. I’m kidding. Froning isn’t my type.

I just wrote a post about Julie Foucher on my Facebook. I’m that annoying person. I hate myself.

I woke up to something extremely thrilling the other morning. My AC window unit. Not only was it making the sound of an icee machine, but it was spraying ice directly at my face. Spitting, if you will. Chunks of ice shooting like shards of glass into my face isn’t exactly what I love to wake up to. I’m kidding. It was kind of great. Temperatures are rising once again in CO. I GOTTA GET MY TAN ON FOR LAKE POWELL. I’m kinda excited. I gotta decide what I’m going to cook for 22 people on a house boat. Gotta make sure I don’t disappoint Tommy. His tattoos are intimidating. Who am I kidding? I know mine intimidate him more. That’s a joke. Check out his clothing line. His models are really good looking. Who doesn’t like creeping on good looking people?!

Cinnamon Caramel Brownie Fruit Dip

0.0 rating
PREP 20 mins
TOTAL 20 mins

INGREDIENTS :

    For the dip

    • 1/2 cup Coconut Cream Concentrate or homemade coconut butter
    • 2 tablespoons nut butter (I used sunbutter which is from sunflower seeds but almond butter would work even better)
    • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1 tablespoon raw honey
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • pinch of salt

    For the caramel

    • 12-14 medjool dates, pitted and soaked in water for an hour
    • 5-6 tablespoons canned coconut milk
    • 3 tablespoons water
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • pinch of salt
    • your choice of fruit diced up: I used bananas, apples, and even some cherries! chocolate cherries...omg.

    DIRECTIONS :

    1. Place dates in a bowl of water to soak and soften. Just enough water so it covers the dates.
    2. Once your dates have soaked for about an hour, remove them from the water, and add them to a food processor and pulse until dates have broken down (less than a minute).
    3. Then add your coconut milk tablespoon by tablespoon to the dates while the food processor is still running. Then add your water as well.
    4. Now add your vanilla extract, cinnamon, and pinch of salt and mix together.
    5. Place in fridge to cool.
    6. Now make your chocolate dip. Mix all dip ingredients in a bowl. That's really it. If you need to, heat up your coconut butter to make mixing easier.
    7. Top your chocolate dip off with your caramel. The caramel is a lot like me, bottom heavy, so it may sink. BUT IT'S OK. It will still taste delicious.
    8. Now take your fruit, dip it in the chocolate caramel dip and be merry. Fruit tastes like heaven.

      Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

      I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

      1. Let’s get one thing straight: I have a raging woman crush on Julie Foucher. That woman is in her first year of medical school and competing in the Games. There is nothing wrong with a being a Foucher Floozy. I wubs her.

        Also, this dip is going to rock my tummy.

        Finally, is this you in the “Awesome” video for Again, Faster? http://vimeo.com/11659270 . I can’t tell. Headbands are deceiving. Plus it is Boston and you don’t live here.

        1. Haha no it’s not me, but I could see where you would think that! I even have that headband haha. Too bad, i really like that video!

          1. hi i’m trying to learn more about the paleo diet. I would really like to start the paleo diet as well. I was reading and saw that pasta was not part of the paleo diet. Why is that? Forgive me im not very computer smart so i didnt know where to write to you sorry :/

            1. Grains are not part of the paleo diet and pasta is made from grains. Check out robbwolf.com and he will tell you all about why grains are not the best option.

      2. Yet another sweet treat masterpiece courtesy of JB! =) Quick question, how long do you think homemade coconut butter is good when stored in the refrigerator? I have some that I still haven’t used up from the last time that I made No Bake Sticky Apple Bars and am wondering whether it would still be suitable for use/consumption?

      3. OMG Juli i seriously laughed out loud (in my work cube none the less) about the AC window unit. I have one as well that is right above my bed. I wake up to mine spitting ice cold water at me. Not the best feeling to wake up to. You seriously r hilarious & i love reading on a daily basis. You are an inspiration to me & i strive to be at your level in CF!!

      4. It’s ok to love on Julie, Juli! 🙂 I’ve watched Julie Foucher compete here in Ann Arbor, MI… where I train. She’s a beast… Makes everything look easy and effortless.

      5. omg this looks amazing. i feel the need to leave work and immediately make this. question tho, why do you have to soak the dates? obviously id never question the wisdom of the notorious JB and id do it anyway but im curious.

      6. Correction Juli, Rich Froning DOES love me. He doesn’t know it but he does in fact LOVE ME (ok, I’ll stop being psycho now)

      7. I just realized why your website is OMG . . . OMG! Just made this and can’t wait to cool it down and try it with apples. Does licking the spoon count as a “serving?” Thanks for the great recipes!

      8. Hi, just made this and it is very tasty! The chocolate part came out super thick (I used almond butter). So thick that mine really can’t be considered a dip. Would coconut oil work to thin it out? Something else?
        Thanks!

      9. Considering how much of a sucker i am for fruit and plain ole almond butter I shudder to think how addictive adding chocolate and honey and caramel goodness into the mix would be. And here I was looking for a healthier, more binge-proof alternative! … I’m totally making this tomorrow btw.

      10. Quick question, I am planning on taking this to a small get together. Is this something that would be okay in the fridge or do I need to make it right before we leave?
