Chocolate Chili Rub for Pork Tenderloin

  • 1 TB Chili Powder
  • 1 TB Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 TB Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to 350F. Whisk together all the ingredients in a small bowl, pour into a plastic bag, add a pork tenderloin and rub the bag to coat the meat. Roast the pork for 35 – 45 minutes or until the internal temperature is 145F. Let stand for a few minutes and then slice and serve.

***I like to serve it up on Yellow Rice and Black Beans, but you can serve it up on your favorite side.

Mexican Chocolate Mousse

  • 1/2 Cup Low Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 TB Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • Splash of Vanilla
  • 2 TB Powdered Sugar
  • Garnish with Grated Chocolate (at least 70%)

Puree all the ingredients except for the grated chocolate together in a blender. NO one will suspect its “better-for-them”!

Wine for Valentine's Day:

Pour some bubbly for the holiday! We’ve got a fun sparkler from New York State – the Finger Lakes region to enjoy with our festive and fast dinner.
