Chocolate Shakeology "Delight" Frozen Candies

Frozen Chocolate Shakeology "Delight" 

You might have seen recipes for "Fat Bombs" going around.  The name just turns some people off.  Except for those following LCHF diets maybe.  Well, I've adjusted the recipe and my kids are loving it!   I use

1 cup coconut oil (melted)
1 cup almond butter
1 cup chocolate Shakeology
1/3 to 1/2 cup local honey

Mix it all together and pour into the handy candy mold that is also the plastic top of egg cartons...see photo below.  Freeze, pop into a container and store in the freezer.  

My high schooler can eat two pieces in the morning and he's not hungry after that.  Meanwhile my 12 yr old can eat 3 eggs, bacon, a can of lentil soup, and that's after one of these frozen candies!

This time I'm filling it with greenberry Shakeology for bite size frozen treats.
