Walnut Coconut Chocolates

I love these simple chocolates. I have to have a dessert every night. I need to make my own since I have diabetes and this way I have control over how much sugar goes it. I use yacon syrup or liquid stevia. Store in the fridge until they harden and then transfer to a tin. This works well for my diabetes and does not elevate my sugars. I limit myself to 2  a day!

Cucumbers being one of them during season. I really love this shake below and it is easy to make and carry especially when I am busy and have no time to stop to eat at the markets.
