I love adding fruit to this recipe. It goes well with tostones, berries, and more.  

With tostones, I feel like I am almost eating a tiramisu cake - obviously without the grains, dairy, and eggs. If you want to use less sugar, feel free to not add the honey part when eating them with tostones. Riped plantains are super sweet to me, so they may be just enough sweetness for you - especially if you do not normally eat added sugars. 

If you don't like the taste of almonds, replace the extract with more vanilla or just leave this part out.  Feel free to experiment with other extracts (ex. orange extract) too.  

Lastly, chocolate can be a powerful energy shifter.  The Aztec soldiers used it as a source of energy.  If you know you are a slow phase I metabolizer (read my other article on liver detoxification), you may want be careful with how much chocolate you eat late at night, since it can impact the quality of your sleep.
