Chocolate is good, no, make that great. Oh-so-decadent and delicious, it’s one of the little things in life that makes everything just a bit better. But if you’re allergic to milk or live a dairy-free lifestyle, much of the chocolate out there on the market is off limits. This, Bombshells, is a travesty. Not only are you missing out on the rich and sexy taste, but you’re going without the fabulous health benefits like stress reduction and cell-protecting antioxidants.
Who doesn’t love licking the spatula when it’s dripping with brownie batter? Forget the boxed mixes made with fattening fudge – this recipe for brownie batter bites is super rich and chocolatey with a healthy twist, using high-quality ingredients like hemp seeds, blueberries and cacao. Blend up these bite-sized treats for yourself or someone special as a Valentine’s Day dessert that’ll satisfy your sweet tooth without adding anything extra to your midsection. Enjoy!
On Valentine’s Day, chocolates are often exchanged as gifts of the heart. From a health perspective, however, chocolates may truly be regarded gifts for the heart. Cocoa beans, from which chocolate is made, are rich in nutrients known as flavonoids. These natural chemicals—found in many other plant foods, from fruits and vegetables to nuts and seeds—function as antioxidants, or protective agents that work to defend the body’s cells from free radical damage.
When it comes to favorite holidays, we salute the concept of Valentine’s Day. Twenty-four hours devoted to love…and chocolate…and, well, more chocolate. What’s not to like?!
Whether you’re seeking a gift for a colleague, a friend, your mom or your true love, chocolate can provide a present that will be greeted with delight. And the good news: By choosing a healthy version of chocolate, you can also provide your recipient with a good dose of antioxidants and other beneficial natural nutrients.
Forget love…chocolate is in the air this month! Whip up a batch of creamy, dreamy fudge when you crave the taste but don’t want the guilt. Unlike traditional recipes, this vegan version is made without condensed milk or milk chocolate. The perfect blend of ripe banana, coconut oil and raw cacao makes it a healthy treat to share with your sweetheart (or keep it all to yourself — we won’t judge!).
Sometimes “just a bite” is enough to silence a sweet tooth or tide you over until your next meal. That’s when you need these quick-to-make morsels! In a matter of minutes, you can be munching on a mini-sized dessert or wholesome snack, made with superfoods raw cacao, raw honey and flax plus a blend of healthy nut butters.
Food is everywhere during the holidays. If you’re like everyone else, you don’t want to miss out on the fun treats all around. To avoid overindulging, it’s a good idea to keep plenty of delicious and nutritious snacks on hand. That way, you’ll feel satisfied without suffering the sugar crash that sends you back to the platter for more cookies 20 minutes after the first splurge!
