Healthy Dessert

 

Feeling guilty when eating dessert?  Well, you can start feeling good right now, as this dessert recipe is 100% nutritious!

It’s actually my 17-year old daughter that gave me the idea to create this 2-part dessert.  The dark chocolate we use in this recipe is organic and has 70% cocoa content.  Everyone can make this dessert!

Take a look at the first part…

Dark Chocolate Bananas with Hemp Seeds

In this healthy dessert video, I’m using bananas but you could very easily use kiwi slices, blood orange segments (Valentine red!) or the classic strawberries.

The addition of hemp seeds in this recipe bring an interesting content of fibers and Omega-3 fatty acids.

The light nutty taste of the hemp seeds and their crunchy texture brings some originality to this recipe.

Of course, hemp seeds come from the marijuana plant but do not contain any THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the substance responsible for pharmacological effects in human.

Ideally, keeping your hemp seeds in the fridge will ensure their best nutritional performance.

         

 In your refrigerator, you can easily keep this product for a whole year.  I use it a lot in salads or  to roll our favorite chocolate energy balls.  We love hemp seeds!

 

Dark Chocolate Chia Pudding

This nutritious pudding is made in no time.  Chia pudding is soooo versatile, as long as you get the right liquid/seeds ratio, you can be creative and use whatever ingredients you feel like.  Anyone can make chia pudding!

If you use a blender, you can use dates to sweeten the recipe.   My recipe calls for maple syrup, but you could also use agave or honey if you’re not a vegan.

Your jar needs to be shaken several times for the first 2 minutes to avoid clumping (or use a whisk if you prefer).

Leaving the pudding in the fridge overnight will make it thicker.  But you could also choose to eat it sooner depending on the texture you want.

 

And because it’s Valentine’s Day, why not consider adding a drop of Tia Maria?  Or maybe black coffee if you want this treat to be a little special.

Chia seed will bring fibers, omega-3 and calcium content to this dreamy and creamy pudding.   Here are 2 brands I like.

         

 

         

Finally, here is the recipe in 2 steps.  Your loved ones will be find this dessert truly delicious (don’t tell them right away it’s also very healthy)!

Let me know how it goes…
