Desserts, we all love them. They are a big part of the connection between celebration and food. They are also one of the most nutritionally deficient “food” we eat. Think about what goes into a traditional chocolate ganache tart. The filling is dark chocolate and heavy cream. The crust? Artery clogging butter and white flour. Compare that to a tart made from anti oxidant full cacao powder, low glycemic agave and coconut oil with a coconut and almond crust. Huge difference in ingredients. That said, don’t try to convince yourself that this can replace your green smoothies. It is still dessert, just a much healthier version!
