Hope you are surviving the weather wherever you are! It is unseasonably warm here in San Diego and we are loving it! We found ourselves sprawled out on our yoga mats in the warm sunshine these last couple of days soaking it up. I forget how much the warmth makes a difference when stretching, icaramba it feels nice. I have been trying to get more active with the start to the new year (are you?) and found myself taking a nice long walk. What are you doing for exercise? We've been trying to learn a few new yoga poses to bring it up a notch! We also like to incorporate hand weights with our walks adding Tai Chi movements, lunges, jump backs etc. It feels so good to get moving!
It also feels good to have a sweet treat! If you are still up and have a sweet hankering then I have just the right fix for you! It only takes 5 healthy ingredients some of which posses super food qualities! It is gluten-free, practically raw (less PB), and VEGAN! It only takes 5 minutes to create, 10 minutes in the freezer makes a delicious difference!
What do you need? 1 avocado, raw cacao powder, agave syrup, nut butter and a pinch of stevia. Bonus - top with your favorite treat! A frozen berry or... a chocolate covered something special! I opted for the latter...
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Lets do this..!
That's it! ~ A not so guilty dessert made with an avocado base! Imagine.... this on top of vegan brownies, layered vegan cake, as a filling in a cupcake, in a layered parfait...! Plus Raw Cacao is known as a super food! It is a fantastic source of magnesium, one of the richest antioxidant source, an all natural anti-depressant, and helps diminish the appetite so can aid in weight loss! Say what? I'm SO loving cacao, I'm getting my chocolate fix and a health fix - heck yah!
Dessert for two ~ isn't eating healthy fun?
