Dessert? Yes please!
With no added sugar, can I still have dessert?
In fact, I enjoy a small piece of 90% dark chocolate every day 🙂 Some other options are fruit and nuts, chia seed pudding, a small serving of plain Greek yogurt sprinkled with cinnamon OR mixed with PB2 (this makes a delicious creamy peanut butter dip for fruit).
You can also try this fantastic fall recipe for PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE MOUSSE. The sweetness here is from the natural sugar in dates.
Dates also happen to be a great source of fiber. Keep your portion size to 1/2 cup on this one – it’s easy to eat more!
3/4 cup pitted dates, soaked in warm water for 10 mins and drained
2 cups organic pumpkin puree
2 tbsp almond butter
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp flaxseed meal
Drain dates and blend all ingredients in a food processor. Best if refrigerated for at least 30 minutes before serving.
