Healthy Chocolate Desserts

Healthy chocolate desserts are not hard to bake, cook, or make. You just need the right recipe and understanding of what makes it healthy.

healthy chocolate dessertsChocolate contains healthy nutrients like flavanols that are rich in antioxidant.  If you stay away from the chocolates that have extra added sugars, and butter you will be able to create healthy chocolate desserts.

Dont misunderstand what is being said in the first paragraph. You can use healthy chocolate in a recipe and because of the other ingredients that recipes becomes a ticking time bomb of unhealthy disaster.  So to have  you have to be careful with what other ingredients you put in it.

For an example lets take the ingredients of a chocolate cream pie; 1 (9 inch) pie crust baked,  3 egg yolks beaten, 1 1/2 cups white sugar, 3 tablespoons cornstarch, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 3 cups milk, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and 1 cup frozen whipped topping thawed.   Well first off the pie crust can be made with almond flour, that cuts back on the gluten.  I am a fan of eggs, new studies show egg yolks are good for you. The sugar can be replaced with real stevia, coconut sugar, or honey.  The salt can be replaced with sea salt.  I am a fan of whole milk, new studies show it is good for you. The butter can be replaced with apple sauce, Greek yogurt, avocado, or Earth Balance. By using substitutions we can make any chocolate dessert into healthy chocolate desserts.  

In the sample above we have replaced the main components that make this unhealthy, flour, sugar, and butter. As well as replacing salt with a healthier version.  See it is easy making healthy chocolate desserts. One just needs to know about replacing all the bad ingredients with good ones or suitable replacements.
