Our fool proof plan for indulging in Easter chocolates whilst remaining healthy
Who says you can’t have your chocolate and eat it too? We know the struggles of trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle with the temptation of Easter rearing its ugly head, filling up whole aisles in supermarkets while you’re trying to buy your quinoa. That’s why we’ve put together this complete guide on how to make your Easter chocolate healthier, so you can satisfy your cravings without the guilt.
Dark Chocolate: The Healthier Choice
Let’s start with the basics. Dark chocolate is the way to go if you want to make healthier Easter chocolate choices. With less sugar and more cocoa than milk chocolate, it’s packed with health benefits. For maximum benefits, choose dark chocolate that contains at least 70% cocoa solids.
Superfoods: The Secret Ingredient
Who says chocolate can’t be healthy? Superfoods are a fantastic addition to any recipe for chocolate, adding extra nutrients and health benefits. Add some chia seeds, cacao nibs, or goji berries to your Easter chocolate for a healthier twist.
Nourishing Fillings: Not Just Delicious, But Nutritious
Choose fillings that are rich in nutrients for your Easter chocolates. Nuts, dried fruit, or even peanut butter are excellent choices that add texture and flavour while providing a healthy dose of nutrients.
Say No to Artificial Additives
Avoid artificial additives like preservatives and flavours that could negatively impact your health. Instead, opt for natural flavourings like orange zest or vanilla extract to add a burst of flavour to your Easter chocolates.
Portion Control: Moderation is Key
Finally, remember to practice portion control when indulging in your Easter chocolate. Indulging is acceptable, but only in moderation.
