A sweet, mostly vegan collection of chocolate treats from the founders of Not Your Sugar Mamas.
You think you love chocolate, but do you know how much you could actually love it? In Chocolate Every Day, Bennett and Ky show chocolate for what it really is: a delicious and incredibly potent, antioxidant powerhouse filled with vitamins and nutrients. Their decadent recipes do away with the refined sugar, dairy, and gluten found in traditional chocolate treats, and instead rely on raw cacao and high-quality, unprocessed ingredients to create snacks and desserts you can actually feel good about eating. By combining raw cacao with organic, natural sweeteners, nutrient-rich fats, and superfoods like maca and lucuma, Bennett and Ky's delicious treats pack a real health punch--and are as decadent as their traditional counterparts. Filled with tips and tricks for deciphering chocolate certifications and labels, a guide to building a superfood pantry, and more than seventy-five recipes for delectable and irresistible sweets, like Fudgsicles, No-Bake Thin Mints, Mexican Chocolate Cashew Milk, and Crunchy Salty Peanut Butter Chocolate Tart, Chocolate Every Day will give you more reasons than ever before to indulge in this beloved flavor.
In this creative, health-minded take on a sweet treat, Coffey and Keenan, cofounders of Not Your Sugar Mamas chocolate company, helpfully compile more than 85 inspired chocolate recipes that strip the treat's traditional additives in order to reap the healthfulness of cacao beans. The authors rely on raw cacao and other superfoods to produce healthy renditions of chocolate staples: coconut flour and oat flour help form the cake base for tiramisu; maple syrup sweetens almond butter cups (the authors' version of the Reese's candy); and coconut milk and cashews add a perfect amount of creaminess for fudgesicles. Other highlights include mint chocolate chip smoothies, churro waffles with chocolate dipping sauce, brownie trifle with caramelized bananas, and crunchy salty peanut butter chocolate tart. With fruit and nut ingredients, such as orange zest for chocolaty orange scones, pomegranate seeds for chocolate bark, and peanut butter and honey frosting for chocolate cupcakes, this book is filled with dozens of wonderful flavor combinations. Readers who wish to improve their diet while satisfying their sweet tooth will enjoy this.
