Guest post and recipe by my resident nutrition expert, Steph from The Natural Nutritionist.
This is my idea of heaven. A raw dessert that’s packed full of nutrients, requires minimal ingredients and is ready in minutes. I bet you even have all the ingredients ready to go in your pantry.
Nutritionally, what I love about this dish is that it’s high in good fats and refined sugar-free, both of which act as a natural portion control. You’re still going to need a little willpower, but what you will avoid is a blood sugar spike and the associated energy crash, cravings, over indulging and guilt. Real food is good like that.
Ingredients (Serves 4)
- 1 x 400ml can full fat coconut cream
- ½ avocado
- 1 banana
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao
- 1 pinch sea salt
- Cacao nibs, for topping
- Blend all ingredients except for cacao nibs until smooth.
- Chill in the fridge before serving. Top with cacao nibs and enjoy.
