If you have a sweet tooth and also want to make some healthy choices, these two concepts don’t have to be mutually exclusive. Want to know how that’s possible? Stay tuned.
Nothing better than chocolate
Do you just love chocolate? How about a creamy chocolate pudding? If you ate the prepackaged puddings of our collective childhoods that are full of artificial flavorings, sweeteners and preservatives…try this instead. It will taste better and is chock full of powerful nutrients, no added sugar and nothing artificial.
I use my high speed blender daily. It is one of my favorite appliances and ranks right up there with my slow cooker.
You can enjoy this sweet treat without feeling guilty. In fact, you can even feel a little self righteous in your choice. You’re welcome.
