Today (July 7) is International Chocolate Day, so in celebration of one of the finer things in life, we’ve rounded up our favourite chocotastic delights, all with a healthy twist (hint: cacao). Eaten in moderation as part of a balanced diet, these sweet, delicious and rich treats can pack a serious health punch, since cacao is loaded with antioxidants and triggers plenty of feel-good endorphins. Happy Choco Day!
“Pana Chocolate are the masters of raw, guilt-free treats and these 45g bars are my go-to. The combination of rich cacao with pure essential cinnamon bark oil is so delicious, you won’t want to share, trust me!”
“In my opinion, salted caramel and chocolate is a match made in dessert heaven. Made with certified organic raw cacao from Peru with raw cashews, organic coconut nectar and a pinch of Pink Lake salt sourced locally from Western Victoria, this indulgent block ticks all the boxes for me.”
“Not only does this tasty protein powder satisfy my chocolate and winter comfort-food cravings, it’s also low in calories and a 100 per cent natural nutritional boost, packed with antioxidants, proteins and super greens. I like to add to my smoothies after half marathon training sessions to recharge.”
“I have a big sweet tooth and there’s just something so delicious about the combination of salty and sweet flavours in these divine, gluten free truffles! You’ll love them.”
“With a velvety-smooth texture, and a rich, satisfying taste, this ‘no added sugar dark chocolate’ bar really hits the spot.”
