The Team Sporteluxe edit: guilt-free chocolate treats


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!

Bianca’s pick:

Shop → Pana Chocolate Cinnamon $6.90

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!”


Emily’s pick:

Shop → Loving Earth Salted Caramel $6.27

“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.”


Rachel’s pick:

Shop → Bounce Super Protein Formula in Rich Cacao $49

“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.”

Shop → Alter Eco Chocolate Sea Salt Truffles $10

“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.”


Emilie’s Pick:
