When we think of Christmas, the thought of avoiding the post-Christmas food coma will be a key consideration for those who have rehauled their diets throughout the year. If you’re like me and enjoy maintaining a relatively fresh and nutritious diet, suddenly eating copious amount of heavy, rich, christmassy desserts can be a thick shock to the system!
Now. Chocolate cake is not usually synonymous with healthy eating, but we have good news this festive season; you can have your (raw) chocolate cake and eat it too. This Raw Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake recipe is a perfect Christmas time dessert that will satisfy those with a sweet tooth and curb the sluggish comatose late-afternoon nap on the couch.
Being healthy at this time may seem impossible, but there is no reason why nutritious, raw foods shouldn’t be enjoyed at Christmas time as well. In one of our recent posts, we explored the nutritional benefits of raw chocolate and the many ways you can incorporate it into your diet.
Christmas is an ideal time to introduce your family and friends to a new way of looking at food and the idea of cooking with raw ingredients. This is a gorgeous dessert to show the unbelievers, just how sensational raw chocolate tastes. Bon appétit cherie!
