Sometimes you just need a desert!
When I feel this way I typically opt for some good quality organic dark chocolate and be done with it.
Other times however, I feel the need to get creative!
On these occasions I head off to the kitchen and I rarely have a plan. I just see what we have and go from there. It normally works out okay?! Although I have to admit I have had the odd shocker!
Anyway back to the cherry, almond and dark chocolate desert. . . .
Wednesday night was a creative night.
We had just got back from a challenging but fun group training session with our clients. We had some salmon and veggies for dinner. Now it was time to relax and enjoy a treat.
But what to have?
Having just trained I wanted to keep it healthy. I went to the kitchen on my mission and less than 5 mins later . . . . one of my best efforts to date!
I'm certainly no Gordon Ramsey but this creation tasted amazing.
And best of all, it is very healthy!
Here are the ingredients:
- Coconut milk
- Natural yogurt
- Frozen cherries
- Chia seeds
- 1/2 avocado
Blend 1 min (we use a ninja, it's awesome!). Pour into glass, bowl or whatever you want to use.
Then top with:
- Crushed almonds
- 90% Cocoa dark chocolate
- A drizzle of honey
It's that simple. It took me less than 5 mins. It's super healthy and tastes amazing!
Healthy deserts the easy way.
