Chocolate dessert recipes for healthy living
I have been debating with the chef about adding desserts such as chocolate desserts to a "wellness/spa menu" at a restaurant. Chef says chocolate is not healthy so the dessert menu includes a selection of grilled fruit, yogurt drizzles and granola toppings. Can someone please recommend some spa friendly desserts that might be a little more decadent but still healthy?
What is the definition of healthy? Low calorie, low fat, balanced fat?
For instance, I like to make cakes with ground nuts and you can use mostly egg whites, low sugar, cocoa. Not particularly low in calories, but it is all about serving size. No unnecessary saturated fats, and good nutrients. But perhaps that doesn't quite count.
- chocolate sorbet (good paired with coconut sorbet)
- chocolate dipped strawberries (or other fruit)
- a single small square of dark chocolate
- hot cocoa made with skim milk and only a little sugar or sugar substitute
