FIRST: thank you a million times over for your support on the recent publication of Delicious Probiotic Drinks! I’m still in a state of shock that a.) the cookbook is actually out! b.) you’re INTERESTED in it, and c.) you’re tweeting, instagramming, and facebooking photos of my book in your very own home! AAAH! It’s surreal! I’m thrilled my hunk of probiotic love has wriggled its way into your heart, home, and couch cushions. THANK YOU!
Let’s talk about…why don’t we hash out…how about we discuss… OUT WITH IIIIIIT!
Yeeeeah, about that. About Valentine’s Day. Red hearts and roses day. Sprinkles on your cupcake day. chocolate in your cereal, candy for lunch, M&Ms in your sock drawer, aphrodisiacs in your tea day.
Valentine’s Day. It’s a luuurve holiday with luuuurve food. By now, we all know I’ll stick nutrition in every nook and cranny of all things edible, so it’s no shocker that I would compile some delectable gluten-free chocolate desserts for Valentine’s Day that are healthier than your average Ho Ho.
All of these recipes are gluten-free, some are paleo, some are refined-sugar free, some are raw, some are vegan. We’ve got a smorgasbord of chocolate decadence and a mooost of these recipes are entirely beneficial to your holy temple. Just. don’t put them in your sock drawer the way you do M&Ms…mmhmm.
