This is a recipe provided by one of the Super Mum’s we have been working with who has done wonders with her gorgeous son through fabulous nutrition. This just shows you that even if your child has to go without gluten and dairy, for whatever reason, delicious treats like this are still very much possible. Diana has shared her wonderful recipe for this amazing gluten and dairy free chocolate cake and I have to say it looks stunning.
Thank you so much Diana for sharing your delicious recipe. I am going to have some very happy kids this weekend!!! x
Raw organic CACAO has over 40 times the antioxidants of blueberries and is the highest plant-based source of iron known to man, at a whopping 7.3mg per 100g. This compares to beef and lamb at 2.5mg, and spinach at 3.6mg. CACAO is also one of the highest plant-based sources of magnesium, the most deficient mineral in the Western world. Magnesium is important for a healthy heart, and helps turn glucose into energy enabling your brain to work with laser-sharp clarity and focus. One of the more surprising facts is that raw CACAO has more calcium than cow’s milk, at 160mg per 100g vs only 125mg per 100ml of milk. CACAO contains a large number of agents that increase the production of several feel-good chemicals in the brain such as dopamine and serotonin and may possibly be the reason why we reach out for a chocolate bar when we are feeling low or stressed! AVOCADOS are loaded with healthy monounsaturated fats including high levels of oleic acid (found in olive oil). They are loaded with fibre to keep our gut bugs happy and strong and contain 40% more potassium than bananas which is essential for a healthy nervous system. In addition to these conventional nutrients, AVOCADOS offer a wide range of phytonutrients to help fight cell damage.
