So umm, look what I made!?!?
I made us dessert that’s basically healthy food.
Like whoaa, can I get a pat on the back or something, please???
Just kidding, but really, a healthy food dessert!! COOL!
Well healthy food to me at least, I know that everyone has their own terms when it comes to “healthy” food, BUT these tarts are so my kind of health food…hello no added sugar, no butter and not even any gluten.
See, these deserve a WHOA. And I promise, promise, promise they are soo goood. Even my chocoholic, butter loving and MAJOR carb lovin mom totally approved of these.
So you see, they have to be good.
With the warm weather finally arriving, I figured maybe a figure friendly dessert might be a good idea. I mean, if you ask me, summer is totally the time for fun and over the top desserts (hello ice cream sundaes, grilled doughnuts, milkshakes and Dairy Queen as much as possible), but that’s only because I think of summer as “No rules and ALL FUN”. Maybe this is because I still dream of summertime like I am a kid in high school, and maybe with age I will grow out of this thinking…
But I sure hope not, because thinking this way is so much fun!
I willingly admit that I wish I could stay my age for all eternity. I have learned that time literally goes by in the blink of an eye, and guys, I’m really so not cool with that.
Where is the pause button on life?
Wouldn’t that be awesome.
So, what are your weekend plans??
I have some decorating things to do around the barn so I can finally give you guys a last update, but other than that, I have nothing planned, which I am thinking is a good thing cause weekends are for re-charging.
AND chocolate. Of course.
Which brings me back to these pretty little no-bake chocolate mocha fudge and coconut tarts. Why is it that mini food is 100% more fun?? And cute!!
These tarts are completely made from whole foods, coconut, cashews, dates, vanilla and coffee make up the crust and the filling is literally just roasted cashews, cacao or cocoa powder, dates, coffee and vanilla. So simple, but these really could not be any better. I think the roasted cashews are the secret here, well the cashews, the vanilla and the coffee… they have magical properties.
And since these are healthy AND mini, clearly that means eating two (OR MORE!) is totally A-OK.
And since it’s Friday, no guilt whatsoever. Yes, please!
