Honestly, we're all about those super nutritious smoothies in the morning, a refreshing gazpacho for lunch and a perfectly balanced broccoli rice smoked tofu stir-fry for dinner. But let's keep it real here - sometimes, that undeniable chocolate craving kicks in. Especially, you know, right before that time of the month. ;) And during perimenopause, those pesky cravings love to drop by in the days leading up to your period. It's just one of those things, right?

But before you go zooming off to the closest supermarket and loading up your trolley with a bunch of sugary treats, we've got something else in store for you.

Introducing the ultimate healthy dessert: it's delightfully creamy, naturally chocolatey, and packed with all the good stuff. And guess what? It's also a fantastic option for those pesky period cravings. You see, dark chocolate is loaded with magnesium, which works wonders for those troublesome period cramps. Talk about a win-win!

Why it’s good for you

  • Silken tofu is a superstar when it comes to plant-based protein, and it's low in fat too. And the best part is that it's completely cholesterol-free and packed with minerals and B-vitamins that your body will love.

  • Dark chocolate is heavenly goodness with a high cocoa content. Not only does it taste amazing, but it's also loaded with antioxidants that protect your cells. It also gives you a healthy dose of goodness in the form of iron, magnesium, zinc, and vitamins E, B1 and B2.

  • Daily Energy brings a complete amino acid profile to the table, plus it's loaded with 11 essential minerals, 13 vitamins, antioxidants, and fibre. It's a powerhouse of goodness that'll keep you going throughout the day.

Ingredients

Makes one serving:

150 g silken tofu
3 tbsp XbyX Daily Energy
50 g dark chocolate (or dark chocolate couverture)
1 shot espresso (optional, with or without caffeine)
Topping Fruit of choice, seeds

 

Method

  • In a blender, combine the silken tofu and XbyX Daily Energy. Pulse the mixture until it has a creamy consistency.
  • Using a water bath, melt the chocolate or couverture. Allow it to cool slightly before adding it to the silken tofu mixture.
