When I weighed nearly 300 lbs, I loved dessert. I still love dessert! The difference is I used to eat 3 or 4 Little Debbie Nutty Bars or Fudge Rounds at one sitting. Now I enjoy healthier desserts like this Mint Chocolate Pots de Creme. It’s rich and satisfying, so I don’t need to eat more than one serving. When you enjoy quality, whole foods your cravings decrease, so you are satiated.

 

 

Is Chocolate good for you?

 

There are many studies showing the benefits of chocolate, but keep in mind its DARK CHOCOLATE that is beneficial. It may lower cholesterol, prevent cognitive decline and reduce the risk of cardiovascular issues. Find out more health benefits HERE.

 

 

What are the benefits of mint?

 

Mint has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food. Using herbs and spices such as mint to add flavor when cooking can also aid in weight loss. When we are focused on weight loss we want our foods to be jam packed with flavor and that’s why I choose to add mint to this dessert.  More about mint.

 

I chose to add 1 drop of therapeutic grade Peppermint oil rather than peppermint extract because of the health benefits and concentrated flavor, but you can use extract if you want. Want to know the difference between extracts and essential oils? Click HERE.

These Mint Chocolate Pots de Creme have no cholesterol!

 

They are loaded with fiber, vitamin B, C, E and essential minerals. These healthier Pots de Creme have coconut cream instead of heavy cream.  The fatty acids in coconut cream are metabolized more rapidly by your liver than animal-based saturated fats, which may be more likely to become stored as fat. Unlike animal-based saturated fats, coconut cream is cholesterol-free and has fiber. Find out the BENEFITS OF CREAMED COCONUT.
