Vegan Valentine’s Chocolate Treat Recipes
So, before you reach for the store-bought milk chocolate or even dark chocolate sweetened with refined sugar, give those decadent yet healthy vegan Valentine’s Day recipes a chance. Should you still decide to buy vegan chocolate truffles in heart-shaped boxes opt for organic chocolate with no harmful additives, e.g. refined sugar, oils and preservatives. I’m sure you’d find vegan chocolate bars or truffle boxes with more wholesome sweeteners like coconut sugar, date sugar or stevia.

Should you want your vegan Valentine’s chocolate treat be a really chocolaty one, try my chocolaty chocolate cake! What makes it so chocolaty is that the batter has raw cacao and chopped dark chocolate in it. Furthermore, the frosting includes plenty of raw cacao powder as well. NB! As this recipes includes figs and bananas, it’s not suitable on Candida diet, in which case try my Chocolaty Vegan Brownies instead.
This here is a bit unconventional treat for vegan Valentine’s Day, but it’s totally worth a shot. My sweet potato and raw buckwheat cream is so delicious and satiating being also a much better combination for digestion than the version with bananas ( at least it’s true for me). Eat it as breakfast or dessert!
