Have you tried a cake without chocolate that tastes even better without it?
If you are addicted to chocolate, but you want a lighter dessert for a change, then you are in the right place.
Once you try this, you may never want chocolate cake because first this is delicious, second it is nutritious, and third it looks very good!
Sometimes you hear people complaining that they cannot find a healthy recipe for a cake with chocolate among the other ingredients. That is why, I have chosen this easy-to-prepare fruit cake for your dessert menu.
Before I show you the recipe, I want to tell you some basic things about apples, apricots and cinnamon.
Dietitians know that apples have surprising nutritional benefits that justify the “apple a day” adage. Here are some nutritional boons of eating apples: you get whiter, healthier teeth, you curb all sorts of cancers, you decrease your risk of diabetes, you reduce your bad cholesterol, you prevent gallstones and cataracts, you avert hemorrhoids, you detoxify your liver, etc.
Apricots are also a good source of vitamin C, known to ward off vision problems, promote healthy skin and mucus membranes, protect against lung and mouth cancers, and provide even more free radical-scavenging activity in your body.
Flavonoids such as lutein and beta cryptoxanthins have such a high number of benefits that they can actually help slow and even prevent age-related debilities and diseases. Other phytochemicals, which apricots contain in abundance, have the ability to prevent heart disease while the dietary fibers keep your system running smoothly.
What’s more, the potassium in apricots helps regulate your heart rate and blood pressure!
Cinnamon also has a whole range of health benefits. Importantly it may lower blood sugar in people with diabetes (both type 1 or type 2). It helps in treating muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, fungal infections, the common cold, loss of appetite, and erectile dysfunction.
It lowers the negative effects of high fat meals and takes care of other serous conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and even HIV.
I hope I persuaded you to forget about your calorie-packed chocolate dessert, at least for a while.
