5 Better Ways To Eat Chocolate This Easter 

Just when you think you’re finally on track after the indulgence that is Christmas/Boxing Day/New Years Eve/New Years Day/summer/Australia Day, Easter just creeps up on you. Eggs are in the aisles in January, hot cross buns in the bakeries in March, and before you know it chocolate is back on the radar. But this doesn’t have to mean the end of your healthy new years’ resolutions (if you were still sticking to them!)

Here are five of the best ways you can eat chocolate this Easter. (They’re a little bit kinder to your body, and the planet!)

1. Loving Earth Organic Raw Creamy Coconut Mylk Chocolate

This Australian-certified organic chocolate will literally melt in your mouth and dissolve your life’s worries along with it. It’s raw, gluten-free, low-GI and vegan, which reads like a health food. But with a perfectly creamy and velvety texture, it definitely tastes like a treat – a delicious alternative for milk chocolate lovers to the often much darker raw options.

2. Pana Chocolate Coconut and Goji

Pana Chocolate make perfectly sized bars of dark, raw, chocolately goodness, and the Coconut and Goji combines a perfect fruity flavour with the almost fudgy texture. There are almost too many good things about this chocolate to list here: organic, raw, handmade, low-GI, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free, no refined sugar, fair-trade, vegan. Plus, with their stylish cardboard packaging they almost look too good to eat. But not quite.

2. The Carob Kitchen Carob Almond Bar

With all the raw, organic chocolate now available, carob almost seems old-fashioned. However, this chocolate alternative still delivers an amazing flavour, and an unexpectedly smooth texture. The addition of almonds creates a nice contrast, and provides a pleasant distraction from the different taste. It’s caffeine-free and not too sweet, which can make it all too easy to eat, so be warned.
