Strawberry Chocolate – A Healthy Sweet Treat

Mar 29th 2015 at 11:50 PM

It is hard to find someone who doesn’t like chocolates and strawberries. You should be glad to learn that both dark chocolate and strawberry are actually good for you – especially your heart. The beneficial properties in chocolate are due to flavonoids, a compound that is primarily present in cranberries, red wine, apple and tea. These compounds act as antioxidants that protect cells from damage caused by free-radicals. Just like chocolates, strawberries also provide tons of antioxidants and Vitamin C. Together they make a healthy treat for every special occasion.

Goodness of dark chocolate

What makes the dark chocolate to retain flavonoids? It is the least processed cacao. Processing step is cut short to conserve its goodness. Additional ingredients remain the cocoa butter and powdered sugar, and milk is omitted. Darkness of the chocolate is determined by the percent of cacao – higher the percentage of cacao, stronger the taste, healthier the treat.

Whilst acting as antioxidants, chocolates also aid in relaxing blood vessels, balance hormones for healthy heart, reduce platelet activation, prevent bad cholesterol formation and prevent plaque formation. All in all, dark chocolate works to keep your heart healthy.

It may be good for healthy heart, but excess consumption of chocolates can increase the calorie intake – do mind your portions to relish the taste while enjoying the health benefits. One can relish the goodness of dark chocolates in many ways – bon bons, cupcakes, chocolate syrup, delicious strawberry dipped in dark chocolate, orange candies covered in dark chocolate melt – options are endless.

Goodness of strawberries

There are more than 600 varieties of strawberries found in different shapes and sizes. They are a rich source of Vitamin C, potassium and provide a certain amount of Folate. An interesting fact – you can get your daily dose of Vitamin C in just 8 strawberries.

In order to enjoy the goodness of strawberries, you need to learn the proper storage of this nutritious fruit. You should not wash this fruit before refrigerating. Water promotes mildew and it can make strawberries go bad a little faster. Most people and kids prefer the sweeter taste of milk chocolates which is nothing more than a sweet treat. For the health benefits, it is better to switch to the darker version of chocolates to make your mouth water and your heart smile.

Much better – bring chocolate strawberry together and relish the sweetness. Chocolate dipped strawberries make a healthy dessert for every occasion.
