Treat Your Valentine: but don’t compromise your waistline for love!

Treat Your Valentine: but don’t compromise your waistline for love!

Easy, healthy, low-carb pudding to treat your Valentine!

We all love chocolate. Especially for Valentine’s Day (because, let’s be honest, it’s a cracking excuse to indulge!) Perhaps you want to treat your Valentine (and yourself) this February without the added waistline bulge? Look no further! We have the perfect chocolate pud without the hidden calories.

Some of the ingredients may look a bit new to you. Don’t fear! We have found where you can get hold of them and at a great price, too. Not only that, but stocking up on healthier ingredients could improve your diet in other areas (especially if you do a lot of baking, try using more naturally healthy sugar alternatives!). Basically, if you have the ingredients in, you can afford to make the pudding again and we know you’ll want to!
