Don't let this mouthwatering photo fool you. Chocolate is a health food.

No really, it is. It has been all over the news.

We recently reported on Why You Should be Eating Chocolate and Enjoying It, but in case you missed it, here's a quick summary of some of the health benefits of eating chocolate. In moderation of course.

Chocolate is good for your heart! One study found that consuming moderate amounts of dark chocolate may reduce cardiovascular disease risk by lowering LDL/"bad" cholesterol while raising HDL/"good" cholesterol.
Dark chocolate benefits the brain. A study released in August of this year found that eating cocoa flavanols daily could improve mild cognitive impairment in older adults.
Chocolate can help you stay slim! A study came out this spring showing that people who eat chocolate frequently have a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) than those who don't.
Chocolate is also a good source of several key minerals (most notably magnesium), and is high in heart-healthy and cancer-fighting antioxidants.

Raw Chocolate Banana Pie With Whipped Coconut Cream [Vegan]

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups dates or raisins
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Filling

  • 3 peeled bananas (save one to slice)
  • 1/4 cup cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup agave/maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup nut milk (use as little as possible)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder

Coconut Whipped Cream 

  • 1 can coconut milk, put in the fridge overnight
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla pod
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia or powdered raw sugar

Preparation

  1. To make the crust, process the nuts (in your food processor) into very small crumbs and add the dates or raisins. Process until it all sticks together. Press into a pie dish and put in the freezer.
  2. To make the filling, blend all the ingredients until smooth then let it set and thicken in the fridge. When it’s thick enough, spoon into the pie crust and layer with that remaining sliced banana. Set in the fridge.
  3. To make the coconut whipped cream, put your mixing bowl and whisk in the freezer. Take the coconut milk out of the fridge and spoon off the really thick stuff on top. Put this in your mixing bowl with the stevia/sugar and vanilla seeds and whisk until it’s thick. Spread this all over your pie and let it set in the freezer or fridge for a few hours.

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

Firstly, how dare you? But if I must, as a yogini, I find myself often pondering life and the cycle it follows for all of us. We're all interconnected. For example, when I see a squirrel happily scampering up a tree, a chain reaction begins in me that causes me to lose my ever loving mind. But then, you throw me a ball, and I'm like OMG! You see? Connections. Bottom line, I hold degrees in cuddling and belly rubs from UC BARKley and HOWLvard respectively, which makes me an expert in being the happiest being ever. I run a tight ship here and only offer kisses and snuggles to those that help my fellow furry-bottomed soldiers out on the field. Namaste.
