Found yourself salivating over the chocolatey, berry, creamy goodness of this pic but have no idea what a ‘black sapote’ is? You’re forgiven. As Sally O’Neil of The Fit Foodie explains, it’s a relative of the persimmon fruit (used widely in chocolate and fruit puddings).
According to Sally, “they have four times as much Vitamin C that an orange and a great immune-boosters, and if you’ve never tried it—you’re missing out.” Quite frankly, that’s all the convincing we need! As the holiday season is fast approaching, this is the perfect guilt-free dessert if you’re entertaining or trying to cut down on refined sugar.
It’s also great as a post-dinner treat AND can even pass as a nutritious breakfast option. Yep, we’re giving you permission. Keep scrolling for the recipe and click here and here for more of Sally’s healthy sweet-tooth satisfying swaps.
