Well Naturally are helping people to look after themselves. If you love a decadent dessert the way I do but don’t like all the calories you should check out this recipe created by Tanya Bartolini for Well Naturally to showcase the deliciousness of their new Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Melts.
I am certainly tempted to try this one out in the near future.
(serves 3 – 4 adults)
• 1 ripe banana
• 12 dates, pitted
• 1 cup blanched almonds
• ¼ cup cocoa powder
• ½ tsp vanilla extract
• 6–8 dark chocolate melts per pudding (it makes 3 to 4 puddings in total)
• Low fat cream to serve
• Olive oil spray
Preheat fan forced oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
Spray a muffin tin with olive oil spray so the puddings do not stick.
In a high powered food processor or blender, combine all of the ingredients except for the chocolate melts, cream and olive oil spray.
Blitz the ingredients until a thick mixture/paste forms.
Half fill each muffin hole with the mixture. You are only making 3–4 puddings so you will only be filling 3–4 muffin holes.
Place chocolate melts into the mixture in each hole. Push the melts into the mixture gently. Using the remaining mixture, fill each of the puddings to the top of the hole. Use a knife to tidy up the tops of each pudding.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.
Remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
Serve each pudding whilst still warm. When you cut open the pudding the chocolate melts will ooze from the centre.
Serve each pudding with a dollop of low fat cream. These puddings are very chocolatey and very rich so the cream cuts the sweetness beautifully.

I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years, I have broadened my horizons considerably. In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews. Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS!
