Easter is about celebrating Jesus’ resurrection, but it is also about enjoying a meal (and, if you feel inspired, an egg hunt) with family. That means roast meats, delicious sides and plenty of desserts. But what if you are on a low-sugar diet and are looking for a low-sugar Easter treat? Chocolates made with coconut oil are healthier than traditional options while still being sweet. The ingredient is loaded with healthy fats, will help your body produce good cholesterol and can help you lose weight and belly fat. It also melts fast, saving you time. This is a must when it comes to making a big meal that that for Easter, since you likely want to maximize your time spent together as a family. Check out these recipes to make dessert a little bit better this year.
