You can find this Crazy Easy Chocolate recipe here. This time I used cashew nuts and millet pops for filling.
Some health benefits of the ingredients:
Cashews are high in protein but more importantly, high in heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, including oleic and palmitoleic acids. Cashews are also a good source of magnesium, which plays an important role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body including the metabolism of food and synthesis of fatty acids and proteins. Cashews are one of the few food sources that are high in copper. Copper is a mineral which is needed very little, but despite that fact, copper deficiency can cause severe problems such as lower bone mineral density and an increased risk of osteoporosis. Copper is also important for a production of collagen and elastin, which are major structural components of our bodies. Cashews are also rich in antioxidants and zinc, that can both boost the immune system. Antioxidants sweep through the cell, neutralising free radicals that can cause cellular damage. Some of the most potent antioxidants include vitamins E and K. Cashews contain both of the vitamins, helping your body fight off oxidative damage. Cashew nuts might also help with preventing gallstones.
Puffed millet is a type of grain, usually sold as a breakfast cereal and it’s gluten-free. Even though millet is very nutritious, these pops contain only a small dose of certain key vitamins and minerals, such as folic acid, iron, zink and phosphorus. Millet Pops are more for the textrure in this recipe.
