With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s the season for love and self-care, Beauties! Whether or not you have a special Valentine, this holiday is the perfect excuse to show yourself a little extra love. And what better way to do that than to indulge in some sweet treats that taste great AND are great for you?!
I’ve pulled together some of my favorite Self-Love Dessert Recipes for Valentine’s Day that are all about cultivating self-love from the inside out. They each contain special superfoods that promote feelings of joy, increase energy and boost your True Beauty. And did I mention they taste super indulgent without weighing you down? You’re going to want to whip up one (or more!) of these sweet treats, trust me ;)
My Red Velvet Love Truffles Recipe is the perfect self-love dessert. Feel the joy of delicious, bliss-promoting raw chocolate as you bite into one of these little guys! Forget all-purpose flour, refined sugar and artificial coloring that you typically find in a red velvet recipe. Rather, these love truffles are made with nutrient-dense almond flour, fiber-filled dates and antioxidant-rich beetroot powder.
With this recipe, I’ve nixed the conventional ingredients that leave you feeling sluggish and tired, and replaced them with natural, whole food-based ingredients that will make you feel amazing! You’ll get all the indulgent taste of a red velvet dessert without all the crap. Making a batch of these truffles is a physical extension of love for yourself or others (if you choose to share ;)!
Are you the type of gal who loves a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day? Well, you’re in luck because my Spicy Beauty Chocolate Truffle Recipe takes a unique and healthy spin on regular chocolate truffles.
In essence, these delicious little bites are loaded with immunity-boosting chili and energy-opening cacao. Ancho chili peppers are the secret ingredient that help fight inflammation, clear congestion and boost immunity. Additionally, raw cacao powder provides a boost for your bliss, energy and cognitive function. What better way to show yourself love than to keep your body healthy and lifted, while taking your tastebuds on a flavor adventure?
If you’re all about sipping your self-love dessert, this Sexy Time Smoothie Recipe is for you! It’s a libido-boosting smoothie recipe that has all the right amounts of sexy and spicy. And it’s loaded with superfoods that will make you look and feel hot! Think: powerful maca for good hormone health and libido, aphrodisiacal cacao to boost bliss levels, and stimulating cayenne pepper to increase circulation.
Regardless of whether you’re spending Valentine’s Day with a special someone, you’re going to want to try this smoothie to feel like the sexy goddess you are!
Not a big chocolate fan? I’ve got another amazing self-love dessert that you’ll love – my sweet and zesty Feel Boosted Lemon Poppy Seed Bites. Poppy seeds are an amazing enhancer to boost your brain function. They’re also are a great source of minerals, like calcium, iron, and magnesium. Plus, our bodies need these minerals to regulate brain activity, develop neurons and produce neurotransmitters.
Practice self-care by giving your brain a loving boost with these sweet treats!
What’s Valentine’s Day without some decadent fudge? But not just any old fudge… my dairy-free Matcha Chocolate Fudge! The key ingredient is matcha powder, which gives this fudge its signature green color and True Beauty properties. Matcha is considered a beauty adaptogen, which helps our bodies to ward off stress…And who of us can’t benefit by reducing our stress levels?! Stress reduction and dessert is the perfect act of self-love, if you ask me!
Well Beauties, I hope you get your self-love on this Valentine’s Day! Take a hot bath, get a massage, curl up with a cup of tea… and don’t forget to make yourself some of these sweet treats. Your body, mind and spirit will thank you!
Sending you Lots of Love,
