Who said an indulgent chocolate bowl couldn’t be good for you?

They’re wrong.

We were on a quest to find a delicious, rich and creamy, yet guilt-free chocolate treat to keep us happy and, thankfully, we found it. But how do we know it’s good for us? We spoke to Jess Sepel, clinical nutritionist and brand ambassador for Califia Farms to get the low down, and she’s created it. So get your blender ready for this addictively delicious refined sugar-free dessert chock full of fibre, good fats, healthy carbs and protein.
