National Women's Health Day...with Tasty, Healthy Desserts!

If you are free next Wednesday between 11am and 2pm, head to Devon Esthetique's new location in Chadd's Ford for their National Women's Health and Fitness Day event.

They'll have free nutrition counseling, free chair massage, free blood pressure screenings, and more! PLUS, healthy refreshments...including some yummy raw desserts made by yours truly.

Here's the recipe for the Mexican Chocolate Truffles I'll be making for the easy and SO GOOD! Gluten and dairy free, unprocessed and without any added sugar...or any added guilt!

Guilt-Free Truffles

1 cup medjool dates, pitted and broken into quarters
1 cup walnuts
Pinch of seas salt
Dash of vanilla extract of ½ of a vanilla bean (optional)

Blend ingredients in a food processor until completely combined, when the mixture balls up and gets doughy. Roll teaspoons of the mixture into truffles or mold into a square and slice into bars. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container.
Variations: Add a few teaspoons of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg for Gingerbread Truffles.
Try ¼ cup raw cacao or carob powder for a chocolate treat. Add a dash of cayenne and a teaspoon or two of cinnamon for a Mexican Chocolate Truffle!
