A sweet, mostly vegan collection of chocolate treats from the founders of Not Your Sugar Mamas.
You think you love chocolate, but do you know how much you could actually love it? In Chocolate Every Day, Bennett and Ky show chocolate for what it really is: a delicious and incredibly potent, antioxidant powerhouse filled with vitamins and nutrients. Their decadent recipes do away with the refined sugar, dairy, and gluten found in traditional chocolate treats, and instead rely on raw cacao and high-quality, unprocessed ingredients to create snacks and desserts you can actually feel good about eating. By combining raw cacao with organic, natural sweeteners, nutrient-rich fats, and superfoods like maca and lucuma, Bennett and Ky’s delicious treats pack a real health punch—and are as decadent as their traditional counterparts. Filled with tips and tricks for deciphering chocolate certifications and labels, a guide to building a superfood pantry, and more than seventy-five recipes for delectable and irresistible sweets, like Fudgsicles, No-Bake Thin Mints, Mexican Chocolate Cashew Milk, and Crunchy Salty Peanut Butter Chocolate Tart, Chocolate Every Day will give you more reasons than ever before to indulge in this beloved flavor.
On-Trend Recipes: Every recipe in the book is gluten-, dairy-, and refined sugar-free, and many are completely vegan. A number of their recipes are boosted with superfoods like maca, lucuma, and spirulina for added nutritional value and flavor.
Beautiful and Giftable: Chocolate Every Day is full of gorgeous photography. Though Bennett and Ky’s treats are filled with healthier ingredients, they all look as decadent and delicious as their traditional counterparts. Combined with the low-price point and smaller trim, this will make a great gift.
Growing Brand: NYSM has grown from a single shop on Martha’s Vineyard to include a full-service organic cafe, with plans to open a second location. The cafe currently has 50,000 fans on Facebook. NYSM chocolate bars and cookies have been sold at TJ Maxx Home Goods stores and can now be purchased on Amazon, at Whole Foods (New England), Kowalski’s Markets, and Balducci’s.
