6 chocolate dessert recipes with a fruity twist

Celebrate World Chocolate Day with these irresistible recipes.

World Chocolate Day 

 

With WW, nothing is off the menu, which is why we'll be celebrating World Chocolate Day on 7 July along with everyone else! It's a great excuse to set aside some SmartPoints® for your favorite chocolate, whether that's milk chocolate, dark chocolate, chocolate cake, chocolate cookies, or chocolate covered fruit. 

 

Fruit and chocolate

 

The NHS recommends five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Including these vitamin-packed food sources in breakfast omelettes, mid-morning snacks and lunchtime salads is a good way to get your five a day. If you're looking for something a little sweeter, fruit can also be the perfect accompaniment to a chocolate dessert.

For example, the sweet and creamy taste of white chocolate pairs well with fruits like tangy berries. Dark chocolate, known for its bitter bite, helps to neutralise sweet fruits like bananas. It also contains antioxidants and minerals including iron, magnesium and manganese, may raise 'good' HDL and lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol, and could even have a positive impact on our mood.

Make your taste buds smile with these delicious desserts, all of which have a fruity twist. From berries to cherries and oranges to bananas, discover 6 ways to add fruit to these delicious chocolate dessert recipes this World Chocolate Day.
