Chocolate Sauce & Sweeteners

Before sharing the recipe with you, it’s important to discuss a topic often ignored in the plant-based community: sugar.

Part of the reason you must be eating a whole food, plant-based diet is to eat a nutrient-dense and health-promoting diet.

Many plant-based recipes use artificial sweeteners like maple syrup, coconut sugar, and even agave, because sugar is often seen as healthier than animal fat and animal protein.

While this is true – and there was even an experiment that cured degenerative diseases with white sugar and white rice – it does not mean that you should consume these foods.

White sugar and maple syrup, along with all the other processed sweeteners mentioned above, do not contribute to health and have almost equal nutritional value.

Because there is only a limited amount of calories in a day, it’s very important to fill them with foods that provide your body with nutrition. White sugar, maple syrup, and coconut sugar are all empty calories.

While you don’t have to avoid these sweeteners all of the time, be sure to avoid them at least most of the time. I recommend keeping them out of your house so that it’s easier to skip them.

So what sweetener should you use when preparing desserts?

The most health-promoting, nutrient-rich sweetener is a date.

Dates not only contain nutrients – they are also whole foods. This means they contain carbohydrates, protein and fat, in addition to many minerals and vitamins. Plus, they are delicious!

In a study where diabetic patients were fed dates, it was concluded that dates don’t result in a significant blood sugar spike – and could even be very beneficial for diabetics.

Dates are not actually dried fruits, as they do contain quite a bit of water – when harvested, dates contain about 20% water. As they age, they do dry a bit. Store your dates in a cool, dry place to preserve their freshness.
