Diet-friendly, healthy chocolates to get you through the Easter holidays.

Easter. The only day of the year that it is acceptable to eat chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But indulging doesn’t have to ruin one’s diet.

There are a number of chocolates available that will not only satisfy a sweet tooth but will also fit into anyone’s health kick.

Here are the top healthy Easter chocolates that won’t break a diet.

Vegan Chocolates

Loving Earth

Loving Earth’s diverse range of chocolates are not only delicious, they’re also vegan and organic, meaning they can be enjoyed without any guilt.

Additionally, the brand is cane sugar free, gluten free, and soy free.

The cocoa that Loving Earth uses is sourced from a remote forest in the Amazon jungle in Peru, and it’s all ethical and sustainable approved.

From flavours such as salted caramel chocolate, lemon cheesecake, coffee ka-pow and turkishly-delightful, these chocolates are rich in flavour. It’s hard to believe they contain no milk or dairy products.

Our pick for Easter is the Boobook Chocolate Eggs, which are made from cashew mylk and filled with a soft caramel centre.

50% of the profits from this are also donated to the Great Forest National Park Campaign, meaning it’s good for the environment and the waistline.

Pana Organic Chocolate

Pana Organic chocolate is one of the most recognised vegan chocolate brands available today, and as an added benefit, their bars are all handmade.

Their slogan, “chocolate with consciousness at its core,” explains their chocolate in a nutshell – it’s all vegan, organic, and made from ethical and sustainably grown ingredients. Per serve, they also contain less than 4 grams of sugar.

Available in tastes such as coconut and goji, sour cherry and vanilla, fig and wild orange, chai, and pineapple and ginger, to name a few, their flavours are innovative and unique – a far cry from the original milk chocolate block.

Sugar free chocolates
