My Brigadeiro; Your Teeth n’ Tummy

Sweets for all you sweets!

Here is a yummy holiday treat that is actually good for you. Yes, good for you. I am not lying. Well, at least not again.

I’ve already suffered from being put on that “naughty list” too many times. But back to the treats…

The treats are traditional Brazilian treats by My Brigadeiro. From New Beauty’s Editorial Assistant Kati Villavicencio:

But this holiday season, have your cake and a little nutrition too with traditional Brazilian treats by My Brigadeiro sweets. Slow cooked with the health conscious in mind, these handcrafted delights, tasting of soft fudge crossed with decadent chocolate truffle, are made with organic, all natural ingredients and void of preservatives (with the exception of conventional toppings). Flavors range from the traditional, like dark chocolate encrusted with pistachios or milk chocolate covered in toasted almonds, to the exotic, like lime zested chocolate dipped in Brazilian Cachaca (kah-SHAH-sah) liquor or white chocolate infused with sweet guava.

Not seeing the health benefits just yet? Aside from their perfect bite size that’s sure to satisfy any sweet craving, the pistachios provide a variety of different vitamins, minerals and fiber while the dark chocolate is believed to pack natural antioxidants thanks to the cacao beans it’s sourced from. While calling milk chocolate healthy may be a stretch, these almond-rich treats are loaded with vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin B2, calcium and protein, among other health benefits. Guava, a native fruit of Brazil, is also a great source of vitamin C, fiber and antioxidants.

Eating healthy is a lot easier if the food tastes good plus includes bits to satisfy a sweet tooth. Well, these treats will rock your teeth and tummy into sweet bliss.
