Vegan Gifts for the Chocaholic
We all love chocolate and if you are looking for a gift for a loved one then you can rarely go wrong with a box of delicious chocolates. However if your loved one is vegan you are going to find it is a little more difficult as chocolate is made with dairy products and so is obviously a no no. However don’t be despondent as I have found a variety of vegan gifts in the chocolate range from beautiful and delicate vegan truffles to the more robust slabs of chocolate.
Vegan truffles are readily available from a variety of online stores and they come already gift wrapped so you can send them direct to your loved one if you want to. Many of the truffles I found tasted a little different from the conventional chocolates as they were not made with cream or butter dairy products but they were still very tasty and even moorish.
Chocolate Vegan Gifts – what is in them?
The main ingredient in vegan chocolate is Cacao which is really good for you. It is high in anti oxidants which any nutritious will tell you is fantastic for reducing the risk of heart attack and helps with circulation along with repairing cells and reducing cancers. Cacao is also full of minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and potassium all of which help to remove the toxins from your body and gives you healthy skin. We all feel good after a bar of chocolate and the reason for this is the Cacao as it increases the uptake of serotonin in the brain which in known to help with mood and positive feelings.
As there are no dairy products in vegan chocolate the fat comes from coconut oil. Coconut oil is known to help with fighting off bacteria which cause viruses and ill health. Moreover the acid in coconut oil can help with the prevention of the build up of cholesterol and even high blood pressure. Indeed coconut oil has also been known to help with digestion problems and diseases connected with the digestive system such as irritable bowel syndrome.
These two ingredients have fantastic health benefits and I think that together they make some great vegan gifts.
