Vegan Dessert Recipe: Chlorella Chocolate Dipped Strawberries and Bark (Dairy-Free, Vegan)

by Brandi Black, RHN

Delicious food is one of the best parts about life—  but not when it leaves you stuck with a sugar hangover or food coma. While it’s good to maintain balance in your diet and savor a few treats , you can avoid the negative health consequences of refined sugar by making healthy recipe swaps whenever possible— just like we have with these sweet chlorella recipes. 


Why Add Chlorella to Your Recipes? 

Many people love taking Sun Chlorella as a nutritional supplement for natural body purification, but adding chlorella to your dessert and raw food recipes can further help increase the nutritional value of your meals. 

Chlorella contains vitamins and minerals such as D, B12 and iron, which means it can help build up your immune system, improve your mood and support your digestive system. Chlorella also contains a special nutrient called Chlorella Growth Factor, or CGF. CGF is rich in the nucleic acids, which help support your cellular health. 

Nucleic acids help our bodies naturally produce RNA and DNA, which give “instructions” to our cells and tell them which functions to carry out— such as repair and regeneration. As we get older, our natural production of RNA and DNA declines, which is when our cells repair and regenerate more slowly. This is why receiving nucleic acids from dietary sources such as chlorella, is so beneficial to our health at any age. 

By improving the health of your cells, the nucleic acids in Chlorella Growth Factor can also help energize your body. Energy production takes place in your cells, so when your cells are healthy, your body can produce long-lasting energy more efficiently (goodbye, espresso!). 

Get ready to maintain and improve your natural wellness with not one but two chocolate covered strawberries recipes- one for when you want to show off and one for you when you are short on time and want that instant gratification. We also have a chocolate bark recipe that is mmm mmm- lost for words good.
