Today’s Health-e-Recipe for Chocolate Mint Angel Food Cake with Raspberry Sauce is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way.
Angel food cake is light and airy because of its many egg whites. With not too much sugar and some cocoa — a source of healthful phytochemicals, especially if you use a good quality cocoa — this recipe is as easy to prepare as it is low in calories.
Topped with fiber-rich raspberries (8 grams of fiber per cup), you’ll also get ellagic acid, another phytochemical that ats as an antioxidant and seems to suppress the reproduction of cancer cells. The more berries, the merrier — you can even garnish your cake with additional whole raspberries on top of the sauce for an attractive presentation.
It’s a winning Valentine’s Day recipe or an impressive dessert for a dinner party. For more delicious and healthy recipes, visit the AICR Test Kitchen. Click here to subscribe to weekly Health-e-Recipes.
