The short answer is yes. Dancers do eat dessert. However, as anyone could already guess, all dancers have to watch their weight. Ballet costumes and leotards are merciless and dancers need to stay slender. So what is a dancer to do?
It’s fine to indulge in the occasional treat. The idea is to choose one that you can afford that also tastes good. Luna and Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss fits the bill. Made with only a few simple ingredients (coconut milk, agave syrup, toasted coconut flakes, organic flavors) it is bliss in a bowl (or cone, depending how you like your ice cream). Agave syrup has a low glycemic index, so it’s a sweet taste that doesn’t take a toll on your body. Coconut milk is full of MCT’s (medium chain triglycerides) that have antiviral, antifungal, and cancer-fighting properties.
This is a dessert that’s actually good for you.
If coconut is not your thing, there are other tantalizing flavors to try, including Cherry Amaretto, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Mint Galactica. If you can’t live without dessert you can still get delicious and nutritious all in one scoop.
