Unless you are allergic to coconut, this is a very healthy snack or dessert. Adding good fats to your diet is extremely important for brain health. Our brain cells are coated in “fat” and need to be fed adequate good fats to keep our brains healthy and sharp. And considering that our brains dictate or cells, FAT IS IMPORTANT! Both the coconut milk and walnuts contain healthy fats. I’m also told that dark, raw cacao helps balance hormones.
