    Healthy Chocolate Salami

    chocolate salami

    Now that fall is here, we will start thinking about chocolate again (although I never forget chocolate, to tell you the truth…: D). This chocolate salami is super healthy, contains no eggs and animal fat and it is the perfect chocolate delicacy.

    It has only a few and special ingredients. In addition to chocolate, I used hazelnut butter with cocoa, digestive cookies and pu’erh tea. I like to get to know new foods, drinks or delicacies, especially when they are so nutritious. That’s why I want to present them to you. I know you enjoy it too, judging by the many messages I receive, either here on the site or on social media.

    What is pu’erh tea?

    Pu’erh tea is a brewed Chinese tea powder made from dried tea leaves. The leaves, once dried, are completely oxidized (allowed to mature for much longer than any other tea) and then fermented. It combines the beneficial benefits of tea with those of fermented foods.

    Pu’erh tea is traditionally sold pressed in a variety of forms, which are called tea cakes, or in bulk. But, Matcha Ninja brought it in Greece in powder form.

    Research, which is still ongoing, shows that it helps lower cholesterol, reduces some forms of cancer, improve liver function, and lose weight. It is widely used to detoxify the body, to help digestion and to improve the immune system.

    Note that pu’erh, like any type of tea, contains caffeine. As for its taste, it is very similar to the classic tea, but it is a little more earthy.

    Digestive cookies should definitely be tried if you have not already done so. And if you avoid gluten, try these gluten-free ones. They are delicious! As you can see, this chocolate salami is super healthy! And it is so simple and fast to make. All you need is a bain-marie and a bowl. Eh, and a bit of patience until it freezes … 😉
