Guilt-free desserts Eight rea­sons why pud­ding is good for you – and all of them are avail­able in abu Dhabi

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - CON­TENTS -

01 Chia-matCha pas­sion fruit pot

You’ll find a menu full of healthy sal­ads at Al Muroor café Soul­full, and their desserts can also be con­sumed guilt free. Their chia-matcha pas­sion fruit pot is made of chia seeds, honey, caramel, matcha, blue­ber­ries, pas­sion fruit, red berries and black­ber­ries. Chia seeds are a good source of Omega-3 and are full of an­tiox­i­dants, while matcha is thought to detox­ify and im­prove the im­mune sys­tem and speed up your me­tab­o­lism.

02 straw­bErrY ChoCo­latE CrépE

The rough and ready re­cy­cled dé­cor of Shabby Chic is one rea­son to visit, but so is the calo­rie count on its menu, which re­veals that its straw­berry choco­late crépe will only cost you 220 calo­ries from your daily al­lowance.

03 aCai bowl

The acai berry is a real hip­ster su­per­food right now, thanks in part be­cause it’s packed with an­tiox­i­dants and fi­bre, and it’s claimed it can aid weight loss and even im­prove cir­cu­la­tion. The Raw Place’s acai bowl is made of acai pow­der, straw­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries, goji berries, ba­nana, chia seeds, al­mond but­ter and al­mond ‘mylk’ (con­sist­ing of al­monds, dates and pink Hi­malayan salt).
