We've all had those days when we know we should have a kale salad, but all we really want is something not so good for us. Thankfully, delicious ingredients like raw chocolate and banana are being supplemented with probiotics and spirulina to make healthy treats that satisfy your craving for something sweet. Check out three of our favorites below.

Surprise! These sweet treats are actually good for you:


As if a piece of rich dark chocolate lightly flavor with vanilla wasn’t enough to make your mouth water, Sunbiotics ups the ante by combining the antioxidant benefits of raw, stone-ground dark chocolate with probiotics to make both your belly and your mouth smile. The Sunbiotic Probiotic Chocolate contains 10 billion probiotics per bar, is gluten-free, soy-free and dairy-free and sweetened with low-glycemic coconut palm sugar.

Go Raw

For those who like the crunch of a chip, but not the guilt that goes with it, try Spirulina Super Chips from Go Raw. This organic snack is made from a few wholesome ingredients (sesame seeds, banana, coconuts and dates) and boosted with protein-rich and detoxifying spirulina powder. These sweet treats are perfect to keep in your desk at work or in your yoga back for a healthy after class snack.

Bija Chocolate Truffles

If you constantly forget to take your daily Omega 3’s supplement and aren’t conscious of getting healthy fats in your diet, try Bija Chocolate Truffles. These bite-sized organic truffles are infused with Udo’s 3-6-9 Oil Blend for a healthy dose of beneficial fats. Each 3-pack of truffles provides 8 grams of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (and we promise, you won't taste or see the oil at all). With three flavors to choose from—70% dark chocolate, milk chocolate with hazelnut or white chocolate with Canadian maple—this is a supplement you’ll never forget to take.
