Superfood “Chocolate” Bark

This time of year, I feel so inspired by the music, lights, energy, and overall cozy atmosphere. As a result, I have created some festive recipes, including my superfood bark which is 100% delicious and 100% nutritious. Before I dive into the recipe, I want to share a little more about the secret ingredient: prebiotics.

While many of us are familiar with “probiotics” (which is the live bacteria in our guts), less of us understand the importance of prebiotics. Prebiotics are undigestible plant fibres that feed the bacteria in our gut. I like thinking of probiotics and prebiotics as a team that works simultaneously to support immune health and aid in proper digestion.

Considering fibre literally feeds the live bacteria in our gut it is vital to consume good quality fibre that does not irritate our digestive lining. Lately my go-to product has been Genuine Health’s Fermented Organic Gut Superfoods+ because their formula is bloat free, and easy to incorporate into various recipes. It is derived from 21 organic plant-based superfoods that are rich in phytonutrients, all of which are vegan, dairy free, NON GMO, and gluten free.

Typically I use this product is in a smoothie, and opt for the unflavoured powder which lets me pull the natural flavours from other raw ingredients. That said, I made this bark using the berry powder to try something a little more festive! It’s a great snack, dessert, or yogurt topping! You can find Genuine Health fermented organic gut superfoods+ at many health foods stores in Toronto or you can purchase online from their site directly. Xoxo
