Do away with the notion that low-fat is always better than full-fat! The fact is that full-fat curd, made by fermenting milk, is far healthier than low-fat curd. It has an ample dose of good protein, which is especially good for vegetarians.

Add to this calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamins B2 and B12, and you get nothing short of a treasure-trove of nutrients. With a dash of unsweetened cocoa powder and organic honey, chilled full-fat curds transforms into a super-duper snack. Honey, which is always better than sugar, gives the curds a very pleasant sweetness.

Apart from being an excellent food for athletes, Curd with Honey and Cocoa Powder is also an apt snack for weight loss, as it keeps you full with good fats instead of bad fats like in French Fries! Indulge in a treat that is so tasty that you almost forget it is so good for you!

Other good dips and snacks to have are Homemade Peanut Butter , Broccoli-and Bajra Snack , Flax Seeds with Curd and Honey and Homemade Almond Butter .

Hi. Had tried this recipe on a ironman athelete''s recommendation. Been consuming it for a month now. It is an excellent filler , can be made anytime . Reduces sugar craving at the same time gives a boost of energy. Highly recommend to all endurance runners for nutrition value.

I have this often as a snack in the morning at work as it has all the good fat and proteins from curd. Organic honey is a great choice over regular honey and sugar. The unsweetened chocolate takes care of my chocolate cravings. Thanks.
