Dark chocolate
Dark chocolate comes from the cocoa bean and the more it contains cocoa, the more it is rich in fiber that is essential for good intestinal transit. It is for this reason that it is advisable to choose for this recipe a dark chocolate with a high cocoa content, of at least 85%.

It also contains magnesium and helps combat fatigue and stress. Thus, tryptophans, which are amino acids, once transformed, diffuse serotonin to the body and promote the secretion of endorphins, to improve mood and soothe anxiety.

Agave syrup
Agave syrup is naturally sweet and has a neutral taste ideal for cooking sweet dishes and is less caloric than refined sugar. Moreover, 50 grams of agave syrup is the equivalent of 150 grams of sugar. It can thus be an alternative to sugar as part of a diet for diabetics, but at low doses of course.

Thus milk or coconut cream is a source of vitamin B9 (folate) and B3, which participate in the manufacture of the body's cells and in the formation of DNA.

In addition, the coconut contains a lipid called lauric acid, which according to one study, has an antimicrobial effect by inhibiting growth among others, Staphylococcus aureus. Similarly, through other research, lauric acid has been shown to induce apoptosis (cell destruction) in cancer cells.
