healthy sweets for your sweetie

 This Valentine’s Day have your main squeeze bite into something sweet and healthy with these good-for-you goodies!

 

Babycakes bakery is great place to pick up treats if your sweetie is a vegan, these cupcakes are healthy, but still sure satisfy any sweet tooth

Strawberries are a great choice for Valentine’s Day.  They’re loaded with healthy minerals and vitamins, the kind that boost your immune system, improve brain health, and slow aging. Add a little dark chocolate and you’ve got a treat very few people can resist. Yeah, that’s sweet.

Dark chocolate — a potent antioxidant known to lower blood pressure — covered almonds are packed with protein and vitamins that not only taste great, but are healthy as well. Unless your sweetie is allergic to nuts — we suggest you find that out first — these are the perfect Valentine’s gift.

Angel food cake is really a star in the world of baking and confection. Named because of it’s light and airy texture, this cake is great because it’s low in calories but still offers a delicious sweet taste without the guilt.


When tarte met BabyCakes…

For those of you who have not already met, let me introduce you to BabyCakes, NYC’s (& LA’s!) most-celebrated vegan bakery. This fantastic sweet shop offers all your favorite treats from cupcakes and brownies, to their signature (must-try) cookie sandwiches. Although all of their organic goodies are free of gluten, wheat, soy, casein, egg and refined sugar, they certainly don’t taste like it! Yesterday we had an office birthday (Happy Birthday Kate!) and celebrate we did with a cake plate piled high with BabyCake’s cupcakes in the dreamiest of pastel colors (a la ‘The Umbrellas of Cherbourg). What’s sweeter than red velvet frosting? The fact that BabyCakes is just a 10 minute subway ride from our office (score!) Located in the super-hip lower east side at 248 Broome Street (between Orchard and Ludlow), it’s our ultimate snacking destination. Be sure to stop by if you happily find yourself in New York. Say goodbye to your prior notions of “crunchy granola” health food and hello to beautiful, colorful cookies and cupcakes that are impossible to resist!
