Valentine’s Day: do you want to give something sweet and healthy? We recommend five options

Nothing shows love for a partner or a friend more than a sweet and romantic detail. In this note, we share a selection of brands that offer healthy but delicious products, perfect for Valentine’s Day gifts. Take note.

Dolce Vita

Dolce Vita was born from the passion for baking of Katherine Dextre, who graduated from the University of South Florida with a degree in Business Administration, and she created this venture as a university project that has become “a reality that transforms the perception of desserts.”

At Dolce Vita we firmly believe that delicious and healthy can go hand in hand. Our approach is based on taking advantage of the nutritional properties of natural ingredients such as fruits, vegetables and nuts. “This combination allows us to create desserts that are not only irresistibly tasty, but also nutritious and completely natural.”Katherine adds.

Likewise, they have launched a Valentine’s Day Box with your favorite personal desserts, definitely the perfect gift for someone you love.

DeCasa started as a hobby during the pandemic, however, over time, its founder Ana María experimented with healthy desserts, including vegan ones. “After more than a year of carrying out many tests, I relaunched the brand with the new concept of healthy desserts, which included gluten-free and vegan desserts, and a defined menu with a variety of these desserts. For 2022 we launch a rebranding under this new concept”Add.

In addition, we have now made all desserts gluten-free, for which we currently exclusively use almond and rice flour, and ingredients that may not contain gluten, as a precaution and safety measure, to avoid cross-contamination by gluten. And now we also have a greater variety of desserts for diabetics and vegans,” he says.

For Valentine’s Day they have a menu with limited edition desserts, all gluten-free, with the option to choose whether they are plant based and/or sugar-free for diabetics, among which options for all people who are vegan or those who are lactose intolerant are: Raspberry alfajor cake, which is double filled with coconut and raspberry delicacy; Tiny cakes, which are perfect pancakes as a little detail, minimalist and flirty; Sweetcups, decorated cupcake cups, inspired by the famous Sweethearts candies; and finally, a wooden box that contains brownies, alfajores, chocochips cookies, a jar of strawberry cheesecake and more.

Mónica Hidalgo created Organicland during the pandemic after closing a store and losing a design project. “That time during the pandemic, I self-taught techniques and more flavors, but I realized that there was an audience that wanted personalized cakes, new trends in designs, and I applied a lot of what I learned in fine arts in painting courses that I took,” Add.

Currently, in addition to selling personalized cakes, Mónica teaches cake design to entrepreneurial women so that they can include vegan and healthy options in their brands.
