Sometimes it can be tough being a vegan during the holidays. You go to so many parties and family gatherings and most desserts you can’t touch.
It’s easy to make, has some healthy ingredients and the most important thing of all, it’s delicious. The ingredient that sets this apart from other desserts is pomegranate. The fruit is high in fiber, protein and vitamin C.
My kids loved the bark, except the little ones picked the pomegranates off. The appearance is key with this dessert as well. The red pomegranates and white coconut on top of the dark chocolate really looked festive.
The only thing about this recipe is some people may think it’s just a little too rich. The best thing to do, make it. Enjoy your Christmas, the Dark Chocolate Coconut Pomegranate Bark and of course that vegan thing.
