Health Benefits of Mint Cream After Dinner
Mint after dinner cream is a delicious and refreshing dessert that not only satisfies your taste buds but also offers several health benefits. Made with a combination of mascarpone, double cream, powdered sugar, cream sherry and thin mints, this dessert is not only a treat for your senses but also offers some nutritional value.
1. Calcium rich
The use of mascarpone and double cream in the after-dinner mint cream contributes to its high calcium content. Calcium is an essential mineral necessary for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth. Eating calcium-rich foods like this dessert can help prevent conditions like osteoporosis and improve oral health.
2. Antioxidant properties
The after-dinner mints used in this recipe contain antioxidants, beneficial compounds that protect the body from damage caused by harmful free radicals. Antioxidants play an important role in reducing inflammation, combating oxidative stress and preventing chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
3. Mood-enhancing effect
Mint has long been known for its mood-enhancing properties. The refreshing aroma and taste of mint can lift your mood and relieve stress. Mint After Dinner Cream is a delicious way to enjoy the minty goodness while promoting a feeling of relaxation and well-being after eating.
4. Indulgence in moderation
Although mint cream offers some health benefits after dinner, it is important to enjoy it in moderation. The added sugar and cream in this dessert should be consumed in sensible portions to ensure a balanced diet. However, occasionally indulging in a small portion of this delicious dessert can be a satisfying and enjoyable experience.
So next time you’re in the mood for a sweet and refreshing after-dinner treat, consider the indulgent yet health-conscious choice of a mint after-dinner cream. Its combination of calcium, antioxidants, and mood-boosting effects can make for a truly satisfying dessert experience.
