Cherry & Almond Clafoutis
Cake without after-effects!
A cake that will give you an excellent, nutritious dose of vitamins and taste delicious!
Cake that doesn’t make you want to lie down afterward. Gluten and dairy-free cake that isn’t dry and bland. Although…cherries are well known for promoting good sleep because they contain melatonin. Also, cherries are not only rich in potent antioxidants that reduce inflammation, but they also regulate blood sugar levels.
Almonds soothe and support the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and the flavonoids in their skin work synergistically with vitamin E to maximize their antioxidant power.
Remember moderation for efficient digestion!
