BY Angelina Lewis | July 24, 2017 | Feature Features National

These 5 spots serve scrumptious, nutrient dense treats to satisfy your cravings and your health goals.
Sample from Cafe Gratitude's delectable menu of health-conscious sweets.

Leave Beaming with a guilt-free glow after indulging in wellness visionary Lisa Odenweller’s superfood treats. Her plant-based menu includes raw, delectable desserts like the lime tart that sits on a date crust made with cashews, almonds, coconut flakes, avocado and a citrusy lime juice topped with Wild Berry Chia Jam. The Beaming gelato sandwich also remains a foodie favorite. The treat is filled with Millie’s raw Organic Vegan Gelato and held together by two melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies, which contain superfood greens and a surprising nine grams of protein. Feeling nutty? Try the irresistible coconut vanilla flavor or the mocha almond fudge! West Hollywood

Cafe Gratitude
Executive chef Dreux Ellis cooks up plant-based fare inspired by the richness of life while supporting local farmers and using 100-percent organic ingredients. What better way to celebrate than with raw, vegan treats like the Decadent / Almond Buttercup Shake that’s blended with naturally sweet coconut cashew ice cream, raw cacao nibs and creamy almond butter? Make sure to also try the coconut cream pie which is far from average here. With its added dark chocolate swirls that gives it an extra kick of sweetness, there’s no wonder it’s named Irresistible! Beverly Hills, 424.389.1850

Peek inside Sage Organic Vegan Bistro to discover a new kind of “icekreme.” Founder Mollie Engelhart’s vision for a family-friendly dessert led her to create a healthy alternative to the widely beloved treat. Taste test exotic flavors like coconut carrot ginger, citrus gogi, beet ginger grapefruit and honey chai which do not disappoint. With its handcrafted batches sourced from seasonal and sustainable ingredients, KindKreme’s commitment to a better planet definitely shows! Echo Park, 213.989.1718

LifeFood Organic
With endless options of plant-based sweets, the one thing you can’t skip out on at LifeFood Organic is dessert. Powered by raw cacao nibs and stacked with fluffy vanilla layers, the chocolate dream cake remains a show-stopping house favorite. Dump the blueberry muffin for an energy-boosting blueberry maca cake made with dates for a natural kick of sweetness combined with power-house herb maca all set in a house-made macadamia nut crust. Or if you’re after something different, opt for the raw lavender truffle made with a decadent lavender oil and flaky shreds of coconut. Hollywood, 323.466.0927

Wild Living Foods
Skip the fro-yo for a dairy-free frozen that tastes just like the real thing. Wild Living Foods’ coconut-based vegan gelatos are constantly evolving with new, creative flavors like the antioxidant-filled matcha, and classic favorites like salted caramel, cookies & cream and coffee crunch. You won’t find any refined sugars in these treats as the gelatos are naturally sweetened using ingredients like low-glycemic, coconut blossom sugar, dates and maple syrup. Sweet deal! DTLA
