We're so used to seeing celebs' fitspirational photos that sometimes it's hard not to wonder: Do they allow themselves to indulge in sinful treats? While not many of them share their food chronicles online, I can guarantee you that they like to enjoy sweets, too (most of them have cheat days, while others allow themselves a small indulgence everyday provided they get to work out). Here are some of our Kapamilya actresses' dessert loves:
Lamingtons. These squares of sponge cake coated in chocolate sauce and desiccated coconut and sometimes served as halves with strawberry jam or cream in between are Anne Curtis' slices of Australia here in Manila (this dessert orginated from the Land Down Under). She enjoyed it so much at Bondi & Burke, a newly-opened restaurant in Makati serving authentic Australian cuisine, that she did not stop at just one piece.
Dark Chocolate. KC Concepcion loves these freshly made dark chocolate with nuts, which she pairs with coffee. Dark chocolate is actually good for you because it has more cacao content and less sugar than the regular variety, and is loaded with antioxidants.
Iced Gems. A classic '90s generation snack, these biscuits adorned with colored icing transported Alex Gonzaga to her childhood. You'll never go wrong with this treat: Make your younger siblings, friends, or kids try it or reminisce your youth by popping these mini delights into your mouth.
Ice Buko. Sexy Coleen Garcia shares a childhood memory: She used to go to their friendly neighborhood sari-sari store to buy eight ice buko pops and would eat them all in one sitting. Today, she considers it the best reward after one of her hiking adventures.
Nutella-filled red velvet crinkles. This treat had Liza Soberano fall in love with it because not only does it satisfy her craving for sweets, it's not as sinful as most desserts because it's made with more natural substitute ingredients.
What are you waiting for? Go on and try these treats yourself for a delight-filled day,
