When I first opened the new Biggest Loser Dessert Cookbook, I just kept thinking “I want it! I want it! I want it!”. When I told the book’s author, Chef Devin Alexander, she enthusiastically replied “You can have it! You can have it! You can have it!”. The author behind many other Biggest Loser cookbooks and several of her own, says it’s because this is the first cookbook of its kind. All the recipe ingredients are all-natural and unprocessed, not to mention low in calories, fat and with hardly any saturated fat.
Too good to be true? Maybe, but the good news is it’s true!
Devin spent the summer working on this top secret project at the request of Biggest Loser. They gave her some unheard of rules that would have left her with a dessert cookbook without any chocolate syrup or whipped cream, as examples. She told herself to revolutionize, and she did. The results include her own creations for a chocolate syrup (unsweetened cocoa powder and agave nectar), her own “Cut the Crap” Whipped Topping (egg whites and agave), as well as the one recipe in the book she is most proud of, “New”-Tella, a natural alternative to that “other” hazelnut spread that she says “is actually kind of good for you.”
Listen now as Devin talks to us about how these desserts can complement your diet, how she used a variety of ingredients to maintain the textures and flavors people love, and how substitutions can work in your home baking.
If you’re a fan of Chef Devin Alexander on Twitter, the adorably personable chef behind many of the Biggest Loser cookbooks, then you might have caught her feverishly posting all summer about a top-secret project that had her whipping up a bounty of desserts in her Manhattan Beach kitchen. Well, the mixing beaters are cleaned and she managed to keep her fit figure throughout the course of her culinary inventions, and she can now safely announce what she’s been hiding.
This fall, the newest creation from Biggest Loser will release The Biggest Loser Dessert Cookbook. Inside you’ll find more than 80 sweet tooth-tempting treats created by Chef Devin. Following rules given by Biggest Loser to keep the desserts as wholesome as possible, Chef Devin has created a book full of all-natural ingredients that will satisfy and tempt as well as they will keep you on track.
A sneak peek at some of these new Biggest Loser dessert recipes have whet our appetites and will no doubt have people anxiously awaiting the book’s release. Read Full Post >
