Les Belles Envies : the ultimate sugar-free treat
Food enthusiast Alixe Bornon recently opened a pâtisserie and chocolate store close to place Maubert. This is the perfect place for diabetics and healthy eating enthusiasts who need to watch their glycemic index or weight to enjoy a special treat without feeling guilty. Super stylish with a designer feel, Les Belles Envies labels the glycemic index of every cake, each one as precious as a jewel, monitored and certified by a diabetologist. Here, the sugar (glucose) has been replaced by spices – vanilla, ginger, etc. – and fruit sugar (fructose), and verbena and jasmine infusions, and they do not add chemical sweeteners. The result is a creamy, sweet and complex taste to enjoy in pies, éclairs and soft-centered chocolates. Who would have thought that all of these gourmet creations had such a low glycemic index? Les Belles Envies is a wonderful place for guilt-free indulgence.
