Any time I have an excuse to eat chocolate, I am all OVER it. Dark chocolate is packed with something called flavonoids, which help to fight inflammation in the body and have been found to be fighters of cancer.

Here is a recipe for a dark chocolate smoothie PACKED with heart and skin healthy antioxidants.

You will need: Makes 1 serving
1 cup almond milk
1/2 banana
1 tbsp raw cacao (highest in antioxidants)
1 tbsp agave nectar (natural sweetness)
1 cup ice

Total cal: 170 calories of GOODNESS.

Blend and drink up to give you skin a boost of health! Stay tuned tomorrow for a healthy chocolate recipe for your FACEEEE!!
