Blissful ~ Chocolate Mint

Standard

Our Fresh Mint

     Chocolate? Raw cacao that is. A live superfood full of antioxidants! Plus phenylethlamine (PEA) and Anandamide (The Bliss Chemical). Lucky for me, chocolate is full of goodness for our bodies. With fresh almond milk in the fridge and mint leaves growing in our kitchen, I couldn’t resist the thought of chocolate mint. I quickly blended my almond milk with raw cacao powder, a banana, fresh date, and mint leaves off our growing plant with lots of aroha…~blissful~
