Nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like chocolate. I am all for any holiday that encourages me to eat lots of chocolate, and encourages others to buy me chocolate. Win, win right?
If you are married, in a relationship or unattached this Valentine’s Day, this recipe is for you. You can feel good about drinking it because it’s healthy, but it tastes like a treat.
Any time of the year, this makes for a wonderful breakfast or after dinner treat.
Hubby and I actually had our first date on Valentine’s Day, so I’ll always have a soft spot for this holiday. But I also remember the many times I was single, so I think spiking this sucker with a little raspberry liquor and call some gals over for a dance party sounds like an amazing way to spend the night
Health highlight of Raspberries: All berries are extremely healthy and packed with nutrients. Raspberries are loaded with flavonoids and antioxidants, as well as being anti-inflammatory. New research even suggests a compound in raspberries could help boost fat metabolism. Raspberries can help support heart health through reduction of cholesterol and blood pressure. They are a great source of fiber, and have been linked to cancer prevention!
