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!
