Dark Chocolate Detox Bites

Sometimes a little luxury is just what the doctor ordered. The gift of chocolate doesn’t just fill your heart with love, it’s also good for your mind, body and soul.

Chocolate comes from cacao beans, which are the fruit seeds that come from the cacao tree, and are full of natural plant nutrients and packed with antioxidants (just as green tea and blueberries are). To get the biggest health benefits opt for dark chocolate (65% or higher content) which has far more antioxidants than milk or white chocolate.
