Who doesn’t love chocolate and raspberries?! This recipe is good all year-round – the combination never goes out of style! Raw Cacao contains the mood booster, anandamide — known as at the bliss molecule, which gives you a feeling of euphoria. It’s also rich in heart-protective antioxidants – containing the same polyphenol antioxidants as green tea and red wine. No fancy equipment needed to make this recipe – only a food processor. No excuses not to give it a go!
