HELLOOOOO!! HAPPY Fridayyyyy :D
How are you?! Did you have a PRODUCTIVE week?! Are you ready for the weekend?! I'm sooooo ready to get the weekend started!! BRING IT ON!!!
Today's post is Friday's recipe. The following smoothie recipe is by Candice Kumai and has chocolate in the ingredients! Chocolate does a body good!! Cocoa powder is naturally packed with antioxidants and may aid in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, which can lead to a healthier heart. Cocoa may also help to improve circulation and release feel-good chemicals, such as serotonin and endorphins. It contains essential fats and minerals, including calcium, magnesium, sulfur, zinc, and iron. Studies even show that chocolate can mimic the same HAPPY feelings as kissing...lol! Um, HELLOOOOO chocolate :D
