No matter my efforts to be as healthy as I can be- I can’t live life without sweets. I have a MAJOR sweet tooth that refuses to be suppressed. And to be honest, I don’t really try.

I mean- what’s life without chocolate? Right? Well, that’s how I justify my indulgences. Everything in moderation is also a completely logical approach to giving in to my cravings.

AND- chocolate is healthy for your heart. See, there are a lot of reasons to keep on enjoying chocolate (or excuses if you choose to see it that way).
Anyway- there are ways to make chocolate a little healthier. “Have your cake and eat it too” so to speak.

This recipe uses unrefined ingredients and incorporates an essential oil to yield a dairy free, vegan chocolate that will rock your world!

So go ahead and indulge. Guilt-free.
