Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, its friends-only cousin, Very Awesome Day, or even a regular Tuesday, nothing beats a tasty bite of chocolate – unless it’s chocolate sans calories. Until that dream becomes a reality, we do have two delicious recipes for chocolate lovers that are actually good for you!
Both of these easy-to-make recipes feature Hush & Hush’s Plant Your Day, which is a vegan protein supplement optimized for gut health and balanced skin. The team at Pure Vive Med Spa loves this supplement because of its amazing health benefits and its versatility. This delicious chocolate powder works great in recipes, and as a meal replacement when added, for example, to a blender drink of almond milk and strawberries. So go ahead and make these recipes for yourself or that special someone in your life and celebrate the healthy way!
