Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
I love that she uses unsweetened cocoa, which is a powerful antioxidant. Cocoa contains extremely concentrated levels of flavonoids, which are are part of a powerful group of antioxidants known as polyphenols. Cocoa's high flavonoid content may help stimulate the production of feel-good endorphins which boost serotonin, an antidepressant. Its heart health benefits stem from its ability to lower high blood pressure and reduce risk of stroke.
In order to obtain the health boosting benefits, consider buying raw cocoa powder, which is a minimally processed cocoa powder. And stick to the portion size to keep your sugar intake low, and enjoy the rich cocoa flavor with bits of chopped chocolate for texture.
