This Antioxidant Cherry Chocolate Smoothie Boosts “Feel-Good” Endorphins and Helps Relieve Pain

2. Smoothies!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and who doesn’t love to indulge a little; I do! This Antioxidant Cherry Chocolate Smoothie recipe shows you how you can indulge and feel good about it at the same time.

Both the antioxidant benefits of raw cocao and cherries make this combination a rich, tasty one.

Raw cacao is loaded with phytochemicals that may reduce LDL cholesterol–and we all love that feel-good boost of endorphins we get from this pure source.

Cherries also are loaded with vitamin C and as a good source of minerals, such as potassium iron, zinc, copper, and manganese. This sweet power fruit also helps relieve pain.
