5. Finally, top with the rest of the chocolate mixture and refrigerate for another 30 minutes.
Coconut oil - We love coconut oil topically because it has a naturally SPF and it is super hydrating for the skin. When you ingest coconut oil, it provides the body with MCTs which can be used for energy and brain power! It can also help keep you full, preventing unwanted snacking. We all know that typically when we are snacking, we are eating more processed, sugar rich foods that can damage the skin.
Cocoa - Cacao is the bean that chocolate is made from. On its own, is very bitter but it has amazing health benefits. Raw cacao is high in antioxidants which help clear out free radicals, which can damage the skin. Including cacao in your daily diet can be a great way to care for your skin from the inside out.
Peppermint Oil - Peppermint oil not only gives this recipe a delicious, cooling flavor, it also packs some impressive digestive benefits. It has antimicrobial and anti-viral activities and can help improve gas and bloating. This is why we include it in Flatter Me, our digestive enzyme formula. Healthy digestion is key to beautiful skin.
