It may be hard to believe that this indulgent blend of chocolate and raspberries is good for you, but it's true. There's evidence that chocolate can stimulate the pleasure centers in the brain. And soy contains plant-based hormones that can help relieve some of the mood swings that sometimes accompany PMS. Fresh mint is not only the perfect garnish, but it may also help reduce cramps.
|HMMM! Strawberries Wild was my favorite thing to make and drink when working at Jamba Juice, although I was sworn to secrecy not to give up the recipe. I'm so glad they decided to share it with savvy miss. It's absolutely delicious!|
|PMS potion? really?? i can never say no to chocolate...or raspberries, for that matter. i'll have to try that.|
