Choffy Chocolate Cupcakes
Choffy is brewed Chocolate. It’s 100% cacao beans, roasted and ground for a rich, full flavored drink that is healthy! Choffy tastes SO good… with a little french vanilla creamer and a 1 tsp agave in it! Mmmm… I love dark chocolate SO dark chocolate Choffy in my mug with it’s antioxidant benefits (there’s more antioxidants in an 8oz mug of Choffy than 2 servings of blueberries) AND I’m in heaven!
Some other benefits of Choffy is that it contains Theobromine which provides you with a healthy, heart-friendly, non-addictive energy lift without the crash or jitters of caffeine. It also has the natural occurring bliss chemical called PEA and Anandamide for a “feel good” feeling. PEA is also a fat blocker according to Dr. Oz and prevents fat absorption! Sweet 🙂
If you remember back to my Tea and Carrot Cake Scones post, I wrote about all the wonderful things I love about herbal teas and a said how much I LOVE dark chocolate too. At only 20 calories a serving I’m going to have to add Choffy to my list! LOVE IT.
