If you saw yesterday’s post, hopefully you gained insights into your cravings during *that* time of the month.

Today’s recipe is the perfect solution for those times when you really want something sweet but don’t want to blow your diet.

The calcium and fiber in this treat will help you feel fuller longer, and the dark chocolate combined with the fruit’s natural sugars will satisfy your sweet tooth, without making you want more. (Can I get an amen to that?!)

Grab a bowl, a spoon, and enjoy!
