There is only one flavor in the world that competes with my love of chocolate and that is pumpkin. Sometimes I simply must marry the two. Pumpkin is in the squash family so as long as the flesh of the plant is orange, any squash will do. For this recipe, I used acorn squash. You can make pudding or you can add a little more almond milk and crushed ice and turn it into a smoothie...

Yesterday I decided to play with my chocolate for breakfast smoothie. I think I shocked a few of my fans when I posted this photo on my fan page. But seriously? It’s a delicious way to go green. If you’re new to my chocolate for breakfast world, I’m a self-professed chocolate aficionado...
Editor's Note: I LOVE my breakfast smoothies and I'm totally going to have to add this one to my repertoire. How can you go wrong when you start your day with chocolate? But don't let the recipe fool you - it's super- nutritious too!

There are some things in life you just can’t avoid (beyond the old death and taxes joke). For instance, if you’re eating Double Dutch chocolate at midnight on a regular basis, it’s inevitable that you’re going to start waking up feeling guilty. And when it comes to exercise, sooner or later, it’s inevitable that you’re going to fall into a rut. Whether you’re lacking the motivation to get to the gym, or you’ve grown bored with the routine you’re doing once you get there, falling into a rut is natural...

I found a brownie recipe on the Institute for Integrative Nutrition website. It called for carob powder. For a chocolate lover like me, that was unacceptable. How can you make a brownie with a chocolate substitute? So I tweaked the recipe to include high-quality chocolate (preferably sweetened with evaporated cane juice) and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Both cacao and cayenne pepper are aphrodisiacs. Cayenne pepper also dilates capillaries and thus allows cacao’s abundant nutrients to reach cells more easily...

There is quite the controversy when it comes to dairy. Some swear by it for a source of calcium, vitamin D and minerals and others will tell you to stay as far away from it as you can. Further still, some people are terribly intolerant to and allergic to milk and dairy. Regardless of your stance, this is a fabulous alternative to dairy ice cream....
Editor's Note: I made these and took them to work for the ladies that I work with who are absolute chocoholics and they loved them. Like many healthy for your treats they did not believe me when I told them what was in them, but they are totally hooked! I put pistachios in mine, because they are my favorite, and they were awesome...
