Are you a chocoholic?  Do you find that you are constantly craving something sweet?

I remember when I was changing my eating habits sweets were the hardest thing for me to give up.

This simple treat was huge in helping me to get over the hurdle of binging on sweets.

How Is This Smart & Sexy?

If you’ve never enjoyed Cacao Beans, it is chocolate it it’s raw form. Known for giving energy, Raw Chocolate is a great source of magnesium, potassium and anti-oxidants.

Cacao comes in the form of a bean or a “nib” which is chopped up beans. You can find them at Whole Foods or from a great company that offers high quality “super-foods”, Organic Traditions.

Shredded Coconut helps to nurture the body in general and build energy; Almonds restore, tone and nurture the body.

Brown rice syrup is a low glycemic sweetener that does not spike your blood sugar levels like raw sugar.

Filled with so much goodness, this little treat that is  is great to make to have on hand whenever you find yourself wanting to grab something that isn’t the Smartest or Sexiest.
