Love chocolate? Lucky for you, raw cacao (“nature”s chocolate,” if you will) is loaded with anti-aging flavonoids, procyanidin, and catechins. Plus, avocado, the base of this raw brownie batter pudding, is packed with hydrating and anti-aging fats and antioxidants that protect skin from sun damage and ensure that skin stays hydrated, supple, and youthful. You can use this as a dip for apples, bananas, or strawberries, too, for a healther (and anti-aging) take on chocolate-covered fruit.
