There's something special about taking time out for a treat. Truly enjoying it is an indulgence in itself. Unfortunately, many treats are not really treating our health very well and it becomes more of a mis-treat and a guilty pleasure. So can you have your treat and enjoy good health too? Yes!

This treat is a super treat. The berries and dark chocolate are all high in anti-oxidants and the good fats in the chocolate help balance out the sweetness from the fruit. It all adds up to a great treat that leaves you feeling healthy, satisfied and guilt-free.
