Raspberry Treat

Raspberries are rich in minerals such as potassium, copper, iron, manganese and magnesium and high in vitamins K and B-complex. These vitamins are extremely helpful in aiding our metabolism, which in turn is responsible for weight-loss. The dark chocolate in the recipe adds antioxidants, which increases blood flow.
