In honor of Valentine’s Day, this week’s recipe is a healthier way to indulge your sweet tooth.
Loaded with antioxidants, this decadent drink from holistic lifestyle counselor and nutritionist Katherine Pennington shows some love to everything from your skin (thanks to the coconut) to your heart (thanks to the flaxseed) to your sex drive (thanks to the chocolate).

It’ll be love at first sip! Enjoy!
