Chocolate and Banana is a culinary match made in food heaven. It is an unbeatable classic. Since the advent of the Internet meme database we began snarking and sniggering at banana jokes but have we stopped to look at the various nutrients it could supply us with? We disregard it for its mushy texture and what with all the rules about avoiding eye contact while consuming it. Just seems like too much work. Bananas are stuffed with all the minerals you will need to combat that worst hangover. Bananas make you smarter and are rich in antioxidants. And it pairs well with a laundry list of other fruits that it forms the base for any smoothie! So if you think bananas are just for monkeys, think again.
Chocolate, our famous aphrodisiac, almost always steals the spotlight when it comes to food. Everyone loves chocolate. Yes, it might be the cause of that muffin effect but you don’t have to guiltily nibble chocolate bars next time because it is also known to impart a ton of good. It helps, lower cholesterol levels, prevent cognitive decline, and reduces cardiovascular problems. Now that you’ve been enlightened, we’ll show you more ways (recipes) to feed your profound addiction to chocolate and bananas (?).
