Banana Split Smoothie [Video]

Like Valentine’s Day in a glass. Don’t underestimate the healing powers of dark chocolate—it’s not there as a gimmick. When you combine fruit and dark chocolate (at least 70 percent cacao), you accelerate the release of butyrate, a compound made in your large intestine that tells your fat-storage genes to chill out.
