Cacao is great for breast health! Numerous flavonoids in the bean have been shown to inhibit the proliferation of several types of human breast cancer cells, while sparing normal cells. But remember, the beneficial effects of cacao are limited to raw, unrefined cacao - regular chocolate is high in sugar and hydrogenated fats which are positively associated with the risk of breast cancer. The milk proteins in milk chocolate may also inhibit the absorption of cocoa flavonoids. So go raw for happy, healthy boobies!

Combine all ingredients but the cacao nibs in a high-powered blender, until smooth. Sprinkle cacao nibs on top and serve. I recommend using Loving Earth or Powerfoods raw cacao nibs.
