Superfood Holiday Chocolate Bark

Guest recipe and blog by Emily Hill @wonderwhyimfat

I wanted to make something for the holidays that would not only satisfy my sweet tooth, but that’s good for me too. That way I can snack without guilt :)  

Not only is holiday bark so much fun to make, it’s a wonderful superfood! You can get creative when making this by adding all your favorite toppings from nuts to dried fruits. I’m a big fan of sweet and salty, so I like to add salted pistachios. But be creative and add what you like, you really can’t go wrong!

This recipe features dark chocolate and cranberries which are rich in antioxidants and have been shown to help reduce blood pressure. They are the perfect flavor combination and make this bark absolutely delicious. You’ll also find pistachios and coconut, which are loaded with fiber so they will help you stay fuller for longer (and aid the good bacteria in your gut). 

To top it all off, I added in capsules of Just Thrive Probiotic to make this bark even better and support my gut health, which is so important during the holiday season especially!  We all tend to overindulge on some nostalgic, childhood favorites, so I feel good knowing that my gut can handle the extra treats and stay healthy and balanced with Just Thrive.

If you have a hard time swallowing pills, or just like to take your daily supplements all at one time, you can easily add your daily serving of Just Thrive Probiotic and most other Just Thrive supplements to any meal. You can just sprinkle on top, mix in and voila!  Gut and immune support all in one delicious dose! 

It’s time to feel your best this season!  Let’s get baking.

Note: This is a great way to eat something sweet and festive without having any guilt!  Well, you may feel a little guilty when you polish off the whole tray!  It’s delicious!
