Leave it to me to try to slip a little dairy into one of my favorite libations!!!  To increase your calcium intake in a new way, whip up this easy Chocolate Martini! Sometimes you have to indulge a little bit, especially when you’re trying to eat more healthily. This is my favorite way to unwind after a stressful day and it goes surprisingly well with a bowl full of fresh strawberries. The perfect dessert in my opinion. Try it, I think you’ll agree….and know you’ll be building stronger bones while sipping on this sweet, chocolately dream.
