Valentine’s Day is a just a few days away – plenty of time to make something special. This chocolate mousse was developed by high school student Shameer Griffin and won second place in our C-CAP Healthy Dessert Contest. Dark chocolate is rich in flavonoids, a group of phytochemicals that act as antioxidants. It makes the perfect complement to blueberries which are packed with phytochemicals anthocyanins, ellagic acid and resveratrol.
