Chocolate for Breakfast

image-113
Two months ago on my birthday, I treated myself by devouring chocolate cake for breakfast. As you can imagine, the experience was beyond amazing! Lately, after further pursuing my passion for healthy eating, I reached the glorious discovery that I can have chocolate for breakfast without consuming copious calories and instead actually earning some good-health brownie points! “HOWWW?” I hear your howl; via this heavenly chocolate chia pudding of course!

Not only is this simple breakfast pudding high in protein, fibre, omega 3, antioxidants and calcium, it is also free from gluten, dairy and refined-sugar. In other words, it’s basically salad.

Most importantly though, it’s also absolutely freakin’ delicious!

So go on, treat yourself and I promise you’ll LOVE it! If you don’t (highly unlikely), I give you permission to throw it at my face, for which, I’ll thank you later!

1 cup almond or coconut milk
3 tbsp raw cacao powder
3 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
1 heaped tbsp honey

plain yoghurt (I used coconut yoghurt for a dairy-free alternative)
silvered almonds and frozen berries to decorate

Place the milk, cacao powder, chia seeds, coconut and honey in a jar and mix well. I mean, really well – some serious mixing action is required here.

Refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, mix again then top with plain yoghurt, silvered almonds and berries.
