Chocolate Breakfast

Sounds delightfully sinful, doesn’t it? It can be rather healthy though! Chocolate is actually full of antioxidants that helps fight off disease and keep your overall immune system happy! So if you avoid mixing it with lots of sugar, but rather choose to mix it with nuts, fruits, and berries, you have a healthy breakfast right there. Below we found an amazing recipe from The Guardian.

If you just want a traditional hot chocolate for your morning instead, try using Van Houten’s Special Bar Hot Chocolate – it’s one of the highest quality brands out there and you can be sure there is only two things in the powder: sugar and chocolate.

Blackberry and Chocolate Layered Milkshake

Serves 2

15 fresh blackberries (or thawed if frozen) (can be exchanged for raspberries)
2 frozen bananas (or fresh bananas and 2 ice cubes)
250ml coconut milk 
120ml almond milk (or milk of your choice)
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp cocoa nibs (optional)
1 tbsp nut butter (almond, peanut or cashew)

1) Divide the blackberries between two glasses. Mash them gently in the bottom of the glasses with a pestle or the end of a rolling pin.

2) Put the rest of the ingredients in a blender and run on high speed until frothy. Pour carefully into the glasses, making sure the blackberries stay on the bottom, and serve immediately.
