Chocolate & PB Chia Pudding

Text

The sun is out, I spent the morning sitting in my backyard soaking up some luscious rays before work today. What a way to spend the morning! Who needs to rush in the morning? Wake up slow, take it easy.

This is a make-ahead breakfast and who doesn’t love that? Throw a bunch of stuff into a mason jar, shake it up before you go to bed and VOILA chia pudding. What.. okay.. if you insist…

It almost tastes like chocolate & peanut butter mousse. But.. for breakfast?! Is this real life? Heaven? All I know is that this is a chocolate peanut butter explosion and it’s healthy. Uhh..

Not only are chia seeds delicious, but they have a whole lot of health benefits. Chalk full of fibre and omega 3’s, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and protein. I recently learned that chia seeds contain tryptophan… the amino acid found in Turkey! Not only is that responsible for the urge to nap, but it also can regulate¬†mood and appetite. They also have cholesterol lowering properties. So.. why are you not eating chia seeds? TELL ME!

3 tbsp Chia Seeds
1 tbsp Raw Cacao
1 tbsp Peanut Butter
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp Maple Syrup
1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
Unsweetened dessicated coconute, dates, blueberries (for topping)

1. In a jar or container, mix all ingredients (except for toppings) and shake it up! Make sure it is all incorporated.
2. Put in the fridge overnight!
3. Wake up and eat your chocolate chia goodness.

Extreme Smoothie Roundup!

I know I’ve been a tad MIA for a few months and I will just blame that on the accessibility of taking iPhone photos.

So quick, so easy. No photoshop.

Then a friend suggested I simply take all of my iPhone photos (really just meant for instagram) and post them in one giant smoothie roundup (because my instagram has taken a turn into smoothie-land).

I make a new kind of smoothie for myself for breakfast everyday and it really is the only breakfast that keeps me sufficiently full. Considering I can sneak in some boosters – chia seeds, hemp, spinach, kale, dates. It really is the best. Who needs to digest things fully from the start when you can jump start the process and make it easier on your body? AND there are 8000 combinations. Infinite, one might say, ENDLESS even. Yes. Endless smoothie creations. Sign me up. So let us begin, shall we?
