Since lately my lifestyle has been pretty sedentary aside from my weekly physical therapy sessions (still waiting for that bum ankle to heal…), I opted out of chocolate cakes/brownies/souffles/molten lava cake and attempted to make something on the healthy-yet-still-delicious side. Amy and I have also noticed that we don’t have a solid arsenal of breakfast options on the blog… and chocolate for breakfast?? How dangerous and exciting!! So here is a semi-healthy CHOCOLATE smoothie for you.
You will need (for one serving):
1 cup fresh cherries, pitted
1 tbsp nutella
1 oz dark chocolate (I used two Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares)
1 cup soy milk (or regular milk)
6-8 raw almonds
Put all of the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, process until smooth, pour into a glass and enjoy!
This isn’t QUITE as delicious as I would have liked… perhaps adding a banana or substituting plain yogurt for the soymilk/milk would help. But you still get a nice chocolate fix while eating a super quick protein-rich breakfast. Can’t complain too much!
