Valentine’s Day Breakfast: Chocolate and Raspberry x 2

This morning I was trying to get into the Valentine’s Day spirit, and make a breakfast that to me said love and happiness. Chocolate came to mind, as who doesn’t like chocolate. Fruit and chocolate are a great pair, and I had frozen raspberries in the freezer. So, there you go, the perfect pair. Since it’s been so cold, I wanted to make oatmeal. Brett doesn’t usually care for oatmeal, so I made him something similar, just in a smoothie form.

So, we have a Chocolate and Raspberry Smoothie and Chocolate and Raspberry Oatmeal

Choco-Raspberry Smoothie: You can always opt for adding 1 tbsp cocoa powder and plain whey protein, or substituting plain Greek yogurt in its place for the protein punch. The chia seeds add a good source of omega 3 fatty acids and fiber. You are half way to your daily fiber goal with this smoothie.

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 banana

Choco-Raspberry Oatmeal: The hemp and chia seeds add a nice punch of fiber, omega 3 fatty acids and protein to this oatmeal. Just this breakfast alone gives you more than half of your daily intake of fiber.

  • 1/2 cup raspberries (frozen)
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
