Raw Chocolate Porridge with fresh fruit & fibre

Today I want to share a recipe that will change how you think about chocolate for breakfast.

Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Chocolate for breakfast? Isn’t that a little indulgent?”

Well, hear me out.

This recipe is perfect for those days when you’ve had an early workout and are craving something sweet or a warm and sunny day that screams a little indulgence.

And even if you don’t like chocolate in the morning, try it as an afternoon snack or dessert, or add it to your brunch spread – trust me, it will be a hit!

After experimenting with oatmeal variations such as chia seeds, nuts, chocolate milk, and cacao nibs, I found the perfect, budget-friendly recipe. All you need is rolled oats, flaxseed, cocoa, milk, and fruit.

All you have to do is soak the rolled grains, flax seeds, and milk overnight or for a few hours, then blend everything in the morning until it’s smooth and creamy.

Serve with fresh fruit; if you’re feeling fancy, top with toasted coconut flakes or nuts.

If chocolate isn’t your thing, leave it out and add spices like cardamom and vanilla for a raw fruit pudding.

You can make a big batch and enjoy it all week long because this porridge will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Just grab a serving from the fridge, add some fresh fruit, and you’re ready to go. No more boring breakfasts for you!
