BREAKFAST BERRY SMOOTHIE with CACAO DRIZZLE + CHIA PUDDING


Yo. This recipe is part of a Breakfast In Bed Fest series hosted by Canned Time! I am keeping it simple with a delicious fruit smoothie paired with raw chocolate sauce and chia seed pudding. This is not as big as my normal breakfast smoothies usually are but the chia seeds make you feel really full, so I was more than satisfied after drinking it up. Chia seeds are super sexy and super good for you; they help keep your hair and skin glowing, and your digestion system happily humming. The smoothie tastes more like a vegan milkshake than anything else, especially when you drizzle it with wholesome dark chocolate! This recipe is a winner. Try it out for breakfast or anything time of day, and show some love over at Canned Time right now!




BREAKFAST BERRY SMOOTHIE with CACAO DRIZZLE + CHIA PUDDING

Chia pudding:
1/4 cup walnut milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds

Smoothie:
1 1/2 cups walnut milk
1 banana
1 cup frozen mango
1/4 cup strawberries

Cacao drizzle:
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Water, if needed

To make the chia pudding: stir together the chia seeds and walnut milk, then let it sit for 10 minutes. The chia seeds will double in size and soak up the milk so it becomes like rice pudding!

To make the smoothie: blend everything until smooth. 

To make the cacao drizzle: stir together the ingredients until combined. If it's not drizzly enough, add a tiny bit of water. Layer the pudding, smoothie and cacao drizzle as desired in a glass, then enjoy! I put the chia pudding in the bottom of the glass, drizzled the chocolate sauce inside the glass, then poured in the smoothie.
