Fat-tastic & Filling Breakfast Hot Chocolate
CATEGORIES: Breakfast Drinks Recipes Snacks + Treats
It probably doesn’t come as a surprise but I eat some form of chocolate every darn day.
Often in the form of a chocolate green smoothie or homemade chocolate brownies with a cup of tea or in the form of hot chocolate.
And to be honest it is most often in the form of hot chocolate….
Coffee in the morning doesn’t sit well with me unless it is organic decaf and I have had a huge breakfast so I often opt for hot cocoa for an energy and magnesium boost. (Magnesium is the BOMB for your body and it is likely that you are deficient – click here to find out why)
This is also a great option for a those of you who can’t face breakfast or just simply don’t have the time. You can blend this up and it will keep you going for a good while due to the fact that it has lots of quality fats.
Yes FATS. I nearly called this Fatty Fatty Boom Boom Dark Hot Chocolate but alas I have google to take into consideration! It is inspired by the whole bulletproof coffee thing which people often use when intermittent fasting which is not something I do often as it leaves me with less energy, not more…
This would also be fabulous for those of you who are pregnant or lactating or looking to put on some weight or doing some gut healing BUT don’t worry you are not going to become the size of a house if you drink this. Quality fats DON’T make you fat unless you binge on them crazy style. I have some form of healthy fat with every meal and at least one of my snacks and it has really helped my hormones and mood to stablise.
