It’s almost advent calendar season so in my mind that means it’s acceptable to have chocolate in the morning.😋

Chocolate gets a bad reputation for being unhealthy but it’s not the cacao itself that is the issue. It’s all the extra added sugar and fat that makes its maybe not the best option for breakfast.

However, in this recipe I used @naturesheartsuperfoods raw cacao powder which is cold-pressed, saving all the amazing nutrients and making them easy for our body’s to absorb


Did you know that cacao:


• is the richest source of plant-based iron
• is full of magnesium
• has more calcium than cows milk
• is a natural anti-depressant

I think it’s fair to say that chocolate porridge is a great way to start the day ☺️💛.
