Happy Monday!

We are knee (waist?) deep in a blizzard up here, so at least I have that going for me at the start of a new week.

And that my friends is why chocolate (and wine) exists.

And it just so happens that tomorrow is the national day of roses and chocolate. I’m usually a hipster when it comes to Valentine’s Day, meaning flowers and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates are actually the last gift I’d want to receive. A dozen of these chocolate pb covered strawberries on the other hand are a go any day, every day.

But I know I’m weird and in the minority when it comes to most things, and I think every day (especially blizzards on a Monday) can start on the right foot when chocolate is involved.

I’m no stranger to adding MyProtein’s protein powders to my morning smoothies and even bowls of oatmeal, but I was excited to hear about their new line of organic products that inspired this choco-lover’s creation.

That is, if you like your chocolate of the tall, dark, and chia variety.

If you’ve never had cacao nibs, much like me before making this, they are bits of cacao beans, aka the healthy fruit that chocolate is made from prior to adding all that deliciously addicting sugar.

I love the big ol’ crunch they give to this chia pudding, because I’m all about that texture thang. PLUS they’re full of all those antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3’s us nutrition people are always going on and on about.

This makes enough to power one chocolate loving BA through a Monday morning, but if you’re in the mood for sharing during this season of love, this would make a sweet little ending after a dinner for two. AND you deserve a gold medal for such an act of kindness and generosity.

Or like, a piece of 14K gold jewelry of your preference. 😉

  2. Maybe I’m just really out of touch with current things , but what is a chocolate-flavored sweetener? I’m super interested in making this but I have no idea what that means. Thanks for your help!

    • Hi Alannah! They are usually stevia-based drops, and come in all different flavors, chocolate being one. You could use your favorite sweetener in it’s place though!
