Breakfast is and always will be my favorite meal of the day.
Unfortunately, I don't always have the brain power and/or the time to make an elaborate breakfast that tastes great.
It's easy to make a mediocre breakfast in a hurry or with little thought, but who wants to start their day that way? Not me!
I want my day to start off way better than mediocre. How about starting the day with chocolate?! Sign me up!
This can be rocky territory however because eating chocolate candy would not make for a very good breakfast. I'd probably get a stomachache or sugar crash or both.
However, many chocolate flavored breakfast options are subpar at best. And I have no patience for lame chocolate substitutes. I want real chocolatey flavor, and I also want a substantial meal that will fill me up.
Luckily, this dilemma of a substantial breakfast full of rich chocolatey flavor that requires little brain power is resolved by making a smoothie using Wyman's Cherry Berry Plum with Cacao Nibs. [Note: this specific mix might not be available, so use Triple Berry or any Wild Blueberry blend and toss in a few tablespoons of cocoa nibs for chocolate flavor]
The combination of cherries, wild blueberries, and plums with the cacao nibs is magical and oh so satisfying.
Plus, all the prep work is basically done for you. Sliced & pitted plums and cherries plus wild blueberries and chopped cacao nibs. All you do is throw the mix into a blender with some liquid and you're good to go!
I like to use milk for a creamier texture, and I also add in some other things like chia seeds, fresh baby spinach, and/or protein powder or yogurt depending on what I have in my kitchen.
