Chocolate breakfast smoothie bowl (raw, vegan and gluten free)

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I like to have plenty of options when it’s time for it! However for me, breakfast has to be rich in nutrients, healthy and hearty, first of all because when I wake up I’m very hungry and second because the hours that follow it, are the most demanding of the day as I have to go to work and do thousands of things before and after it.

One of the meals I often have for breakfast is this chocolate smoothie because it’s absolutely delicious! Additionally it’s made of 100 % raw, unprocessed ingredients, it has a light and creamy mousse -like texture, it’s rich in nutrients, vitamins and beneficial omega – 3 fatty acids as well as fibers that keep me full for hours after consuming it.

Especially after my morning workout when I am even hungrier, I garnish my smoothie bowl with plenty of cereals, fruits and nuts.

Method

  1. The night before or at least half an hour before breakfast, mix the seeds in a bowl with ½ cup of water or vegan milk of your choice and leave in the refrigerator to soak. I usually soak my seeds overnight because they soften and thus add a wonderful, creamy texture to my smoothie smoothie.
  2. Put the seeds with the liquid in the blender and add the remaining ingredients. Blend at high speed until a thick cream has been formed. In my blender (which is a regular one) it doesn’t take more than 1-2 minutes.
  3. Serve immediately and garnish with breakfast cereals, fruits and nuts of your choice.
