Chocolate at breakfast?? Is that healthy?? The answer is yes! The right kinda chocolate. The pure cacao bean is one of natures richest source of antioxidants and magnesium. It also contains tryptophan, which helps us produce our feel good hormone serotonin. That is why we feel so good when we eat chocolate. The important thing to consider is the quality of chocolate. This super breakfast has Vega Instant chocolate smoothie which contains pure cocoa powder and raw cacao nibs. The cacao nibs are the true super food. You see, as you process and heat chocolate you damage the healthy properties. When purchasing a chocolate bar to enjoy look for at least 70% or higher % of cacao to get the most bang for your buck. I always look for the lowest sugar option. Organic and free trade are always the best way to go!

This heavenly breakfast also contains other super foods like; gogi berries (beta carotene, antioxidants), chia seeds (fiber, calcium and omega 3) and sheep milk yogurt (healthy gut bacteria).

The Vega Smoothie mix contains 12 grams of quality veggie protein, fiber, green super foods and healthy gut bacteria! 

So even though this breakfast feels so indulgent, it is a true super powered breakfast that you can enjoy knowing that your body is thanking you ;o)

  • 1/2 cup or so of sheep's milk yogurt (or cows/goats)
  • 2 tbsp Shake and Go Vega Instant Smoothie
Mix these ingredients together to make a pudding like texture. This part is even good just on its own! Then sprinkle on the following.
  • 1-2 tbsp gogi berries
  • 1 tbsp cocao nibs
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
Other options include; fresh sliced berries, 1/2 banana, or other seasonal fruit! Other nuts and seeds would also be great. You could use flax instead of chia seeds.


  1. This recipe sounds interesting. Where can you fnd chia seeds?

  2. You can buy chia seeds at any health food store. They are a great source of fiber, omega 3's and calcium.
    You might also be able to get them at the bulk barn!

  3. Looks amazing, Jamie! I love the Vega protein powder, never tried the smoothie mix.

  4. This looks soooo good - going to try for sure!
