Have you ever been to the Cheesecake Shop and have you ever bought the Jamaican chocolate cheesecake?
The Jamaican Chocolate Cheesecake used to be my sisters birthday cake of choice (with perhaps a little nagging from me) and each year I would savour that thin slither I was given (way to rich for a big chunk) and lock the memory of the rich taste in my mind.
Now I'm guessing not many of you have tried this particular cheesecake, but if you have just take a minute to recall the taste of that extremely rich, decadent and intensely chocolatey, smooth, baked cheesecake.
Got the flavour in your
Yes, for breakfast.
Yes, it was super rich.
Yes, it was actually healthy.
So, if you're feeling something extremely decadent, delicious, healthy and filling for brekky- give this one a whirl!
1/3 cup (heaped) steal cut oats
1 scoop choc protein powder
2 teaspoons raw cacao powder
A couple of dashes of ground cinnamon
A sprinkle of chia seeds
1 cup milk of choice (I used almond milk)
1 cup water
1/3 cup greek yoghurt
Optional- small handful of cacao nibs
Optional- coconut butter
1. Place the oats, protein powder, cacao powder, cinnamon and chia seeds in a medium saucepan
2. Pour in the milk and water and stir to combine
3. Place over medium heat and stir occasionally for around 15 minutes (it should bubble away consistently) I added some coconut butter at this stage just to give it some coconutty flavour.
4. If it looks a bit dry and sticky that's fine because now you add in the yoghurt and give it a nice stir together. Again I added a touch more (teaspoon) coconut butter here.
5. Pour into bowl and top with coconut butter.
6. Et voila!
For some other news:
My party yesterday went great- lot's of laughter, fun, swimming, games and FOOD!
Also- I have developed a cold. Yay. Which is why I was a bit surprised when I made my delicious cheesecake breakfast because I've been sticking to simple, no fuss meals lately that I always crave when sick. Like last nights dinner:
Seriously, this dinner was perfect. It was exactly what I wanted and is without a doubt one of my favourite meals.
See, when I get sick I only really get sick in my head, my body is still full of beans and felt great running! (trust me I wouldn't have been running for that long if I was dying of the flu!)
So, I think you're all caught up on the life of me and my tummy! :D
Favourite type of cheesecake (flavour etc.)? I must say this was my favourite dessert before my healthy shift.
