Grain-Free Cream of Chocolate (nut-free option)

Cream of chocolate is my perfected version of cream of wheat. This breakfast treat is the perfect combination of a warm, hearty, nutritious, filling breakfast and a sweet chocolate decadence; with a punch of proteins, healthy fats, antioxidants, and nutrients.

This treat is actually a typical late night snack at our house; my sweet-toothed husband is addicted to chocolate. He HAS to have something sweet and “chocolaty” an hour or so after dinner, we are not talking about a light snack, we are talking about a “ please make a triple batch of this and bring me a half a pound of trail mix”, because I burned that 18-ounce steak, and 3 pounds of veggies before I even put the fork down.  I am not exactly sure how he manages to eat like that and still have single digit body fat. Somebody please explain that to me?

Cream of chocolate is a variation of my breakfast porridge,  but, for this one you don’t have to soak the almonds overnight, blend them and strain them to make almond milk, you are using cashews and water instead. When making nut milks the process is basically the same for most types of nuts, but when using macadamia nuts or cashews you can skip the soaking and straining process, and the milk will still be smooth and creamy.

For other breakfast ideas try my chocolate baked pancakes, banana nut muffins or my absolute favorite, banana scramble.
