My ‘Breakfast In Bed-Festival’ this year is really just a sneaky way of sharing my favorite Vegan bloggers best breakfast recipes with you all and having a bit of competitive fun all the while. As I have said
too many lots of times before, I leave out for work in the pre-pre-dawn hours, more like the middle of the night for some, I’m sure. I don’t get the luxury very often to enjoy a wonderfully fresh home made breakfast to enjoy in the comfort of my home. So I’m hosting a little monthly highlight this year of the best of the best in healthy breakfast ideas for days when I am able to spend more time enjoying breakfast. I’ve asked 12 of the most creative, health conscious and economically minded bloggers to each share 1 breakfast that highlights both their own website and their own ingenuity for eating healthily, kindly and creatively. At year’s end, we’ll have a little vote on which month’s posting you all enjoyed the most and congratulate the winner with a few kind words and some prizes. There’s a Pinterest board you can follow to see how the event unfolds each month with all the recipes and news about my Breakfast In Bed-Fest and it’s participants.
This month, I’m welcoming Emily
Her Breakfast Berry Smoothie with Cacao Drizzle and Chia Pudding
is Breakfast In Bed-Fest entry #10
I am keeping it simple with a delicious fruit smoothie paired with raw chocolate sauce and chia seed pudding. This is not as big as my normal breakfast smoothies usually are but the chia seeds make you feel really full, so I was more than satisfied after drinking it up. Chia seeds are super sexy and super good for you; they help keep your hair and skin glowing, and your digestion system happily humming. The smoothie tastes more like a vegan milkshake than anything else, especially when you drizzle it with wholesome dark chocolate! This recipe is a winner. Try it out for breakfast or anything time of day!
Also, if you like this recipe and want more easy, healthy, vegan smoothies and other drinks – be sure to check out my brand-new cookbook! It’s called 100 Best Juices, Smoothies & Healthy Snacks and features page after page of colour photos and fool-proof recipes for everything from green juices to fruit smoothies to soups to nut milks to wholesome snacks like energy bars and kale chips!

BREAKFAST BERRY SMOOTHIE with CACAO DRIZZLE + CHIA PUDDING
1/4 cup walnut milk
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 1/2 cups walnut milk
1 cup frozen mango
1/4 cup strawberries
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Water, if needed
To make the chia pudding: stir together the chia seeds and walnut milk, then let it sit for 10 minutes. The chia seeds will double in size and soak up the milk so it becomes like rice pudding!
To make the smoothie: blend everything until smooth.
To make the cacao drizzle: stir together the ingredients until combined. If it’s not drizzly enough, add a tiny bit of water. Layer the pudding, smoothie and cacao drizzle as desired in a glass, then enjoy! I put the chia pudding in the bottom of the glass, drizzled the chocolate sauce inside the glass, then poured in the smoothie.
