Easy Chocolate Quinoa Pudding

As adults, we exercise our right to eat whatever we want for any meal. I think that by the time we are adults, we have earned that right. Therefore, we have most certainly earned the right to eat chocolate whenever we please. I think that that right should be acted on more. Don't you think? 

I just want to share all chocolate recipes all of the time. Especially when they are easy to whip up in one minute.

In my opinion, the best recipes are more like guidelines or ideas; you just add the ingredients to your taste, add in whatever you feel, and enjoy. That's the best way to learn and create the best dishes.

This is a dish that I just threw together one evening when I had leftover quinoa and a nasty chocolate craving. You can add everything to taste in just a couple of minutes. 

 Chocolate Quinoa Pudding Guidelines

1/2 cup cold quinoa
1/3 cup almond/soy/whatever milk
a drop of vanilla extract
1-2 Tablespoon cacao or cocoa powder
1-2 Tablespoon brown sugar or your favorite kind of sweetener like maple syrup or coconut sugar.
a sprinkle of cinnamon

Simple stir together all of the ingredients until you think it tastes like heaven and enjoy!

What's your favorite guidelines recipes?

Chocolate Fudge Overnight Oats

Once summer comes around, all I want to do is eat cold foods. I want cold pasta, cold rice, cold smoothies, etc. Oatmeal is no exception to that. If you're like me and crave cold oatmeal ready to eat when you wake up (it's much better than it sounds!), than do yourself a favor and make overnight oats! 

Everyone knows the joys of eating cold pizza in the morning so I stand by my weirdness.

Chocolate Fudge Overnight Oats

1/3 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon sweetener of choice (I choose maple syrup)
1/2 serving chocolate Sunwarrior protein powder
1 tablespoon chia seeds
a tiny pinch of salt 

Fudge Syrup:
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tbsp maple syrup, agave, or honey

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a jar of other sealed container and leave in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. When you're ready to eat, mixup some fudge syrup and pour over the top.

What is your abnormal food craving?
