OMG its a Tuesday Blog....and its a Yummy One

Why hello there, it's been a little while. No hell hasn't frozen over and, well, I may have seen a pig fly earlier today across my yard trying to escape the sudden downpour of rain. (Yes I have a pig, no she is not for eating!!)

I have seriously just found the time to write a little something, and I've missed all of you and wanted to say hello. 

Anyway, here is a YUMMY recipe I stumbled upon on PaleOMG via Facebook. If you haven't liked their page yet, well go do it now! You will NOT be sorry!

Here is the WONDERFUL recipe I made today:


Ohhhhhhh this stuff is to die for. Seriously I want to eat the WHOLE 8 servings I made.....but I have to be good and try to just eat one serving at a time. Yes, it's torture.

I made a few changes and I quadrupled the original recipe so that I could just use up the whole can of Coconut Milk.... and even if you are not a Coconut Milk fan....the chocolate and coffee flavors totally overpower any coconut taste at all.
What you will need........

1 Cup of brewed coffee (Chilled)
I full can of Full FAT Coconut Milk
4 heaping tablespoons of Almond Butter
3 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract (I used a little bit of butter extract and almond extract I was all out of vanilla)
Two scoops of Protein Powder (mine was banana smoothie by 
2 tablespoons of Agave or Maple Syrup (I skipped this and I just added a little agave as needed)
4 tablespoons of Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)
1 cup of Chia Seeds

So all you do is combine all the ingredients above except the Chia Seeds in a blender and blend until smooth. Then in a big container (I used a big mason jar) put in the liquid chocolate mixture and the cup of Chia seeds and shake until combined. 

Refrigerate for 3 hours and enjoy!!!!!! It is so yummy, add a little bit more agave or sweetener of your choice, I like doing that just so I can control my sugar and I find adding Protein Powder usually sweetens things for me enough without adding more. 

I hope all of you enjoy this tasty little treat. Thank you, Paleo Gods!!

  1. I will have to try this when our shipment of whey comes in. Sounds yummy! I've seen these types of recipes around but have been hesitant to try them. I think it's the texture that might freak me out. Chia seeds in smoothies, I don't even notice. But chia seeds in my water or juice, I totally notice when they start expanding! Nevertheless, I think I will have to give this a go!
