A busy morning couldn’t keep me from my favorite way to enjoy chocolate, Cacao Porridge! This porridge has a special twist of quinoa and Coachs Oats cooked overnight in a crockpot. Woke up with our home smelling of chocolate. 😍🤤🍫

Ingredients: (Serves 6)

  • 1 and 1/2 cup Coach Oats
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 4 tablespoons Ripple Foods Half & Half
  • 4 tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • 5 cups water (or non-dairy milk)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

Directions:

  • Spray a medium-large crockpot wit cooking spray (don’t forget this part!)
  • Add ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
  • Cooking on medium high for roughly 6 hours (or overnight).
  • In the morning you’ll have to mix the entire serving, I added a cup of water and 1 tablespoon vanilla whey powder in the morning so the consistency wouldn’t be as thick. Your preference though!
  • Top with yogurt, banana slices, chocolate peanut butter, and more chocolate if you’d like.
  • I store the leftovers in a big tupperware in the fridge for up to five days. Enjoy!

* Cinnamon * Nutmeg
Peanut Butter Glaze:
* 1/2 cup powdered peanut butter

Additional toppings:

Directions:
* Preheat oven to 350°F.

Affogato of my dreams.

Words cannot espresso how much you mean to me, Dark Chocolate Affogato. 😍☕️🍦

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

You know you have the right gals in your life when they order an affogato at Sweet Rose Creamery. Before meeting Brenna and Maggie, I would have thought you sneezed when saying that word. I’ve always drank my coffee black, except for the occasional caramel frap in high school, so adding anything to my espresso never crossed my mind, until now. Thankful my Nespresso shipment is on it’s way and my freezer is stocked with Halo Top, there’s going to be a lot go affogato’s in my life from here on out. 👩🏻‍🍳🍦
