Chocolate Breakfast Quinoa

Many of us are stuck at homes under lockdown, and it’s important to look after ourselves and eat healthily. But healthy doesn’t have to be dull and flavourless! Today, I’m coming with a healthy breakfast treat recipe. Perhaps slightly less healthy than a smoothie from leafy greens, but still made with natural ingredients, low in fat and sugar, but packed with protein and macro elements. And most importantly – delicious!

Cherry and chocolate are one of my favourite flavour combinations. It just feels like they complement each other perfectly. The delicate sourness of cherries breaks the sweetness of chocolate and adds the perfect flavour definition.
