Thrifty Breakfast Series #2: Blood Orange Chocolate In Yogurt With Protein

July 2, 2018

Protein is one of the best ways to ensure a cheap breakfast. You want to know why? You get full faster. A poorly balanced breakfast might lead you to eat more in order for you get full. You haven't had everything you should before starting your day, so your body seeks out more stuff.


At least that's what my doctor says! If you think you have actual problems with eating or want to get advice from a nutritionist, go see a professional. The Thrifty Breakfast series is of my own design and I am not a doctor.


Getting back on topic, blood orange with chocolate mixed in with a combination of protein yogurt is is one of the best ways to get your dose of protein. It only takes a few seconds to make, and it tastes great. Let's jump right in!


Get some protein rich yogurt to your liking. You will have to look at labels for a bit, but much like the existence of low fat yogurt, there is yogurt with extra protein. If you want to be super healthy, go with a plain protein rich yogurt. But there are flavored yogurts with a lot of protein too.


Vanilla yogurt tastes really good with this, but feel free to use anything! Like key lime pie yogurt.



Chop up a blood orange into slices. Once you've sliced up your blood orange, drop it into the yogurt. It's easier to eat if you transfer the yogurt into a bowl first instead of trying to eat out of the container.


You can usually find a blood orange in a normal franchised supermarket. They look like regular oranges, but when you cut them open they're a juicy, vibrant red. Obviously you can't slice one open in a supermarket, but it should be properly labeled. If you can't find one, just ask for help. You know you have the right fruit by it's faint, tart smell.



As the finishing touch, buy a fine bar of chocolate. this tastes best when it's jut a regular bar. I don't usually go for fillings. I usually choose a dark chocolate bar and break it into squares. I find the bitter taste goes well with the strong taste of the blood orange.


But if you're doing this of the first time, you might need the sweetness of milk chocolate to properly offset the taste of the blood orange. It's an acquired taste and may take some getting used to. 


Sprinkle the chocolate on top of the orange, letting some fall in the yogurt.



Go ahead and enjoy your mixture with a huge spoon!
