Clean Lean Protein recipe


Recipe by Charissa & Co

A dark chocolate mousse breakfast inspired meal. Dark cacao, not the commercial (sugar-loaded cacao), but the actual natural form boasts many benefits.

Dark cacao is high in magnesium, iron, copper as well as potassium and even fiber. 

Dark cacao in moderation is great for getting added antioxidants to ward off free radical damage to the bodies cells.

It is known that the Nitric Oxide found in raw dark cacao act as a vasodilator within the lining of the arteries, therefore as the arterial walls relax there is less resistance of blood flow pushing up against the arterial walls. Therefore keeping arteries to a relaxed state (widen) allows for more richer blood flow throughout the body with reduced Blood Pressure.

Raw dark cacao is heat sensitive, therefore the healthy properties within cacao become rancid once heated especially the fats found in cacao. Therefore it is more beneficial and alkaline to keep cacao in its raw dark form.


The chocolate mousse has added protein from the use of Nuzest Clean Lean Protein. The amino acids profile within the Nuzest protein powder provides all 9 essential amino acids, these are key amino acids to add to our lifestyles as our bodies can not naturally produce these.
