The other week, I was skyping with my sister which as usual, ended in a debate. 

We were trying to think of who we viewed as a villain during our childhood. 

Although we have a 3 year age difference, we both grew up watching the same television shows and movies. I think my sister got it easy, as I remember my mom was extremely strict with what I was able to watch without adult supervision.

Anyway.

My sister started ranting off a list of possible villains-

  • Scar- The Lion King
  • Ursula- The Little Mermaid
  • The Joker- Batman
  • The glass slipper- Cinderella (Um… don’t ask me what the innocent glass slipper did to fall under this category. Squash the step sister’s left foot?)
  • Ginger Spice- The Spice Girls (She said it was evil of her to leave the group during their peak. Spice up your life)

To me, however, there was one villain who continues to haunt me to this day.

Meredith.

OH EM GEE MEREDITH FROM THE PARENT TRAP.

You guys, I still remember seeing this in the cinemas with Niki. We went with our older cousin and from the moment our eyes fell on her, you could tell she was the devil in human form. Like all good (and typical) movies, Nick Parker dumped her lizard infused mouth and ended with L.O.V.E….the song.

To this day, when I think of my mom scary things, I see her artificially morphed face and shivers go down my spine. Send me a ghost any day before you send MEREDITH my way. 

Anyway

Just needed to get this vital piece of information out of the way. 

Before we jump into today’s recipe, it’s also Wednesday which means a full day of eats!

I’m more than halfway into the whole30 Challenge and it’s gotten easier. Granted, it’s been seamless, due to a ton of food prep. My breakfasts have all been smoothies or shakes (an easy way to get a load of fresh produce out of the way), and I’ve been eating many omelets and several recipes from here. I’m beyond stoked that ALL potatoes are included, as that has provided some variety too!

What I ate Wednesday- thebigmansworld.com

Breakfast- Unpictured breakfast smoothie, although I went a little heavy on the almond butter here. Lunch- A leftover breakfast pizza, with a few of these grilled beauties. Dinner was a boring omelet, topped with some of this salad. It was the best of both worlds- Sweet, savory and crunchy! 

Now for today’s recipe!

It’s clear I’m a fan of the raspberry and chocolate combination. However, I have a very odd way of eating it. I’m not the biggest fan of chocolate and raspberries overly mixed together. What does that mean? It means that if cookies have chocolate and raspberries in them, I eat the chocolate pieces/chunks first, before eating the cookie with raspberries in them. The same goes for cakes too. 

As mentioned earlier, I’ve been having smoothies for breakfast, because they are filling, easy and delicious. I wanted to have some raspberry/cacao action happening, but without them being mixed together. How do we combat this minor issue? One layer of a cacao spiked smoothie and one layer of a raspberry spiked smoothie- The best of both worlds!

This healthy chocolate (cacao!) raspberry breakfast smoothie needs only four ingredients, and is thick, creamy and has two delicious layers! It may take a little extra prep (it is two layers), but it’s totally worth it! It’s filling, loaded with amazing textures and perfect to keep you satisfied all morning. Because of the ingredients used, this thick and creamy breakfast shake is naturally gluten free, vegan, grain free, paleo, dairy free and sugar free! 

Let’s talk the ‘chocolate’ layer in relation to the Whole 30- 100% cocoa powder is allowed on the Whole30, but it cannot be mixed with fruit or dates, to make a chocolate-esque dessert. As an alternative, I opted to use carob powder. Although some may claim that carob powder tastes like cocoa, I found it quite bitter and vastly different. 

HACK! For those who want a thicker smoothie OR want to prep this in advance, throw in some extra chia seeds! I found when I did that, it thickened, especially when left in the fridge for several hours after making it (Thank you, FedEx, for wasting my morning)

Make this healthy 4 Ingredient Chocolate Raspberry Layered Breakfast Smoothie and enjoy the best of both worlds, separately. 

…or go hang out with Meredith.

  1. I’m with your sister on this one. Ursula was way scarier, especially with that “poor unfortunate souls” song. Shiver. Also shoes can be scary too, if you’ve got the wrong ones or a heel breaks. 🙂

    I love the chocolate raspberry combo; one of my all time favorites.

  2. Hahaha! Now that’s totally a flashback. Meredith. She really was the devil…great childhood movie, by the way. For me, I’d add Dr. Claw and Gargamel to that list. But only “fun” villains. As far as real villains, Freddy Kreuger. That dude was so messed up. And I could never kill him on the Nintendo game either. Love the layered smoothie idea here…that looks awesome! Maybe I’ll make one for Laura for Valentine’s Day this year. 🙂

  3. I definitely agree that Ursula was super scary! I also hated Gaston, but he wasn’t really scary, just mean. I love the fruit/chocolate combos, but I don’t usually make them because Riley has a weird thing about fruit- no fruit and chocolate, no fruit in salads, no fruit with meat. It’s ridiculous.

  4. I love how pretty this is!
    And oh my gosh—I haven’t thought about Disney villains from my childhood in years. I think I have to go with…Scar from The Lion King. Or Jafar from Aladdin—super scary.

  5. Wow how do you get a day of eats that looks so photogenic… When I think about Disney Villains, this may sound really odd, but I really didn’t like Gaston from Beauty and the Beast. 😀 And chocolate + raspberry is always good.

  6. HAHAHAHAHA im sorry but i can’t stop laughing about Meredith… why is Meredith always the worst character. have you seen the family stone? because sarah jessica parker (as meredith) is my least favorite human that has ever not officially existed IRL.

    then one time i was watching pretty little liars and some skank (obvi named meredith) was in it and all of the girls had a 10 minute conversation on “ew, her name is Meredith.. that’s not even a cute girl name” =l

    So there’s my rant on that.. yet i will still never be able to watch that movie with the siamese cats. we are siaamesseee if you pleaseeee

    LOVE YOUR LAYERED SMOOTHIES KBAIIII <3 A

  7. The Parent Trap – ah, all the memories! I can’t remember exactly how often my sister and I watched this movie during our childhood. It’s a classic and way better than some of the children’s movies these days.
    A layered smoothie – I like it! For me, though, you’d have to switch proportions. Chocolate > raspberries ;).

  8. My cousin’s Disney villain #1 was the prince (former beast) in Beauty and the Beast. Because she liked the beast so much she was shattered when it turned into the prince.

    I basically deconstruct every baked good. The worst is probably strudel. I like to eat the pastry layers and the filling sperately. Strudel massacre 😉
