Black Forest Trifle

Serves: 1 (large serving)

Happy Thursday! We are quickly approaching the end of the week! I bet you are just as excited as I am!!!! :) Tomorrow is the boyfriends birthday (30th…shhh!!) and he has requested a 7-layer cake! Yes, a homemade 7 layer cake! He wants a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting….and not a healthy one! haha So you can all guess what I will be spending half of my day doing tomorrow!! Of course, I will be making myself my own little mini healthy 7-layer cake so I can participate in the chocolate fun too…..but without the guilt and flour! ? I am sure you will see some pictures on Instagram/Twitter over the weekend! And if you don’t follow me on either of those 1) you should be asking yourself why not?! ? and 2) I will share some pictures….and maybe a recipe with you next week!

But in the mean time, here is a nice chocolate dessert that you can enjoy, guilt free, this weekend! It is so healthy you could eat it for breakfast, like I might have done one morning when I was craving sugar after a long run and tough lift! Ooops! ?

Ok, so I don’t really think you need me to tell you how utterly amazing this trifle tasted!! It was literally like heaven to my mouth! It had a deep chocolate flavor from the cocoa powder and hemp, which was offset by the creamy ricotta and sweetness of the cherries! I might have just happened to eat this 2 days in a row! ? DELICIOUS!!! Now, stop drooling and quickly run and make one! :)
