OVERNIGHT SOAKING ALERT!
We bought a box of chia seeds several years ago, pre-climate kind eating days, and it sat forgotten in the cupboard for a long while. Until one day, about 1BCKE (before climate kind eating), we opened the box up and thought someone was having a giraffe. Back into cupboard’s shadiest corners they went.
Then one climate kind day this October gone, we discovered what all the fuss was about. These teeny tiny seeds can transform into something quite remarkable – dessert! A completely vegan mega health dessert, without even trying.
We are late to the chia seed party (by a couple of thou and then some) but doing everything we can to catch up.
Don’t let the overnight soaking trouble you, it takes less than 10mins to prepare and when you wake up breakfast is waiting for you.
5 mins | serves 3 | about the easiest thing ever
2 cups coconut milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 vanilla pod goo, or 1/2 tsp extract
1/4 cup maple syrup, or your preferred sweetner
Chocolate – 1/4 cup cocoa powder
Chai – 1 tsp ground cinnamon and a pinch of ground up cardamom pod and cloves
- Blend the coconut milk, vanilla, maple syrup and your choosen flavourings in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in the chia seeds. Transfer to a serving bowl/maison jars/ramekins – glass is nice – cover and fridge it for at least 4 hours
more variations (add to the blender):
Strawberry – 1/2 cup fresh strawberries
PB&J – 2 tbsp each of PB and J – or more!
Pecan – 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Matcha – 1 tbsp matcha green tea powder
You get the drift.
We’ve just used fridge as a verb. Unsettling. The fifth and final part of T5G, has it been worth the wait? Leave a comment and let us know, won’t cha.
