I’ve wanted to create this recipe for a little while, and got to making it today. I was really amazed at how well it turned out!
This is a great, easy recipe for a nutritious, delicious dessert (or breakfast!). It is completely raw, and has plenty of chia seeds, which provide lots of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.
You will need:
1 cup nut milk (I used fresh brazil nut milk)
2 Tablespoons coconut syrup
1 Tablespoon raw cacao powder
1/3 cup chia seeds
2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon chopped walnuts
2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon shredded coconut
Blend together the nut milk, coconut syrup and cacao powder. This is best done in a blender or shaken vigorously in a jar. If you whisk it, the cacao is hard to blend in completely.
Put into a bowl and whisk in the chia seeds. Let sit for about 15 minutes, whisking occasionally, until it has thickened into a pudding-like consistency.
Stir in 2 Tablespoons of walnuts, and 2 Tablespoons of coconut, mixing well.
Put into serving dishes ~ makes 2 half-cup servings. Garnish with the remaining nuts and coconut.
The taste is really wonderful. The brazil nut milk gives it a nice, earthy taste, and the coconut syrup give depth to the chocolate flavor. You can substitute for both of these things ~ almond milk and agave would be fine ~ the flavor would change slightly, but it would still be great!
