Chia seeds are tiny superfood heroes. They come in either white or dark brown/black and have a huge nutritional profile. They contain Calcium, Manganese, and Phosphorus and are packed with fiber, protein, and healthy Omega-3 fats. They are basically tasteless so you can add them to nearly any kind of dish. Add raspberries, cocoa nibs, and coconut and you have a decadent yet healthy dessert.
1 cup coconut milk or almond milk
3 tbsp. chia seeds
1 tbsp. coconut nectar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 cups fresh organic raspberries
1 tbsp. coconut flakes (optional)
1 tbsp. raw cacao nibs (optional)
In a medium sized bowl, combine milk and chia seeds and stir until there are no lumps.
Add coconut nectar and vanilla and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Place raspberries in a Vitamix or food processor and puree.
Mix the raspberries with the chia pudding until completely mixed.
Serve in a glass or bowl and top with coconut and/or cacao nibs (optional). Happy V Day!
