This is one of my favorite chia recipes and makes an amazing treat for any occasion.
- 1 1/2 cups raw cashews
- A few heaping tablespoons of dark cocoa
- 1/2 cup – 1 cup chia seeds (preference based)
- 1/4 pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
Soak the cashews overnight (or a few hours depending on the consistency you want)
Add all ingredients, including cashews, into a food processor. Blend until smooth and serve chilled.
And it really is just that easy. A super healthy, super tasty, quick treat to make. The chia seeds alone are packed full of nutrients; protein, calcium, magnesium, and Omega 3’s, just to name a few. Dark cocoa (the real stuff!) is an excellent source of iron and other trace minerals. Although pure maple syrup is high in sugar, it still contains some vitamins, minerals and antioxidants; the most notable being zinc and manganese.
The next time you crave chocolate or simply want a fast and easy dessert that tastes amazing, this is the recipe for you. Enjoy!
