real food. real life.
I don't know what took me so long to try this. I kept seeing it come up on my news feed as easy and delicious, and I've had it pinned forever!! I finally got to it and whipped a small batch up to see what all the fuss was about. And by whip, I literally mean I took about 2 minutes out of my day to mix 4 ingredients together. So easy.
How does it taste? Well, chocolatey for sure. Sweet. The chia seeds add a funny texture, but once you can get past that, you can appreciate the yummy flavour and the nutrients that a chia seed packs. If you've never tried chia seeds, they don't have much taste on their own. So, definitely add flavours. But they start to expand in a liquid and become kind of jelly-like little beads. So, yeah, the texture is a bit odd. But the taste is delicious. It's worth a try!
Total Time: 2 minutes prep + 1-12 hours sitting in the fridge
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
What to do:
1) Combine chia seeds and almond milk in an air tight container. Set aside for about 10 minutes until chia seeds start to expand.
2) Then add maple syrup and cocoa powder. Mix well. Cover and place in refrigerator! After 1 hour, it tastes good but is still pretty thin. After 12 hours, it thickens up to a nice oatmeal-like texture. A delicious treat!
We really cooked these things. From scratch. On weeknights. And we even had time to do the dishes.
They have real, simple ingredients that you'll find in your cupboards. They're healthy and delicious. No lies.
